From the U.S. Navy: The chief of naval operations (CNO) officially established U.S. Fleet Cyber Command (FCC) and recommissioned U.S. 10th Fleet during a ceremony at Fort George G. Meade, Md., Jan. 29.

At the ceremony, Adm. Gary Roughead, CNO, also named Vice Adm. Bernard J. McCullough III the commander of both FCC and 10th Fleet.

The new FCC and 10th Fleet are headquartered at Fort George G. Meade, taking advantage of existing Naval Network Warfare Command infrastructure, communications support and personnel already in place…

“[Tenth Fleet] had a global responsibility to protect American forces and American trade. It was a command who success depended less on manned and massed fire power than on intelligence and information,” he [Adm. Roughead] said. “Today, we recommission this fleet to confront a new challenge to our nation’s security in cyberspace. It is a mission for which, even more so than before, victory will be predicated on intelligence and information rather than fire power.” (photo: Tiffini Jones Vanderwyst/U.S Navy), via
