Cyber Test Ranges
The DoD EA for Cyber Test Ranges will develop, coordinate, and integrate plans to synchronize activities across the designated cyber test ranges and establish appropriate test infrastructure architectures and standards in order to provide a cohesive set of test and evaluation resources (e.g. facilities, capabilities and workforce) needed to ensure that DoD has the capability to conduct experimentation, research, and development, and test and evaluation in realistic, secure, and effective cyber contested environments. The primary purpose of cyber test capabilities and ranges is to enable the development, acquisition, and sustainment of DoD resilient systems. A federated set of cyber test range capabilities that are developed, funded, owned and operated by DoD components is envisioned. The DoD EA will have appropriate authorities and resourcing to partner with DoD Components to evolve existing capabilities to achieve this cohesive vision. Ranges are dual purpose and serve as multitude of stakeholders; therefore, with respect to the National Cyber Range, the DoD EA for Cyber Test Ranges will coordinate and synchronize efforts with the DoD EA for Cyber Training Ranges. Recognizing in particular the criticality of the existing National Cyber Range to establishment of a cyber training environment, the DoD EAs for Cyber Range Test and Training will develop a memorandum of agreement that ensures the apportionment of training assets, infrastructure, and range enhancements to meeting Training requirements on the National Cyber Range.
