The MarForPac Experimentation Center (MEC) is an operationally focused center that helps the technical community help the warfighter. The MEC provides venues, tool sets, and coordination planning and execution for exercises, experiments, demonstrations, and military utility assessments. The MEC facilitates access between the technical community and the warfighter allowing the warfighter to provide operational feedback to the Science and Technology and Research and Development process. This feedback allows the technical community to better understand the warfighters’ needs and is obtained with minimal intrusion on the operational forces. The MEC also provides theater security cooperation support in the form of Science and Technology collaboration with Thailand, the Philippines, Singapore, Indonesia and potentially other PACOM areas of responsibility.
