Abstract:

The 2018 ACE continued a 15-year tradition of excellence with immersion in the cybersecurity discipline over a 10-week time span through a combination of intense coursework and internship experiences. This graduate level curriculum covered leadership during crises, the science of mission assurance, the art of cyber warfare and writtenoral communication skills. This year ACE interns put every lesson into practice through open-ended challenge problems that covered the full range of cyber operations. Their capstone combined these lessons through a two-day exercise in a contested cyber-kinetic battlespace at the Air Force Research Laboratory AFRL Stockbridge Test Range.
