AUGUSTA, GA: In a few years, cyber warriors in the U.S. military will use a single new platform to deliver Electronic firepower over the network for offensive cyber operations.

By fiscal year 2024, U.S. Cyber ​​Command’s service network components will migrate to the Joint Common Access Platform (JCAP), which will provide the infrastructure for these offensive missions. Service cyber forces will move from the separate tools they now use to firing platforms, more closely linking their operations in cyberspace, one of the areas the U.S. military is trying to protect as a joint force.

“In FY24, we intend to adopt all traditional QRCs in these capabilities [快速反应能力] components, retire them, and move them to JCAP,” Willie Utroska, deputy manager of the Electronic Warfare and Cyber ​​Program in the Intelligence Electronic Warfare Division of the U.S. Army Program Executive Office, said last week on TechNet Augusta. “24 Fiscal 2019 is our goal to phase out current offensive cyber tools.”

He added that the U.S. Army is developing the tool for Cyber ​​Command, which will deploy about four Joint Mission Operations Commands, and the U.S. Army, Air Force and Marine Corps have signed memorandums of understanding so far.

Late last year, the U.S. Department of Defense awarded ManTech a $265 million contract to support the program for 3.5 years. The software tool is part of U.S. Cyber ​​Command’s Joint Cyber ​​Operations Architecture and is used to guide major acquisitions.

Utroska explained that the U.S. Army plans to conduct a series of minimum viable capability drops, incremental capability insertions that will build on each other, with the seventh planned for FY24 migration.

AUGUSTA, Ga. — In a couple years, cyber warriors in the military branches will use a single, new platform to deliver Electronic fires over networks for offensive operations.

By fiscal 2024, service cyber components under US Cyber ​​Command will migrate to the Joint Common Access Platform, which will provide the infrastructure for those offensive missions. The service cyber units will move to the firing platform from separate tools they operate now, more tightly linking their efforts in cyberspace, one of the domains the military is trying to protect as a joint force.

“In FY24 we intend to take all the legacy QRC [quick reaction capability] components of those capabilities, sunset them and then move to JCAP,” Willie Utroska, deputy project manager for electronic warfare and cyber at Army Program Executive Office Intelligence, Electronic Warfare and Sensors, said last week at TechNet Augusta. “FY24 is our target to sunset the current offensive cyber tools.”

The tool, which the Army is developing for Cyber ​​Command and the larger military, will deploy around four joint mission operation commands, he added, with memorandums of understanding signed so far by the Army, Air Force and Marine Corps.

Late last year, the Defense Department awarded ManTech a $265 million contract to support the program over 3 ? years. The software tool is part of Cyber ​​Command’s Joint Cyber ​​Warfighting Architecture, which guides major acquisitions.

The Army plans a series of minimum viable capability drops, incremental capability insertions that will build on each other, Utroska explained, with the seventh planned for the FY24 migration.
