To maintain the capability to conduct large-scale amphibious operations in hostile environments, the JFMCC s command and control method must enable the closest cooperation between functional activities occurring simultaneously across multiple warfare domains. The existing command and control methods for amphibious operations must be reexamined to support the JFMCC s ability to fight in the 21st Century operational environment. This paper will examine and recommend for the JFMCC a command and control method to achieve the closest cooperation between disparate functional warfare domains in support of a brigade-size landing during a major operation. With the integration of a functional amphibious warfare commander, the command and control method defined by composite warfare CWC doctrine, will provide the JFMCC the optimal command and control method to support large-scale amphibious operations against increasingly hostile littoral regions.
