Mission Command Cyber

Description

Mission Command Cyber (MC Cyber) designs, develops and deploys cyber capabilities to the Army to establish cyber operational overmatch. MC Cyber delivers capabilities to corps and brigades at the tactical edge that allow warfighters to understand and depict cyberspace while defending friendly key cyber terrain.

MC Cyber’s agile acquisition and integration processes achieve both near- and long-term capability development to ensure dominance in the cyber battlefield.

Capabilities

  • Tactical Defensive (Cyberspace Operations) Infrastructure (TDI): Cyberspace defenders have the need to locally and remotely protect friendly tactical cyber terrain, maneuver in and across tactical enclaves, and counter cyber adversaries to ensure the reliability of critical tasks and services. TDI addresses this need by pre-positioning DCO tools onto dedicated computer and storage resources residing at echelons corps and below. The TDI system is physically and logistically con-verged with the Tactical Server Infrastructure (TSI) to minimize size, weight, and power (SWaP) requirements in a tactical operations center (TOC) or tactical command post (TAC).
  • Cyber Situational Understanding (Cyber SU): Cyber SU ingests data from multiple Army programs of record to enables visualization, analysis, and understanding of cyber and electromagnetic activities.  This understanding, coupled with the ability to deploy this information in the common operating environment through Command Post Computing Environment software, facilitates informed planning, timely decision making, and mission accomplishment in the cyber-contested operating environment.
