Defense Digital Service Aims to Facilitate Cyber Tech Development via New Workspace in Georgia

The Defense Department’s digital service team has unveiled a new workspace in Augusta, Ga., to allow service personnel and civilians to work together on cyber capabilities.

DoD said Thursday the Tatooine workspace marks the expansion of Defense Digital Service’s partnership with Army Cyber Command on a pilot program that seeks to support and cultivate technical talent within ARCYBER through collaboration with DDS’ tech professionals with industry experience.

“Tatooine will be a beacon for technical talent across the military – a place to write code and solve problems of impact,” said Chris Lynch, DDS director.

Through the new workspace, DDS experts and soldiers will take part in pilot programs that aim to detect cyber threat actors on DoD networks, redesign training for cyber military personnel and develop systems designed to detect hostile drones.

Tatooine at Georgia Cyber Center will provide pilot teams a space to collaborate and support other technical programs such as the Civilian Hiring as a Service Pilot and the Hack the Army bug bounty initiative.
