The Department of Defense (DOD) has failed to embrace the cyberspace domain fully. Ground force commanders use cyberspace as a supporting establishment—a supplemental signals intelligence (SigInt) platform—rather than a domain of warfare that requires support. The use of combat mission teams (CMTs) in this manner has limited development of cyberspace doctrine, cyberspace tactics, and offensive cyberspace exploitation.
