Air Force trains for battles in cyberspace

The Air Force is training 320,000 airmen to use PCs as a counter weapon ready for action in cyberspace.

The Air Force has extended its mission and is training 320,000 troops to protect against unseen enemies in cyberspace. The Air Force will not only patrol the skies, it will also be ready to combat enemy action on the Internet, over cell phones and through signals that trigger bombs. Computer warfare will be taught in basic training, the Air Force Academy and officer candidate school, according to Brig. Gen. Mark Schissler. Plus, the Air Force expects to graduate 100 candidates per year from its Undergraduate Network Warfare Training course.
