U.S. Central Command announced today that it has hired Schuyler Moore as its first chief technology officer.
Moore most recently served as the chief strategy officer within U.S. Naval Forces Central Command's recently established Task Force 59, which focuses on the deployment of unmanned systems and the leveraging of artificial intelligence in maritime operations.
She previously was the Defense Innovation Board’s director of science and technology, in addition to working as a senior congressional defense and foreign policy adviser.
“I am honored by the opportunity and look forward to helping drive the rapid integration of disruptive technology, generating new concepts of technology use, and growing the Culture of Innovation across USCENTCOM,” Schuyler said in the release. “Given the evolving threat landscape and advances in critical fields like robotics and AI, there is a great urgency to innovate rapidly. USCENTCOM is poised to accelerate capability through experimentation and innovation in this critical moment.”
