ABSTRACT

Cross Domain IW Threats to SOF Maritime Missions: Implications for U.S. SOF   [open pdf - 4MB]

From the Introduction: "United States Special Operations Command (USSOCOM) has identified several emerging threats to U.S. Special Operations Forces (SOF). These include, but are not limited to strategic sabotage, vulnerability to missile attacks, and innovative uses of technology by state and non-state competitors. These threats highlight the importance for Special Operations Forces (SOF) to maintain the competitive advantage in support of U.S. Navy irregular warfare (IW), especially across globally contested domains, such as coastal and near-coastal environments. [...] This report will explore and identify maritime cyber threats that promote or enable IW [irregular warfare] vectors that can negatively impact naval activities within the scope of USSOCOM [United States Special Operations Command]. Moreover, this monograph integrates both the maritime and the cyber domains of warfare."
