From Jim Garrettson, Executive Mosaic President & Founder
Modern technology and information networks have brought new players into warfare and given them the opportunity to cause worldwide disruption, says a new report co-authored by CACI International and the Center for Security Policy.
“This report illustrates the inextricable link between offense and defense — and the struggle our nation faces in devising strategies that translate battlefield success into desired political results and lasting strategic advantages,” said Jack London, (right) CACI’s executive chairman and longtime stalwart.
Peter Daly (left), the Naval Institute‘s CEO and a retired vice admiral, says the idea of hitting enemies when they are weak has been around for a long time but the nature of those actions has radically changed.
“What is new is the modern world’s degree of globalization and interconnection, and the speed and reach of attacks in arenas far beyond the battlefield,” the former deputy Fleet Command head says.

The Navy has this year alone awarded three contracting vehicles worth nearly $900 million each for C5ISR technologies and services, with one awarded to 14 contractors in April, another handed to 15 firms in May, and one awarded to 13 companies in July.
