Army Unveils New Strategy to Secure Multi-Domain Communications

The U.S. Army has unveiled a data strategy that seeks to equip soldiers with modern technology platforms designed to help them manage and secure communications against cybersecurity threats.

The service branch said Monday it developed the Network Path Forward concept as part of efforts to train warfighters on how to communicate, maneuver and engage targets acrossair, land, sea, space and cyber domains.

The strategy calls for the development of an agile and mobile communications system that would aid the military branch in multi-domain battle.

Gen. Mark Milley, the Army’s chief of staff, will provide more information about the Network Path Forward plan at the Association of the U.S. Army symposium on Tuesday.

The Army also seeks to examine the potential of multiple products and services from industry to address network requirements at the strategic and tactical command levels.
