The DV day, hosted by Commander, U.S. 3rd Fleet on behalf of Commander, U.S. Pacific Fleet, provided a forum for leadership and tactical commanders to experience participating manned and unmanned systems firsthand, question subject matter experts on the capabilities and integration of the Battle Problem systems, and collaborate about the operational approach to innovating and adapting new technology.
"Our unmanned systems are a great force multiplier for our Navy," said Acting Secretary of the Navy Thomas W. Harker. "They bring a lot of capability to the Fleet."
This exercise will directly inform warfighters, warfare centers, and developers to further incorporate unmanned capabilities in day-to-day Fleet operations and battle plans.
U.S. Pacific Fleet's UxS IBP 21, April 19-26, integrates manned and unmanned capabilities into the most challenging operational scenarios to generate warfighting advantages. For more information on UxS IBP 21, please visit, www.dvidshub.net/feature/IBP21.
