The Army has postponed an industry day for its $957 million Cyber Training, Readiness, Integration, Delivery and Enterprise effort due to the COVID-19 outbreak, the service announced this week.

A March 17 Army notice states the Cyber TRIDENT industry day, originally planned for April 2 in Orlando, FL, will be postponed to late April. The service is looking for alternative ways of hosting the conference, including one-on-one sessions versus face-to-face meetings.

The Army released draft statements of work for Cyber TRIDENT last November, which included three delivery orders for infrastructure and maintenance, integration factory and platform capability production for the Persistent Cyber Training Environment platform, which is a part of the system.

A draft solicitation dated March 10 says the PCTE will provide the Defense Department cyberspace workforce "the capability to conduct cyberspace training, exercises, mission rehearsals, experimentations, certifications, as well as the ability to assess and develop cyber tactics, techniques and procedures."

The Army plans to award a contract for Cyber TRIDENT in 2021, according to the solicitation.
