The US Pentagon plans to reprogram $100 million toward uncovering cyber flaws in major weapon systems, according to budget documents cited by defensenews.com.
Defense Department Comptroller Mike McCord notified Congress of plans to move the money from a technology analysis account to a research, test and evaluation account—described as classified in the DoD’s 2016 budget justification.
According to a memo posted on the Department of Defense Comptroller website, the money will be used for “the assessment of major weapons systems cyber vulnerabilities.”
According to the Military Times, the Defense Department is bound by law to evaluate the cyber vulnerabilities of major weapons systems and report to Congress by the end of 2019, with $200 million authorized for the project.
