Then-INDOPACOM Chief ADM Philip Davidson has emphasized his command's requirements for new and augmented missile, air defense, radar, and long-range precision fire systems; expeditionary airfield, port, and logistics facilities; and other dedicated assets and capabilities to be based and deployed throughout the region.
