PM Defensive Cyber Operations Introduces New Programs to Enhance Army’s Cyber Capabilities

The U.S. Army’s Program Manager Defensive Cyber Operations has introduced two new programs to help the service improve its cybersecurity and information-sharing capabilities.

PM DCO announced the Cyber Platforms and Systems and the Cyber Analytics and Detection programs, which Robert Zoppa, project manager for DCO, said would help with the Army’s information dominance and decision-making capabilities. The CPS program focuses on the procurement and delivery of cyber platforms and tools for the Armed Forces while the CAD program provides capabilities that help soldiers analyze and detect external and internal cyber threats.

The CPS program would focus on a tool suite that gives warfighters the ability to maneuver across the cyber terrain, protect the DOD information network and support cyber protection team missions. The CAD program focuses on software-based applications that support command, planning, integration, analysis and execution at all levels.

The new programs were announced as PM DCO joins the Program Executive Office Intelligence, Electronic Warfare and Sensors, the Army said.

The new programs build on the Army’s efforts to improve its cybersecurity capabilities and understanding.

In August, the Army Cyber Center of Excellence announced that it is halfway through a four-month study to test its solutions. According to Cyber CoE senior intelligence adviser David May, the study would give the service an idea of what cyber responsibilities would fall under its purview and how much it would cost to sustain them.
