Abstract:

The tragic events of 11 September have drastically altered the way the United States assesses the security of the global environment. The fact that we may be attacked again on our own soil, anywhere, at any time, with any type of weapon is now a permanent thought in our nations collective conscience. Now, it is more difficult to predict potential sources of military threats, the conduct of future wars, and the form that threats and attacks will take. We now face a new enemy known as terrorists and terrorist networks. Those facts coupled with the war in Iraq, compel us to look to our partners in industry for thoughts and break-through ideas. With the Transformation Guidance and Sea Power 21st Century emphasis on expeditionary maneuver warfare, Seabasing and the Joint Warfighting Concepts, we will aggressively participate in the development of technology to meet those goals. The United States Marines have always been known as the worlds preeminent expeditionary troops. Coupled with our partners in industry, using science and technology, research and development, our nation will again have the peace we all desire. With those thoughts in mind the MCSC will be hosting an Advanced Planning Briefing to Industry Day April 13-14, 2006, at the Marriott Baltimore Waterfront Hotel, Baltimore, Maryland. The MCSC has not had an Industry Day since 2003, therefore this will be a very informative and diverse meeting that no one will want to miss.
