US Navy’s Chief of Naval Operations (CNO) Adm. Jonathan W. Greenert visited Navy Information Operations Command (NIOC) Georgia May 19, and held an all-hands call to discuss the Navy’s role in signals intelligence, information operations and cyber support.
In a full auditorium of NIOC members Greenert highlighted the importance of intelligence in today’s world and the emergence of a new warfare domain. He expressed his high regard for the skills and abilities of NIOC Georgia Sailors and remarked on the highly adaptable nature of NIOC Georgia’s team.
Greenert also discussed the Secretary of the Navy’s recent U.S. Naval Academy speech regarding new personnel initiatives that will modernize the fleet today, and in the coming years.
NIOC Georgia was recently aligned under the newly created type command Navy Information Dominance Forces and is a subordinate of U.S. Fleet Cyber Command. NIOC Georgia is based on Ft. Gordon and comprises Task Force 1050 of the U.S. 10th Fleet. Its mission is to conduct SIGINT, cyber, and information operations for fleet, joint and national commanders that enhance the warfighting effectiveness of our Navy and the nation.
