Rear Adm. Michael Manazir, deputy chief of naval operations for warfare systems, 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.
