With a unified network, the role of the soldiers in the Army’s Signal Corps will shift from a mission support position to becoming embedded in operations. While Signaleers always will provide the core service of communications to enable a commander, these soldiers also will be supporting maneuver and maneuvering themselves, “and that is a different mindset we need to have,” said Lt. Gen. John Morrison, G-6 and deputy chief of staff, U.S. Army, speaking August 18 during the closing session of AFCEA International’s TechNet Augusta conference in Georgia.
“If you don’t think of yourself as an operator, you are in the wrong business,” the general said. “In the cyberspace domain, it is all about combined arms maneuver. The cyber force has a role to play, and the Signal regiment has a role to play. The EW [electronic warfare] force that is part of our cyber branch has a role to play. With our intel partners underpinning it all.”
