Maj. Gen. John Morrison: CEMA Units Integrate with Brigades from Other Specialties

Maj. Gen. John Morrison, commander of the Cyber Center of Excellence and Fort Gordon, has said cyber-electromagnetic activities have begun to routinely operate alongside brigades from other domain specialties at combat training centers and home-station training environments.

The U.S. Army said Monday Morrison noted CEMA teams have merged with cyber, electronic warfare, military intelligence, signals intelligence and space specialists to provide capacities for the maneuver commander.

Morrison believes integration of capacities and formations can help establish a combined arms effect within the cyberspace.

George Lewis, vice president of CEMA initiatives at CACI International, suggested CEMA teams to work with the industry and academia to discover procedures, tactics, techniques and technologies that can support operations.

The report noted EW personnel will begin to support the newly established Cyber Branch and mobile training teams will be deployed across the Army to lay the foundations for full integration.

Brig. Gen. Neil Hersey, commandant of the Army Cyber Center and School, said a school at Fort Gordon utilized Soldiers from different CEMA specialties to support its program of instruction as well as help improve the training and education of the students.

The report said the cyber and intelligence centers of excellence have also worked together to develop a recent cyber requirement and the special operations CoE has the potential to work with a CEMA team on the formulation of future requirements.
