NSCI Clients

NSCI supports a range of customers.  The below table illustrates a few of our recent clients and associated support activities.

  • Perform operational and technical analysis of future concepts, emerging technologies, and experimentation to support capability integration across USCYBERCOM and several Joint Functional Component Commands (JFCCs) including:
    • JFCC-Global Strike (JFCC-GS)
    • JFCC-Space (JFCC-S)
    • JFCC-Integrated Missile Defense (JFCC-IMD)
  • Collaborate and coordinate with USJFCOM, Headquarters, Air Combat Command, and the Air Force Command and Control Integration Center (C2IC).
  • Provided cyber subject matter expertise in coordinating with USJFCOM regarding cyberspace Limited Objective Experiments.
  • Assisted in authoring a report that captured efforts from a cyberspace manning IPT and related Limited Objective Experiments. The report documented "as-is" manpower information as provided by all stakeholders, future objective end states for cyber manpower as developed during LOEs, and COAs from Services to move from current to future end states. Findings and recommendations from this IPT were accepted by the Joint Requirements Oversight Council as the new standardized baseline for cyberspace manning and professional qualifications.
  • Visited numerous cyber operations centers to assess Computer Network Defense capabilities and shortfalls.
  • Assisted in developing and executing USSTRATCOM Cyber Analysis Campaign Plan to identify DoD cyber-related training, technology, and process capability gaps and priorities.
