Definition of Composite warfare commander

Composite warfare commander Definition from Government Dictionaries & Glossaries
DOD Dictionary of Military Terms
The officer in tactical command is normally the composite warfare commander. However the composite warfare commander concept allows an officer in tactical command to delegate tactical command to the composite warfare commander. The composite warfare commander wages combat operations to counter threats to the force and to maintain tactical sea control with assets assigned; while the officer in tactical command retains close control of power projection and strategic sea control operations.
