Navy, Marines Wargaming New Gear to Support Emerging Warfare Concepts

:

... Vice Adm. Jim Kilby, the deputy chief of naval operations for warfighting requirements and capabilities ... cited the Naval Integrated Fire Control-Counter Air (NIFC-CA) construct as an example of what the Navy has already done internally. The Standard Missile-6, Cooperative Engagement Capability, Aegis Baseline 9 guided-missile cruiser and the E-2D Advanced Hawkeye aircraft all have different program managers and resource sponsors but need to remain aligned, he said. But now, he wants to bring the Marine Corps into this construct, and perhaps even the Army or Air Force.

only the Coast Guard would be missing in "this construct", LOL

for those who'd ever read that article (nobody will) the acronym "LOCE" isn't defined inside, it's Littoral Operations in a Contested Environment

still I'm struggling to understand the sentence "The NIFSA will also for the first time include new capabilities that the services need to rapidly incorporate, such as unmanned systems and connectors to support the Marine Corps’ Expeditionary Advance Base Operations concept, which falls under LOCE, rather than only include programs of record already in the fleet."

more acronyms undefined in the article:
EABO = Expeditionary Advanced Base Operations
DMO = Distributed Maritime Operations
