24 July 2017

Key Points

  • The ACAL will give scientists access to highly sensitive live cyber security data
  • A core focus will be rapidly developing cyber defence solutions

The US Army’s research laboratory has opened a collaborative research space to bring together academia, industry, and the military services to address emerging and developing requirements for cyber defensive operations.

The Army Cyber-research Analytics Laboratory (ACAL) is focused on bringing those collaborative pieces together and providing them access to highly sensitive live cyber security data, Curtis Arnold, chief of the sustaining base network assurance branch for the Army Research Lab (ARL), told Jane’s .

The ACAL was developed as a result of a “strong partnership” with the Army Cyber Command and extends ongoing collaborative efforts with the US Department of Defense’s (DoD's) science and technology community, the ARL said in a statement.
