A Message From Mark E. Russell Vice President of Engineering, Technology and Mission Assurance
Cyberspace is clearly its own domain now, on par with the domains of air, land, sea
and space, and like its counterparts, the cyberdomain can be just as risky a place.

leverage all sources of capabilities and technology. These include program funding,
contracted research and development, internal research and development, and
enterprise campaigns, as well as partnerships, alliances, mergers and acquisitions.
