The United States Naval Academy is looking to build a $100 million cyber education center to train midshipmen in conducting cyber warfare, officials announced recently.

While Academy officials have yet to submit a formal proposal to the Navy’s top leaders, the Navy’s demands for trained and skilled cyber professionals coming out of the Academy will necessitate newer and better training facilities, officials told the school’s Board of Visitors.

“We’re the supplier,” said Vice Adm. Jeffrey Fowler, academy superintendent. “What does the customer want to pay for?”

The Center for Cyber Security Studies at the Academy would include laboratories, classroom space and the latest technology and would allow the Academy to train brigade-sized classes. However, despite the presentation of the plans for the new center, which included a mock-up of the new building located at the edge of the Severn River, no formal funding exists for the project.

“No decision or promises have been made by anyone,” according to the Academy’s academic dean Andrew Phillips.
