Taylor Jenkins, a combat engineer with the Littoral Engineer Reconnaissance Team, 9th Engineer Support Battalion, 3d Marine Logistics Group, utilizes the Android Tactical Assault System to input reconnaissance findings into an after action report during a littoral mobility and detection exercise on Camp Pendleton, California, Nov. 18, 2021. The ATAK is a tool that allows Marines to rapidly report critical geospatial information to support intelligence requirements for a given objective. During this exercise, 7th and 9th ESB are refining their skills with emerging Marine Corps technologies in order to facilitate follow-on forces’ littoral mobility from shallow water to the objective.

Think Tank Thursday Helps Workforce Connect and Engage - Think Tank Thursday or ‘T3’ as it’s often referred to by members of the command was an initiative created in May 2022 to showcase all the specialized knowledge, technical skills, and experience throughout the workforce at Marine Corps Tactical Systems Support Activity (MCTSSA). The success of T3 presentations at MCTSSA is a result of detailed coordination and employee engagement which can be difficult at times with scheduling multiple tests, hosting distinguished visitors and performing day-to-day operations. Despite competing time requirements, the program has turned into a staple in the monthly battle rhythm and an engaging way for employees to maximize their contributions to the command which is known for “Making Marines More Capable.” (Graphic design by Amy Forsythe, Public Affairs Officer, MCTSSA)
Navigating Modern Warzones with ENFIRE 9.0 - The Instrument Set, Reconnaissance, and Surveying toolset – or ENFIRE 9.0 – is a tactical engineering tool kit designed to modernize the collection and dissemination of engineer information to help route reconnaissance in combat. In a wartime environment, Marines can use the toolkit to gather and analyze location-based data, such as topography, terrain features, and structures, to plan and execute operations more effectively.
Award-Winning CHAOS Team Harnesses Data to Drive Cyber Innovations - Marine Corps Systems Command has teamed up with Marine Corps Forces Cyberspace Command to field Big Data Platform Cyber Hunt & Analytic Operations System, also known as BDP-CHAOS, a system capable of ingesting hundreds of new data flows and developing situational awareness and common operating pictures for the Joint Cyber Force.
The Corps’ Newest SATCOM Terminal Adds Lethality Through Speed - A satellite communications operator with 9th Communication Battalion, I Marine Expeditionary Force Information Group sets up the Marine Corps Wideband Satellite Communications – Expeditionary, or MCWS-X, aboard Marine Corps Base Camp Pendleton, Calif. Designed to be transported by a single Marine – and set up by that same Marine in less than 15 minutes – the innovative new system allows Marines on the ground to quickly and securely connect to various SATCOM frequencies while providing high throughput rate.
