1049

US Military has decided to send Cyber Warriors to the battlefield if in case a war like the situation or something like World War 3 erupts in near future. Colonel Robert Ryan, who commands a Hawaii based combat team has admitted the role of cyber soldiers to play a crucial role in the next war. And said that they’ll be used to scoop information or intercept planned attacks such as denial of services.

All these days, cyber soldiers, working under Cyber Command (Cybercom) were acting as a subordinate to the US Strategic Command. But in August this year, Donald Trump, the 45th US President ordered Pentagon to elevate CyberCom to its own command, in a sign of its growing importance.

From the past 3 years, the US Army is said to have conducted training for the cyber soldiers at a specially designed center in Southern California. And Cybersecurity Insiders has learned that the cyber army of United States has not only the potential to launch cyber attacks but can also use electromagnetic cannons to destroy the working of computers, electrical arrangement and the wholesome operations of specific targets like drones, war tanks, fighter jets and automated robots.

William Hartman, the Commandant Colonel of the Army’s Cyber Command said that the objective of Cybercom is to create confusion and gain control of the enemies digital assets. He added that Cybercom under the leadership of Trump is being nurtured in such a way that it can prove as an atomic weapon to destroy enemies artillery within no time.

And according to New York Times, CyberCom has also succeeded in placing implants in ISIS networks that let US Army experts monitor the group’s behavior and ultimately imitate or alter commander messages meant to guide or operate Terror Groups.
