Maj. Gen. DeAnna Burt, deputy commander of Space Operations Command, said the U.S. Space Force wants to gather more cyber personnel, National Defense Magazine reported Monday.

USSF is discussing with the U.S. Air Force and U.S. Cyber Command about expanding the former's cyber workforce, Burt said at a Mitchell Institute for Aerospace Studies event. She said USSF needs the expertise to handle the cybersecurity aspects of satellite communications and data networks.

Burt added that the cyber area also presents opportunities to collaborate with the private sector, which has the potential to help USSF characterize enemy behaviors. She said she expects USSF to build the envisioned cyber workforce within three to five years.
