Cybercom to Stand Up New Office for Joint Cyber Warfighting Architecture

The U.S. Cyber Command is establishing a new program executive office to support various programs within the Joint Cyber Warfighting Architecture.

Speaking at a recent C4ISRNET event, Cybercom Acquisition Executive Khoi Nguyen noted that the command has secured authority to ensure better integration and interoperability between the different systems comprising the JCWA, including the U.S. Army’s Joint Common Access Platform and cyber training environment and the U.S. Air Force’s Joint Cyber Command and Control.

Cybercom is setting up the new PEO in collaboration with the Office of the Secretary of Defense’s acquisition and sustainment office and the military services, Federal News Network reported.

Once the new office is operational, the command will focus on securing additional acquisition authority over the JCWA program management shops.

According to Nguyen, being in charge of approving programs of record and acquisition and contracting strategies will enable reducing redundancies in software development and deployment processes.

He said the command plans to use a common Kubernetes platform that program shops will use to deploy their applications in different environments, including within the cloud.
