A group within Air Force Life Cycle Management Center has opened a $1.5 million facility to help the military boost cybersecurity across the service’s weapon systems. AFLCMC’s Fighters and Bombers Directorate held a ribbon-cutting ceremony at Wright-Patterson Air Force Base to open the new cyber defense facility, the U.S. Air Force said Monday.
The facility will offer space for collaborative work between cyber technology procurement experts for studies on existing and emerging threats. USAF’s Cyber Resiliency Office for Weapons Systems contributed funds and expertise to deliver the facility.
“Construction of this facility is a key component of the CROWS mission to increase the cyber resiliency of Air Force weapon systems and maintain mission effective capability,” said Joseph Bradley, director of CROWS. CROWS plans to build more cyber facilities across different centers in the next five years.
