Cyber SU enables CEMA (Cyber Electromagnetic Activities) analysis and CCIR (Commander Critical Information Requirements) development to inform the Commander in operational terms, the state and status of cyber operations, and their impact to overall mission operations.
Cyber SU integrates COTS capabilities into the Command Post Computing Environment (CPCE) to enable CEMA Working Group operations across the Physical, Network and Cyber-persona Cyber Operational (CO) layers, to include cross-staff MDMP/CoA development and running estimate support. Uses CPCE infrastructure to build and present a consolidated picture of the CEMA operational environment relevant to strategic, operational and tactical Army units. Interfaces with external intelligence and network operation support systems for real-time cyber operational data analysis and visualization by the CEMA working groups.
