The Hybrid Complex Warfare Division (Division 301) is composed of scientist and engineer program officers that run projects aligned along scientific and technical disciplines. Program officers seek the best performers across government laboratories, academia and industry and, in concert with the Concepts and Capabilities Division, focus research investments on the capabilities needed by the expeditionary force. They also discover science opportunities that may lead to a military advantage in a warfighting function, where a concept or requirement has not yet been developed.
The Concepts and Capabilities Division (Division 302) is composed of Marine integration officers (MIO) with technical knowledge and warfighter expertise. Division 302 MIOs address the warfighter function-driven challenges by collaborating with program officers to inform project selection, identify technology areas with the potential to solve military problems, and conduct integrated experiments and demonstrations to inform military stakeholders.
The Expeditionary Maneuver Warfare Department is ready to discuss how military concepts and capabilities interact across research areas that will solve military technology challenges.
