SPAWAR commander releases 2016 strategic plan

Story by Tina Stillions
SAN DIEGO - In support of his seven-year vision launched last year, Space and Naval Warfare Systems Command (SPAWAR) Commander Rear Adm. David Lewis released his strategic execution plan 2016 on Friday, Jan. 22.

Outlining SPAWAR's role as the Navy’s cyber systems command, the strategic plan aligns closely with the CNO’s revised “Cooperative Strategy for the 21st Century,” an imperative to strengthening naval sea power and global information warfare systems, creating a “top-down” effort in which everybody must contribute.
