National Cyber Range
The Defense Advanced Research Projects Agency (DARPA) has created a National Cyber Range (NCR) to protect and defend the nation’s critical information systems. The NCR has revolutionized the state of the art for large-scale cyber testing and provided fully automated range management and test management suites to test and validate leap-ahead cyber research technologies and systems.
As a national resource for testing unclassified and classified cyber programs, the NCR dynamically allocates resources to multiple, simultaneous Government and Government-sponsored tests, including on-site technical support, sophisticated offensive and defensive adversaries, and neutral observers/controllers who will evaluate cyber technologies.
See the DARPA NCR factsheet for more information.
Teamed with John Hopkins Applied Physics Laboratory (APL), Secure Decisions has developed Range Command and Control management and visualizations to support the test bed.
