ABSTRACT: AIS, Inc. proposes the Cyber Battlefield Training and Effectiveness Environment (CBTEE) project to develop a prototype training environment with integrated sensor technology tailored at training cyber warriors in rapidly evolving cyber battlefield. The CBTEE will utilize state of the art hypervisor technology to present users with a scalable and cost efficient virtualized training environment. Integrated sensors within this environment feed data to aggregation and analysis processes which are capable of identifying and scoring user progression towards a mission goal. The system is capable of presenting this material in a clear and concise manner for briefing, debriefing, and after action reporting purposes. Data from exercises is capable of being replayed and referenced at a later time to help optimize and refine the training process over time. BENEFIT: Given the advanced nature of cyber battle, and the presence of cyber attacks throughout every network worldwide, training environments for both offensive and defensive security professionals is becoming a major market. Major corporations responsible for delivering networking equipment, host protection software packages, and network security software conduct regular training exercises on their systems for customers daily. A system such as this can easily be productized as a tool for these organizations or others responsible for training users to augment and evolve their training process and environment.
