Back Chair of Warfare Innovation
|Division||Graduate School of Operational & Information Sciences|
Kline, Jeffery E.
|Sponsor||Naval Warfare Development Command (Navy)|
|Summary||This memorandum's purpose is to update the Navy Warfare Development Command (NWDC) Chair of Innovation at the Naval Postgraduate School (NPS). Since 2002 NWDC has leveraged the chair's position to invigorate and conduct research and analysis required to develop doctrine, tactics, techniques, procedures, and joint maritime concept of operations. The chair continues to act as a liaison point for collaborative efforts between NPS research Institutes and Graduate Schools and NWDC. These collaborative efforts continue to provide valuable opportunities for faculty and student professional development at NPS while enhancing NWDC's mission to foster naval innovation. This updated MOU enhances the original MOU by providing the option of establishing a Co-Chair civilian faculty to work in coordination with a Navy Officer as Chair. The Co-Chair would provide longer term continuity between the two organizations.|
