1 min read

Schuyler Moore, former director of science and technology for the Defense Innovation Board, has joined U.S. Central Command to serve as its first chief technology officer.

In her new role, Moore will be responsible for overseeing the overall technology innovation functions at the unified combatant command, USCENTCOM said Tuesday.

Moore most recently served as chief strategy officer at Task Force 59, a newly launched U.S. Naval Forces Central Command task force dedicated to integrating unmanned systems into the 5th Fleet area of operations.

During her tenure at the DIB, Moore provided recommendations on the military uses of artificial intelligence, biotechnology and cyber capabilities and presented a report on 5G technology to Congress and the White House.

“Our strategic approach – summarized by ‘People, Partners, and Innovation,’ relies on bringing in the best talent from across the military and from civilian industry and then empowering that talent,” said Gen. Michael Kurilla, commander of USCENTCOM.

Kurilla added that Moore will help the organization “lead on innovation and experimentation for the region.”
