Army pushes cyber to the battlefield

Army pushes cyber to the battlefield (Govt., Critical Infrastructure)

Army pushes cyber to the battlefield Army Cyber Command plans to put cyber electromagnetic activities, or CEMA, teams on the battlefield and into every brigade combat team, division, corps and Army service component staff starting in June, Army Cyber Commander Lt. Gen. Stephen Fogarty said at the AFCEA Army Signal conference March 13. Within about two years, information warfare specialists will be swapped in for the cyber or EW people to transition to an information warfare cell, Fogarty said. The move is all part of Army Cyber's shifting information operations capabilities from Ft. Belvoir in Virginia to Ft. Gordon, the command's headquarters in Georgia by 2020 and changing the command's name to something along the lines of Army Information Warfare Command by 2028 -- the same year the Army is due to complete its network modernization plan. On the acquisition front, the Army is implementing a new software management system and database to improve acquisitions.
