Last week, Brig. Gen. Paul T. Stanton, commander of the U.S. Army Cyber Center of Excellence, announced that the service branch intends to update its cyber operations doctrine as it continues to transition toward a more data-driven collaborative environment.
This update will allow the service to integrate its cyber operations mission into the larger vision of a modernized Army. Lt. Gen. Ted Martin, commander of the Army Combined Arms Center, said that “The doctrine, which stems from the National Defense Strategy of 2018, will continually evolve to keep pace with new technology and help the Army increase its lethality against near-peer threats.”
This announcement aligns with the mission and projects emerging from NUARI’s Defense Technologies Research Institute (DTRI).
The DTRI was established to leverage technology as a significant enabler to enhance performance on a complex, asymmetrical battlefield. Our SME’s provide a unique link between the current user and the private sector provider of emerging technologies.
The DTRI promotes research and development of advanced man-portable systems in the areas of visual augmentation, sensors, mobility equipment, communications and information assurance, and force protection by seeking to adopt, adapt, or modify existing or new technologies that provide expanded capabilities to U.S. forces.
We are encouraged by this news as it is NUARI’s mission to enable a resilient society through rapid research, development, and education in cybersecurity, defense technologies, and information warfare.
