The Future of War, and How It Affects YOU (Multi-Domain Operations) - Smarter Every Day 211

  • Published: 03 March 2019
  • It's a strange feeling to share this aspect of my life. I'm taking a break to go back to school, but here's a peek into the part of my life I've kept hidden from the internet for many years. I was asked if I wanted to film my last mission and use it as an opportunity to explain "Multi-Domain Operations" to the public. After much consideration, I decided that this topic (especially the cyber-domain issue) was important and chose to help inform the public.

    My mission was to participate in a missile and torpedo engagement exercise at Pacific Missile Range Facility as part of RIMPAC 2018. RIMPAC (Rim of the Pacific Exercise) is the largest naval exercise in the world. It's used to test interoperability and the ability to work as an international force.

    I was invited to discuss multi-domain operations with General Brown:

    Where we performed the exercise

    We fired the Norwegian Naval Strike Missile

    JGSDF Fires Surface-to-Ship Missile during RIMPAC SINKEX

    For the last 15 years I have worked for the Army Test Evaluation Command. My favorite thing about ATEC is that our motto is simply "Truth".

    I served for 15 years as a Department of the Army Federal Civil Servant at The Redstone Test Center.

    I've kept this side of my life off the internet intentionally for 15 years. It's been strange being a dual YouTuber/Missile Tester, because obviously this side of my life feels very important and the main driver for many of my life decisions. I'm more than just a person who makes videos and puts them on YouTube, and I feel like I'm kind of introducing you to the other side of me with this video. I thought long and hard about putting this online after I was asked if I wanted to film my last mission. I ultimately decided to post this video to let you know that Multi-Domain Operations are real.... and you're in the cyber domain. I didn't understand the full extent of what the implications of this were until I dug into it more. Over the course of the next several videos we're going to explore these cyber issues in a very real way. I hope you'll explore this with me.

        And people think it's weird that I'm tired of new versions of products that already exist without being connected to the internet lol gotta get less wrapped up in the IOT and have more humman connections than wifi and bluetooth because the internet isn't always 100% safe. Also, make sure you have strong passwords and take fewer risks on the internet in general :)

              I'm a big JBP fan and he mentions that humans see the world as a psychological landscape. Cyber/social attacks fit right into that. I love that you were able to share this.

                26:00 is extremely relevant to the conflict in Hong Kong, specifically on Reddit. Mainland Chinese frequently and overwhelmingly downvote the r/HongKong subreddit in hopes of preventing it from reaching a larger audience.

                        On CNN? I would not trust information dissemination to just that one network - I would do all of them - especially if the message is important. That means ALL the news channels - then throw in YouTube - and then BitChute (why not).

                          You made me google "Tinfoil-hattery"... you really do get smarter everyday.. and General Brown just basically issued a statement "come at me bro".. This is one of my favorite videos, not on just on your channel but on youtube.

                              ‘Multidomain operations’ the old problem, especially for the US army. How to get the army, navy, airforce to stop quarreling over budgets and prestige and just to get the job done. Why can’t the mighty US army win a rather medieval war in Afghanistan? Be honest to yourself. The British Empire, USSR couldn’t either, it broke them apart, finally. Are the Afghani’s too multidomain?

I also believe the greatest threat we face is internal and not external. There are many Nations and groups that constantly try to tear the US apart or try and remake it in their way. The internet is a prime tool for that. But they will all fail as long as US citizens don't forget their founding and where they came from.

System is rotten and it works just for rich people only and not for people on minimal wages that can’t thrive but only barely survive on them. Middle class is shrinking rapidly and going bankrupt with every major health problem in their family while private health corporations is profiting on their misery.

It is somewhat sad to see how many people have lost the spirit. i wonder what we can do to bring that spirit back without causing extra civil conflict
