Navy Tests new Global Command Architecture

The US Navy also participated in JEFX 08-3, testing elements of its future Maritime Headquarters concept with Maritime Operations Center (MHQ with MOC) supporting the planning, execution, and assessment stages of operations. The Navy's participation focused mainly on its ability to interact with MOC and other operation centers around - such as the US Air Force Air Operation Centers (AOCs). These new formations are designed to streamline processes and communications at the naval operational level between fleet and naval component commands. Through these facilities, the Navy plans to establish a global network of maritime headquarters that will be in constant communication with each other and able to consistently and quickly transition from peace time operations to combat, humanitarian relief, or other operations as required.
