Brig. Gen. Kevin Nally, the Marines Corps CIO, said the service is updating its network hardware and collapsing five unclassified networks into one.
February 13, 2014
Navy officials said Friday that a bid protest to the new Next Generation Enterprise Network contract played a part in once again delaying the transition away from the Navy Marine Corps Intranet, which has been outsourced to an outside vendor for more than a decade.
Marines delay plan to require pullups in female fitness test after half of recruits fail
Director of the Defense Research Projects Agency Director Arati Prabhakar says DARPA's budget wasn't decimated by sequestration, but it is being slowly eroded. The Office of Naval Research and the Marine Corps team up for technology demonstration. John Moniz, ONR program manager, says marines on the front lines can get real-time data using smartphones. At the recent AFCEA Mobile Symposium, Defense Information Systems Agency officials talk about mobile security possibilities.
The Marine Corps is trying to develop ways to automatically push the vast array of intelligence information gathered by military sensors to low-level marines on the battlefield.
After a Pentagon directive "with no escape clause" for all DoD components to migrate to a single email system, Navy and Marine Corps respond by studying the business case for doing so. Officials want to figure out the cost to move to the DISA-run service.
In the military, new programs to mitigate the stress of frequent deployments on servicemembers and their families blossomed everywhere over the past decade. Now that cost is a concern, the Marine Corps is looking for evidence that those programs are effective.
Army and Marine Corps officials are citing cutbacks to the workforce at government-operated facilities that repair military equipment as the reason for less equipment getting back in the hands of warfighters.
2 Marine generals forced to retire for roles in deadly breach of base in Afghanistan
Marines' recruiting website redirected to pro-Assad message
A new study by the Government Accountability Office says the Army and Marine Corps need to develop a set of metrics to better measure the benefits of simulation-based training over live training.
The Department of Defense may have to consider cutting thousands of civilians from its workforce if sequestration continues into fiscal year 2014, according to a Pentagon planning document obtained by Bloomberg News. The workforce reductions would offset a projected $52 billion in automatic spending cuts.
Japan asks US military not to fly helicopters after Okinawa crash; 3 survive and 1 body found
Retired Marine Gen. James "Hoss" Cartwright, a former vice chairman of the Joint Chiefs of Staff, is under investigation for allegedly leaking classified information about a covert cyberattack on Iran's nuclear facilities.
Hewlett Packard, the same vendor which has owned and operated the Navy Department's networks for more than a decade will continue a similar role under a new multibillion dollar contract. But the Navy and Marine Corps will take ownership of their IT infrastructure and reserve the right to recompete any or all of it at a future date.
Pentagon brass calls sexual assault 'like a cancer,' but insists commanders keep authority
The Marine Corps will transition on Saturday to a government-owned, government-operated IT network, ending its 12-year reliance on the Navy-Marine Corps Intranet (NMCI). The Navy said it expects to award the follow-on contract to NMCI by June 30.
Navy CIO Terry Halvorsen says the Navy and Marine Corps have already reduced IT spending by $2 billion, and will soon target billions more in technology spending.
Currently deployed units and those behind them are fully trained and equipped, the services say. But those next in line "aren't doing much." The fiscal 2013 budget also may be too little, too late in some ship repair and maintenance efforts.
The Defense Department's 2014 budget proposal reduces the size of the civilian workforce slightly, increases TRICARE premiums, and requests another round of base closures. It also calls for a slight raise for both civilian employees and uniformed servicemembers. The budget significantly exceeds the Defense spending caps in current law.
