Lt. Gen. Lorri Reynolds, deputy commandant for information at the U.S. Marine Corps, said the service branch needs a mobile network to support ground forces on the battlefield, C4ISRNET reported Monday.

“We have to be able to be mobile,” she said Monday at an AFCEA-hosted event in Tysons Corner, Va. “What we have to learn to do is maneuver the network. We have to learn how to think about mobility as a tool in this war-fighting construct that we have to come up with on the network. Mobile, ad-hoc, software-defined is where we have to go.”

Reynolds said the service is learning to field the Marine Corps Enterprise Network and needs a “secure, single sign-on that enables data delivery and enables long-range targeting and fires.”
