This is a significant move for the Navy to do this. We have also stood up a cyber fleet, the 10th Fleet, that will be the global operator of cyber, and how that feeds and fits and supports the unmanned will be evolving in the coming months, but those were the changes that we have made. You probably didn't expect me to quote Machiavelli at an unmanned systems lecture, but I have a little card on my desk that is a quote from Machiavelli and in it he says that, "Nothing is more difficult to take in hand, more perilous to conduct or more uncertain of its success than to take the lead in the introduction of a new order of things." But this is the right way, this is where we have to go, and it will make us much, much more effective."
