Sea-Air-Space: The Navy League’s Global Maritime Exposition is the nation’s largest military maritime show with over 250 exhibitors and a Department of the Navy-approved conference.

Listen to the interviews Federal News Radio conducted with senior military leaders and read our articles below.

  • The Defense Department plans to have 133 cyber mission teams at full operational capability by the end of 2018. Of those, 40 are in the Navy. But the Navy says achieving that milestone would take a team effort. It’s not just a mission for the 10th Fleet, its cyber command. On Federal Drive with Tom Temin, Vice Adm. Jan Tighe, commander of the 10th fleet, spoke with Federal News Radio’s Jared Serbu at the Sea Air Space expo at the Gaylord National Convention Center, in National Harbor, Maryland.

  • Vice Adm. Ted Branch is now the Chief of Information Warfare instead of the Chief of Information Dominance. On Federal Drive with Tom Temin, Branch spoke with Federal News Radio’s Jared Serbu at the Sea Air Space expo at the Gaylord National Convention Center, in National Harbor, Maryland, about what the switch to “information warfare” means for the broader Navy.

  • From fighters to carriers to submarines, the Navy wants to network its weapons systems so their warfighting capability is greater than the sum of its parts. That task falls to Rear Adm. Michael Manazir, who was appointed just last week as the deputy chief of naval operations for warfare systems. Before that, he was director of the Navy’s Air Warfare Division. Manazir spoke on Federal Drive with Tom Temin to Federal News Radio’s Jared Serbu at the Sea Air Space expo at the Gaylord National Convention Center, in National Harbor, Maryland.

  • Federal Drive with Tom Temin interviews military commanders and agency leaders at the 2016 Sea-Air-Space Expo.

  • The Coast Guard is midway through its biggest capital overhaul in a half century. But it will need the right people to man the new ships and carry out its 21st century missions. Adm. Paul Zukunft, Commandant of the Coast Guard, joins Federal Drive with Tom Temin at the Sea Air Space expo at the Gaylord National Convention Center, in National Harbor, Maryland, to discuss the new Coast Guard human capital plan.

  • The Navy is trying to “revolutionize” the meals it feeds its sailors, both ashore and while they’re underway. To do that, they turned to sailors themselves, and to academia, using the “design thinking process” to help shape the future of the Navy’s chow. On Federal Drive with Tom Temin, Lt. Cmdr. Keith Capper, director of the Navy Food Service, and Jennifer Person-Whippo, a dietician in the Navy Supply Systems Command, talked with Federal News Radio’s Jared Serbu at the Sea Air Space expo at the Gaylord National Convention Center, in National Harbor, Maryland.

  • It’s the Navy’s job to protect American interests anywhere on the globe. That job is quite a bit different than it was in the Cold War, when the nation had different strategic and budget priorities. Adm. John Richardson is seven months into his post as Chief of Naval Operations. Richardson joins Federal Drive with Tom Temin at the Sea Air Space expo at the Gaylord National Convention Center, in National Harbor, Maryland.

  • Technological superiority has always been an important advantage for the U.S. armed forces. Leading technology starts with research. For the Navy, research is the purview of Dr. John Burrow, deputy assistant Secretary of the Navy for Research, Development, Test and Evaluation. He spoke to Federal Drive with Tom Temin at the Sea Air Space expo at the Gaylord National Convention Center, in National Harbor, Maryland.

  • The armed forces rely heavily on the U.S. merchant marine to ship supplies and equipment. That’s where the Transportation Department’s Maritime Administration comes in. Maritime Administrator Paul Jaenichen talks to Federal Drive with Tom Temin at the Sea Air Space expo at the Gaylord National Convention Center, in National Harbor, Maryland.
