On Thursday, the Defense Digital Service (DDS) announced the expansion of its pilot program to support and utilize talent within the Army Cyber Command alongside private sector talent with the creation of a new workspace in Augusta, Ga., named Tatooine, of Star Wars fame. “The workspace is designed to house tech teams, cultivate talent, and promote innovative ways to solve mission challenges,” the department said in a statement. The expansion will allow the program to scale up its efforts, which have included building drone detection technologies, finding adversaries on DoD’s networks, and designing cybersecurity training. “The creation of the new workspace for the program will allow for more teams to be created without the need to relocate soldiers to the DDS headquarters in Washington, D.C.,” the department stated.
