Dual-use commercial small craft await inspection during the Marine Forces Reserve and Defense Innovation Unit Small Boat Evaluation and Demonstration event on Nov. 2, 2022, at the 4th Assault Amphibian Battalion headquarters in Tampa, Florida. This second phase of the DIU Commercial Solutions Opening process is used to determine which vessel(s) will be used by the Marine Corps Reserve in support of Service-level experimentation for Force Design 2030. MFR plans to use Congressionally-approved National Guard and Reserve Equipment Appropriation (NGREA) funds to purchase the initial order of expeditionary craft. Use of this funding will not impact MFR’s annual budget, nor will it hinder or delay any other areas of operations or innovation across the force. - Dual-use commercial small craft await inspection during the Marine Forces Reserve and Defense Innovation Unit Small Boat Evaluation and Demonstration event on Nov. 2, 2022, at the 4th Assault Amphibian Battalion headquarters in Tampa, Florida.
