Mike chats with the Naval War College


Posted: Oct 2, 2008

Mike Treder reports: Tomorrow I’ll be spending the afternoon with a select group of U.S. Navy captains being groomed for admiralty at the Naval War College in Newport, Rhode Island. This is the third year in a row I’ve been invited to meet with members of the Chief of Naval Operations Strategic Studies Group (SSG), which “generates revolutionary naval warfare concepts.”

Our three-hour presentation and discussion this year will be divided into three parts: Accelerating Change, Nanofactory Technology, and Military and Security Implications.

According to the SSG web page: “Revolutionary implies that the concepts would upset the existing order. . . The SSG focuses its efforts on warfighting concepts that appear to have great potential, but Navy organizations are currently not pursuing. “
