IDS WINS 2019 CYBER BLITZ CONTRACT
SMEIR, IDS’s fully functional cyber and information operations range, was chosen as one of the technologies to be tested by the US Army during 2019 Cyber Blitz being held at Fort Dix, New Jersey. IDS is developing and delivering exercise relevant content within the replicated training environment including social media personas and content (e.g. posts, tweets, photos), fictious web content, and exercise role player and persona demographic themes.
Additionally, IDS is designing and developing the offensive and defensive cyber operational scenarios tied to software defined networking, virtualized network topology, and simulated traffic generation.
IDS participated in AFCEA International’s May Innovation Shark Tank event. Noah Melgar, Director, Social Media and Cyber, presented on SMEIR (Social Media Environment & Internet Replication) to the panel of sharks.
Utilizing our proprietary SMEIR technology and a cadre of subject matter experts, IDS performs large scale cyber space exercises for DoD customers. From conducting social media operations of analytics, to engagement, to traditional offensive and defensive cyber operations, SMEIR provides a hyper realistic environment where information operations and full spectrum cyber intersect for training purposes.
Melgar stated our mission perfectly “We are building the environment that we all wanted when we were in uniform.”
