Brig. Gen. William Cole, program executive officer for simulation, training and instrumentation at the U.S. Army, has said that the service branch will launch a project to construct a new cyber training range for offensive and defensive network operations, National Defense Magazine reported Wednesday.
Yasmin Tadjdeh writes Cole added the persistent cyber training environment program aims to train network operators of the Army Cyber Command and U.S. Cyber Command together.
Construction is underway on the service branch’s new cyber headquarters in Georgia.
The report said the Army sought industry’s input on possible technical, cost and schedule requirements for the persistent cyber training environment.
Cole noted that service branch also plans to invest in a tactical combat casualty care system designed to help soldiers train on how to treat wounds, according to the report.
