PEARL HARBOR, Hawaii - Adm. Scott Swift, commander of U.S. Pacific Fleet (PACFLT), delivered opening remarks to more than 250 personnel during the Sea of Dreams Expo held at Joint Base Pearl Harbor-Hickam March 12.

Sea of Dreams, a PACFLT-led event, is focused on encouraging dialogue, fostering innovation and providing a better understanding of current and future challenges faced in the area of responsibility.

“The significance of bringing together program offices, industry representatives, and fleet operators cannot be overstated,” said Swift. “By gaining a shared understanding of the Pacific Fleet operating environment, we can proceed together with the involved organizations towards solutions that incorporate strategic thought, operational understanding, and tactical execution.”

Those in attendance included individuals from the Department of Defense warfare centers, program managers, government officials, university research centers, laboratories, academia, developers, program managers, and industry.

The Sea of Dreams will conclude March 13.
