The Cyber Systems and Operations Group focuses on enabling full-scope DoD, IC, and civilian government operations within the cyber domain and across traditional mission domains and sensing layers. Our focus is research and development of systems providing situational awareness (SA) and command and control (C2) in the cyber domain. Key technology development thrusts include novel sensors, actuators, sense-making, decision support, knowledge representation, Human Machine Interface (HMI), visualization, automated planning, and cloud-based information sharing architectures. We integrate these capabilities into secure, resilient, cost-effective information sharing architectures in support of effective mission operations. Group strengths include software development, significant testbed infrastructure, and connections to challenges, people, systems and data from multiple operational communities. Overall, we seek to leap ahead of evolving cyber threats and enable comprehensive and secure use of the cyber domain.
