Data, “the new ammunition,” must be relentlessly protected. Security must permeate every aspect of the software supply chain, architecture must be flexible to meet the demands of complex environments and developers must share and review source code. Artificial intelligence and machine learning are essential tools for vigilant monitoring, testing and mitigation.

In addition, the Guardian Ideal defines a digital service with a flexible talent structure. To recruit the most technologically capable force, talent management systems must align timely skills and mission data in a way that is easily actionable. For this cadre of elite warfighters, talent management can leverage a complex ecosystem of data linkages to ensure individuals are using their best skills for mission success. Guardians will see a dynamic roadmap for career development and find the training they need to fill critical skills gaps.

This program explores how Space Force is using data and digital transformation tools to realize the Guardian Ideal, what securing the DevSecOps pipeline looks like and how Space Force and its partners are enabling the digital warfighter.
