Warrant Officer Panel: Signal and Cyber Warrant Officer Evolution to Support Multi-Domain Operations (MDO) and Information Advantage (IA)
Tuesday, August 17, 2021: 10:30 AM - 11:30 AM
The Army is diligently working with industry to develop capabilities to fill operational gaps that have materialized with the shift to Multi-Domain Operations (MDO) and operationalization of Information Advantage (IA) while focusing on Joint interoperability. As Army operations transform to a data-centric mindset from the enterprise to the tactical edge, the Army must ensure data is at the right place at the right time and in a format that can be identified, retrieved, and correlated quickly enough to speed decision cycles and provide commanders decision dominance. Signal and Cyber Warrant Officer (WO) skill sets, focus areas, and education are evolving to ensure the applicable technical expertise is available when and where required as operations adapt, new problems are realized, capabilities are developed, and technologies advance. Senior WOs discuss this evolution to inform the Signal and Cyber WO cohort and explore how industry partners can be involved.
