Are the US military services in sync for net-enabled warfare?

It might seem as if the Army's strategy for tackling hybrid threats and the Air Force and Navy doctrine for AirSea Battle go off in different directions at a time when strategic synthesis is sorely needed in light of shrinking defense funding, but on further reflection they make a good deal of sense and fit together logically, military experts informed Sydney J. Freedberg Jr. at AOL Defense blog

Simply put, hybrid threats refers to a tight mix of guerrilla tactics and high-tech weapons that pose a way to address assymetrical warfare on land, while AirSea Battle serves as a way to coordinate the large weapons platforms used by the Air Force and Navy in a high-tech war with regional powers such as China or Iran, the story said.

"AirSea Battle is basically the outer half of the problem: How do you get into a region," (ret.) Marine Frank Hoffman, told the media outlet. "The inner half [is] once you get inside a region, how can you operate" in the face of hybrid threats.
