                                                  As cyber missions evolve and intensify, the right Artificial Intelligence (AI) tool is a necessary precondition for success, enabling army networks and network defenders to correlate established metrics with real-time activity data. Whether the immediate priority is defense or offense, an effective response to the modern landscape demands not only faster operational decisions, but the right decisions to counter an emerging threat or take advantage of a strategic opportunity—without requiring high-level data science skills to undertake a mission. To defend against external threats, an AI system must offer increased speed and more effective response by enabling autonomous active cyber operations. That... ...read more...

                                                              Like their counterparts in physical warfighting domains, cyber operators need camouflage when they conduct their missions. This session will explore how a range of emerging technologies work together to disguise operators and eliminate cyber attack surfaces from the view of adversaries. Such techniques are already in use by the DoD, the Intelligence Community, and commercial organizations to shield their cyber protection teams and to carry out cyber threat investigations, threat hunting operations, and internet-based research. Attendees will learn how these capabilities privatize the public internet using high levels of network obfuscation, multiple layers of encryption, and dynamic IP routing, and... ...read more...

Our adversaries will leverage this “grey zone” conflict across Political, Military, Economic, Social, Information, Infrastructure, Physical Environment, and Time (PMESII-PT) in an attempt to defeat U.S. power. The importance of cross-functional integrated cyber, electronic warfare and signals intelligence has been recognized for the last decade not only the United States but across our near-peer competitors and potential adversaries.

The traditional communications approach to counter the threat uses expensive, hard-to-use, nuclear-hardened communications systems or direct-sequence waveforms to protect low capacity data links by spending large amounts of bandwidth. Viasat's approach is to arm our warfighters with affordable, resilient, high-capacity, easy to use, rapid deploy SATCOM systems that have inherent LPI/LPD/AJ protection. This requires our adversaries to bring their most exquisite and expensive systems to the field, to invest considerable resources, and yet fail against our flexible, affordable systems.
