Beyond Multi-Domain Battle: Services Brainstorm Broader Concept
Even the Navy is tentatively putting its toe in the multi-domain waters. Their participation and enthusiasm is notably less than the other three services, with the notable exception of former Pacific Command chief Adm. Harry Harris . But their concepts for distributed lethality and distributed operations are aimed at the same kind of adversary as multi-domain operations, namely a sophisticated nation-state with long-range precision missiles. The Navy’s “distributed” concept also shares some of the same solutions, notably dispersing forces to avoid presenting easy targets and then coordinating them over a long-distance network.
