Virtual cyber training networks to be developed for Navy

SILVER SPRING, Md. Resolvn, cybersecurity training environment developer, won a contract to develop and maintain the U.S. Navy's high-fidelity virtual training range on the Persistent Cyber Training Environment (PCTE) platform.

Consisting of fourteen connected networks including those of a power plant, multiple internet service providers, a Department of Defense facility, municipal buildings, and others, the range's modular design is intended to allow training managers to deploy instances of any, or all, of the fully functioning networks.

According to the company, this virtualization of real-world environments will reduce the time required to implement individual and team defensive or offensive training, allowing sailors to train regularly in near-to-spec networks with automated internal and external traffic generation and user emulation.
