Special Ops Applies Ukraine Lessons to Indo-Pacific | AFCEA

Must Read

U.S. According to Army Col. Ronnie Geronimo, director of Communications (SOJ6) for Special Operations Command Pacific, the command is leveraging the knowledge gained from the conflict between Russia and Ukraine to decide which technology to offer to partner forces in the area.

Col. Geronimo explained to the audience at the AFCEA TechNet Indo-Pacific conference in Honolulu that when he was sent to the Indo-Pacific region four months ago, he was given two tasks. The first was to “discover what Ukraine is doing and communicate externally to the partner forces what they are communicating with,” and the second was to “bring that to the Pacific and figure out how to get that capability to the partner force of choice and make sure that we’re resilient, reliable, and capable of responding quickly to any emergency.” The colonel also underlined the need of solid bonds. “Another lesson from Ukraine is that relationships matter in circumstances where authorities restrict our ability to share information. Your friends and allies are important, right? It’s more of a process than a technology, and it’s this that has proven to be extremely helpful in the ongoing conflict.
