United States Cyber Infrastructure

Some of the most interesting parts of critical infrastructure is cyber security. The military, Department of Homeland Security, and Department of Defense have dedicated information technology protection. Cyber security is an organizational structure to anticipate and respond to cyber attacks. The science and technology that has developed to protect information between government and corporations is changing rapidly. The reference attached talks about the different divisions like Space Force Commercial satellite communications office that integrates the administrative and integration support of satellite technologies. The importance of cyber infrastructure is the fast paced world of information tracking and keeping information from hostiles, government entities and corporation corruption. Cyber security has changed as the number of satellites orbiting the planet has increased since the space race. Many of the satellites that are orbiting the earth are international and commercial uses. Joint functions between the Space Force and Air Force have changed the information transformation that support the socio-economic functions of the United States. Defense Support Program (DSP) Satellites are a key part of North America's early warning systems. The program will detect missile launches, space launches and nuclear detonations. The DSP satellites will detect missile and booster plumes from the Earth's surface. DSP's effectiveness was proven during Operation Desert Storm when detecting the launch of Iraqi Scud missiles and provided warning to civilian populations and coalition forces in Israel and Saudi Arabia. The operations that are needed for national security based on cyber warfare are vital to the sovereignty of the US and allied forces. Many of the satellites that orbit the Earth can transmute data from different locations around the globe. The importance of cyber defense is vital for the full hemispheric coverage and improved resolution of signal-processing capability including clutter rejection. Statistical data should be collected to administer effective technology research into the existing satellites and enhanced satellite programs.
