Army to Focus on Space, Cyber Training to Meet Future Soldier Needs

The U.S. Army is increasing its focus on space and cyber training with the release of an official multi-domain operations doctrine.

In October, Field Manual 3-0, Operations, was released to connect all five domains: air, land, sea, space and cyberspace. The document aims to help the military branch maintain a lead over adversaries, including China and Russia, Breaking Defense reported.

Speaking at the I/ITSEC 2023, Brig. Gen. William Glaser, director of the Synthetic Training Environment Cross Functional Team, said the service branch must bring everyone together to come up with innovative solutions that would help in training soldiers in the future demands of battle. He added that the service must prioritize enhancing space and cyber capabilities amid growing challenges.

Glaser’s STE CFT oversees the Army’s key training initiatives. In 2020, the service branch fast-tracked the STE development after it concluded that the existing training environment no longer serves the service’s current and future virtual training requirements.

Its latest effort to advance live environment training is through a collaboration with BAE Systems, Red Hat and The Weather Co. to improve weather data integration into synthetic training environments.
