SMEIR FEATURED ON UWPP
SMEIR, IDS's proprietary information operations and cyber warfare training environment, is highlighted in the current episode of Urban Warfare Project Podcast.
“SMEIR (Social Media Environment Internet Replication) system, we can do IO campaigns, open source scraping….all social media and internet…instead of having 1,000 people typing and putting stuff in, we just turn this on and it populates all of that. We can tailor the messages and triggers, so a unit can exploit that.” Nicholas Marchuk
IDS operates and maintains the MUTC cyber range and agrees that it is, "legit....around the world, the best, urban training site."
