Vice Adm. Joseph Mulloy Offers Latest Menneken Lecture for USW Students

By MC1 Lewis Hunsaker

Vice Adm. Joseph P. Mulloy, Deputy Chief of Naval Operations for Integration of Capabilities and Resources, presents the latest Menneken Lecture to NPS undersea warfare (USW) students and faculty in the Mechanical and Aerospace Engineering Auditorium, March 9. Mulloy discussed the importance of USW and how it fits into an ever-changing world.

"Undersea warfare is an area where we definitely have an edge. But any edge you have in life can be eroded very quickly … from the theft of ideas, copying of ideas, or simply stealing technology," said Mulloy.

Maintaining that edge requires resources, Mulloy noted, and the Navy has had to balance several priorities under the constant pressure of austere budgets. While he has high hopes there may be some relief in future budgeting cycles, Mulloy cautioned that whatever relief is provided will still need to be balanced across every domain the Navy operates in.

"My concern as the N8 is across the entire Navy. I may be focused on USW today because I just happen to be briefing undersea warfare students," he said.

Mulloy concluded his discussion by reminding the students in attendance that they represent one of the service's most important resources.

"Students here at NPS are part of the next Navy, and they need to use their experience, ideas and technology to advance the service," Mulloy said. "Everything in the Navy should be a node that provides accurate data back to fleet commanders for decisions.

"It's a joy visiting NPS," he continued. "It's refreshing to get out of the Pentagon, see these bright young people, fabulous instructors, and a great school where we can think about the future of the Navy."
