U.S. Air Force wants to improve its ability to “attacks in cyberspace”
The Air Force of the United States (USAF) released a statement that has perplexed, especially the Americans themselves and that this important branch of the military is seeking to increase its power of attack in cyberspace. (Yes, “cyber” as in the 90s).
The statement calls “conceptual projects in information operations capabilities that focus on cyber warfare” and even an email comes to where you can submit projects for review .
It turns out that the Air Force has an entire division dedicated to the development and support of the war in cyberspace (I apologize for the continued use of this horrible term) and in fact, you can access, positioning, maneuver and attack from cyberspace the same enemy. Basically, they can do whatever the Internet and believe they are playing Call of Duty with data from enemy nations, or at least, is what part of the statement says:
“The use of cyberspace capabilities to destroy, deny, degrade, disrupt, deceive, corrupt or usurp adversary’s abilities to use cyberspace to their advantage.”
It may seem odd but actually, it is not surprising Remember when it bought over 2000 USAF PlayStation 3 for use as a supercomputer? Sure, the idea was to improve the radar images, video processing and artificial intelligence able to obtain, almost like a human being, not attacking the networks of other countries.
Remember that the U.S. Army did not mince words in its collective hysteria and paranoia, think they can do whatever it takes to defend their country and if that means putting the military branches work in digital operations, it will do.
