FLTCYBERCOM will be dual-hatted as Commander, TENTH Fleet. Operational control (OPCON) to USCYBERCOM and Administrative control (ADCON) to the Chief of Naval Operations.
FLTCYBERCOM will have its headquarters at Fort George G. Meade, Maryland in close proximity to the National Security Agency.
Service Cryptologic Command (SCC) functions (those previously performed by the Naval Security Group Commander) will transition from NETWARCOM to FLTCYBERCOM.
“Fleet Cyber Command’s mission will be to serve as [the] central operational authority for networks, intelligence, cryptology/signals intelligence, information operations, cyber, electronic warfare and space in support of forces afloat and ashore,” according to the Chief of Naval Operations.
GOOD NEWS on all counts, especially the transfer of SCC functions. Time to reassert ourselves in the NSA arena.
Unlike the other "numbered" Fleets which have specific regional responsibilities, COMTENTHFLT's responsibilities are worldwide and may extend into space.
