The U.S. Cyber Command has created a Joint Cyber Warfighting Architecture strategy aimed at establishing common firing systems, joint situational awareness platforms, a sensor network and a persistent cyber training environment, Fifth Domain reported Sunday.
As part of the JCWA effort, the command also seeks to establish a Unified Platform, which is aimed at integrating the command“™s disparate systems, and a Joint Cyber Command and Control platform intended for consolidating C2 operations for joint, coalition and interagency groups.
George Franz, cybersecurity lead for the national security business within Accenture“™s federal arm, said Unified Platform will standardize Cybercom and the Defense Information Systems Agency“™s big data operations while allowing forces to promote interoperability by simplifying information sharing and create common tools. The U.S. Air Force plans to allocate research and development funds worth $11.6M for the JCC2 project in fiscal 2020.
“Unified Platform is really that big data infrastructure in the center piece for everything they do,“ Franz said.
