What is the PSCM?
• The Pacific Senior Communicators Meeting (PSCM) is an
annual gathering of the senior military communication
professionals from each of the PE participant nations
• The PSCM serves a two-fold purpose
– Provide a venue to discuss and address Asia-Pacific strategic and
operational C4 matters in a multinational forum
– Serve as a MCIP senior steering committee that provides guidance on
the objectives and concept for the upcoming year’s MCIP cycle and
PACIFIC ENDEAVOR capstone event

The PSCM and PE
• Benefits of scheduling the PSCM in concert with PE
– Enables senior communicators to witness PE and provide
guidance for the following year’s PE operational concept
– Affords senior communicators access to experts from International
Organizations, NGOs, academia and industry
– Exposes senior communicators to emerging technologies from
industry and enables them to guide future systems development by
relaying challenges and strategic context
