Mission & Strategy

The CPG will identify, enable, and accelerate the fielding of innovative, operationally-relevant concepts and technologies to improve Air Force, Joint, and Coalition cyberspace operations capabilities.  The CPG forms a key component to the overall rapid fielding strategy of "Think Big, Start Small, Scale Fast" by focusing on small, agile projects; strong partnerships; a culture of rapid learning and decision-making; responsive acquisition; and Real Time Operations & Innovation authorities.

Organization




The Cyber Proving Ground (CPG) is a collaborative effort between 24th Air Force, 25th Air Force, and the Air Force Life Cycle Management Center. It enables and supports high performance teams assembled from the breadth of the Air Force cyber community of interest and external partners to rapidly assess the applicability of emerging concepts and technologies to address emergent cyberspace operational challenges.

The CPG focuses on providing timely feedback from Air Force cyberspace operators to developers, acquirers, and relevant research efforts.  This collaboration, combined with realistic cyberspace environments, provides the development and acquisition communities the opportunity to rapidly understand and respond to current and future needs.  By supporting a rapid fielding philosophy, the CPG facilitates research and operations, including the evaluation and expedited acquisition of commercial products to meet the needs of Air Force, Joint, and Coalition cyberspace operations.

The CPG will support the full range of cyberspace lines of operation with initial emphasis on Command and Control, Defensive Cyberspace Operations, and Offensive Cyberspace Operations.
