Sea Dragon 2025 (SD25) addresses how our potential and current adversaries continually innovate and develop new capabilities many of which now equal or exceed our own. This unstable and increasingly dangerous global situation is further complicated by a constrained resource environment. SD25 is the institutionalization of our campaign of learning process, meant to combat these shortcomings and prepare for engagement in the future battle space.
Despite this challenging fiscal environment we must continue current operations, reset our equipment, and maintain our warfighting readiness, while at the same time, innovate and modernize the force. Therefore, it is imperative that we aggressively wargame and experiment with new ways to operate and develop a Marine Corps that retains and improves its warfighting edge.
Sea Dragon Phase I experiments were comprised of studies, wargames, live-force experiments and science and technology assessments all feeding into the overall Campaign of Learning and informing Marine Corps Force 2025.
Marine Corps Force 2025 is a ten-year effort to ensure the MAGTF is postured to address the challenges of the future operating environment. In support of that effort, the CMC directed CD&I to provide an assessment of the Marine Corps Force 2025 Table of Organization and Equipment (T/O&E) of the next generation Marine infantry battalion design while examining the associated impacts to the larger MAGTF.
MCWL will brief the after-action outputs from SD Phase I and based on those after-action outputs; inform SD Phase II experimentation. This assessment conference marks the formal conclusion of SD25 Phase I.
