Title Regional SOF Coordination Center: An Indo-Asia-Pacific Approach.
Publication Date Apr 2013
Media Count 38p
Personal Author P. J. Don
Abstract The U.S. President's strategic directive and focus on addressing the challenges and opportunities in the Indo-Asia-Pacific region, reinforced by DoD's strategic guidance, warrants an innovative approach and a new organizational construct to assist in aligning objectives and harmonizing activities in a joint, interagency, and multinational environment within the region. A Regional SOF Coordination Center (RSCC) will afford the U.S. a capability and venue to provide multinational SOF and security force education and training, enhance coordination, collaboration and interoperability, and establish new security partnerships, while reinforcing key regional security alliances to address the current and future threats, challenges, and opportunities within the Indo-Asia-Pacific arena. This paper will review and evaluate the RSCC concept and provide a recommended approach for establishing an RSCC for the Indo-Asia-Pacific region.
