GENTEXT/RMKS/l. THE "MARINE AIR GROUND TASK FORCE (MAGTF) CYBERSPACE AND ELECTRONIC WARFARE COORDINATION CELL (CEWCC) CONCEPT" LAYS THE FOUNDATION FOR HOW THE MARINE CORPS WILL CONTINUE TO OPERATIONALIZE THE CYBERSPACE DOMAIN AND THE ELECTROMAGNETIC SPECTRUM (EMS) AS INTERRELATED MANEUVER SPACES THROUGH WHICH MILITARY ADVANTAGE CAN BE GAINED OR LOST. CYBERSPACE IS DEFINED AS AN OPERATIONAL DOMAIN ON PAR WITH THE TRADITIONAL DOMANDS OF LAND, AIR, MARITIME AND SPACE.  WHILE CYBERSPACE IS RECEIVING SIGNIFICANT ATTENTION, IT IS ESSENTIAL FOR MARINES TO UNDERSTAND THAT THIS NEW MAN-MADE DOMAIN CAN ONLY BE LEVERAGED FOR MAXIMUM TACTICAL ADVANTAGE WHEN EMS-DEPENDENT CAPABILITIES ARE COMBINED WITH CYBERSPACE CAPABILITIES TO SUPPORT MAGTF OPERATIONS.
2. CYBERSPACE AND THE EMS ARE INTERCONNECTED AND EXIST ACROSS THE OPERATIONAL ENVIRONMENT. THIS RELATIONSHIP REQUIRES MAGTF COMMANDERS AND THEIR STAFFS TO PLAN FOR AND EXECUTE CYBERSPACE AND EMS-ENABLED CAPABILITIES HOLISTICALLY; EMPLOYING THEM IN VARIOUS COMBINATIONS ACROSS THE OPERATIONAL ENVIRONMENT IN SUPPORT OF MANEUVER ELEMENTS AND ALL WARFIGHTING FUNCTIONS AND MISSIONS. TO ACHIEVE MAGTF INTEGRATION, THE MARINE CORPS IS INVESTING HEAVILY TO INCREASE CYBERSPACE AND ELECTRONIC WARFARE EXPERTISE AND CAPACITY. MAGTF PLANNERS MUST INCORPORATE THESE CAPABILITIES AS INHERENT ELEMENTS OF OPERATIONAL DESIGN AND MISSION EXECUTION. WHEN THIS IS ACCOMPLISHED, THE MAGTF WILL BE IN A SITUATION TO CREATE AND EXPLOIT MORE OPPORTUNITIES FOR ADVANTAGE ACROSS ALL DOMAINS AND DIMENSIONS OF THE OPERATIONAL ENVIRONMENT.
3. THE CEWCC COORDINATES THE INTEGRATED PLANNING, EXECUTION AND ASSESSMENT OF CYBERSPACE AND EMS ACTIONS ACROSS THE MAGTF'S OPERATIONAL ENVIRONMENT IN ORDER TO INCREASE OPERATIONAL TEMPO AND ACHIEVE ADVANTAGE. THE CEWCC IS PART OF THE MAGTF SOLUTION TO HOLISTICALLY PLAN, COORDINATE AND SYNCHRONIZE THESE COMPLEX CAPABILITIES ACROSS THE STAFF SECTIONS AND RANGE OF MILITARY OPERATIONS. THUS, IT HAS BECOME CRITICAL FOR COMMANDERS TO BEGIN IMPLEMENTING THE PRINCIPLES AND TASKS CONTAINED WITHIN THIS CONCEPT.
4. WIDEST DISSEMINATION OF THIS DOCUMENT ACROSS THE MARINE CORPS IS DIRECTED.
