Tighter budgets mean armed forces need to work together

The Joint Chiefs of Staff have issued a new plan called the Joint Operational Access Concept. Marine Corps Lt. Gen. George Flynn, director of joint force development, spoke to The Federal Drive with Tom Temin about what the Joint Operational Access Concept is.
"You have the traditional domains of land, air and sea, and also space," Flynn said. "And we've added the new domain, which is man-made, which is cyber. In order to be able to operate in all those domains, you have to be able to integrate your operations in each of those domains."
What that means is at times land operations may enable sea operations, while maritime operations are enabling air operations and so on, Flynn said.
"What is different about what we think in the future is that integration is no longer going to be limited to a single domain to allow those operations to take place," he said. "But, you're going to have to integrate your efforts across multiple domains, at the same time, and at levels lower than we've done in the past."
