Richard Wittstruck, associate director of Field Based Experimentation and Integration at the U.S. Army CCDC C5ISR Center, discusses the latest Cyber Blitz experiment, and why training soldiers for multi-domain operations is important.

The Army’s Cyber Blitz program trains soldiers in the skills necessary to use new technologies and execute multi-domain operations. Richard Wittstruck, associate director of Field Based Experimentation and Integration at the U.S. Army C5ISR Center, says that the program has grown greatly since it started.

 

“When we started this in 2016, it was on the premise of validating doctrine as it resulted in cyber and electromagnetic activities. As it has evolved, the Army realized the importance of being able to fight to learn. If we want to fight to win, we have to learn,” Wittstruck said. “We have to learn about ourselves, our allies and the enemy. This has evolved over four years now to become more complex more distributed over the world and synchronized in timing and tempo. With that, we’ve had to bring the allies in.”
