USMC to Implement Information-Focused Expeditionary Groups

1 min read

The U.S. Marine Corps plans to integrate units focusing on cyber, signals, electronic and information warfare into the service's forces, C4ISRnet reported Tuesday.

The service will implement marine expeditionary force information groups in traditional formations. Lt. Gen. Lori Reynolds, the deputy commandant for information, will oversee all groups. Kenneth Bible, USMC's C4 directorate deputy director and deputy chief information officer, said at the Charleston Defense Contractors Association Defense Summit that MIGs forces would work to aid information support operations, psychological operations and military deception efforts.

Bible added the service is in the process of figuring out how MIGs can further support marine expeditionary forces. Reynolds has instructed the MIGs' advisory group to formulate exercises for more joint engagements.

The commandant cited NATO's Trident Juncture exercise as an example of testing limited assets with commanders.
