INDOPACOM Chief ADM Philip Davidson has stated 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.
