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.  In support of that effort, Sea Dragon Phase I

experiments started in October 2016 with 3/5's ITX and culminated with

Talisman Saber and CERTEX in August 2017.  After-action outputs from phase I

included: implementing an assistant squad leader, squad size and structure,

employing small unmanned aerial systems (SUAS) down to the squad level, and

unmanned ground vehicles (UGV).  IOT conclude SD25 Phase I, MCWL will host

the SD25 Phase I Assessment Conference to discuss the outputs from phase I

experimentation while informing phase II experimentation.  



Discuss after-action points, inform phase II experimentation, and make recommendations for the Marine Corps' future force development.
