U.S. Army Maj. Gen. Charles Flynn has said in an interview expeditionary forces need both programs of record equipment like the Warfighter Information Network-Tactical and expeditionary communications tools to be able to get and share situational awareness.

“The program of record equipment that we get is valuable for sustained operations,” Flynn, commander of the 25th Infantry Division in Hawaii, told C4ISR & Networks editor Barry Rosenberg in an interview published Monday.

Flynn added that expeditionary systems are built for rapid deployment in order to facilitate communication and secure initial reports and situational awareness.

Expeditionary forces should have a “credible coalition network at the tactical edge” that would allow them to quickly transmit data and assessments as well as improve commanders’ situational understanding at both strategic and operational levels, he said.
