Warfare Innovation Continuum (WIC) Workshop "Integrated Naval Campaigning"
Each year, the Naval Postgraduate School begins a 12-18 month Warfare Innovation Continuum (WIC) in July, which includes various research projects, capstone class projects, experiments, workshops, and seminars around a central theme of interest to the naval services. This year's WIC, Integrated Naval Campaigning, will explore the confluence of various emerging technologies to enhance the nation's ability to conduct integrated missions in the maritime domain. An integrated naval campaign is a series of operations in, and from, the maritime domain conducted by joint, interorganizational, and allied forces to achieve national strategic and operational objectives. We have numerous past examples of integrated naval campaigning from the amphibious operations of WWII to counter-piracy operations of today. However, we will explore opportunities for new concepts brought on by the robotics age of warfare's contributions to all domains. With one overarching design challenge, seven teams of junior officers and early career engineers will be facilitated through a rapid concept generation process using tools of human-centered design. Each team will present their best concepts on the final morning of the workshop, and these seeds of ideas will inform class projects, thesis work, and research across the NPS campus throughout FY24. We are seeking participants to serve on concept generation teams and as mentors.
