    A new US cyberspace weapon system, the Cyberspace Vulnerability Assessment/Hunter (CVA/H), has reached the status of full operational capability (FOC), US Air Force Space Command said in a press release on Friday.

    WASHINGTON (Sputnik) — The system reached full operational capability on February 12, according to the Air Force Space Command.

    "Achieving FOC means the CVA/H weapon system is fully capable to serve as the premier enclave defense platform for prioritized traffic in the Air Force Information Network," the press release stated.

    Cyberspace Vulnerability Assessment/Hunter is a defense tool that enables assessments of vulnerability to enemy activities, detects threats and aids compliance evaluations.

    "CVA/H defends the Air Force's ability to fly, fight and win in air, space and cyberspace," Space Command’s Integrated Air, Space, Cyberspace Operations Director Stephen Whiting said.

    On January 7, the first Air Force cyberspace weapons system, the Air Force Intranet Control Weapon System, reached full operational capability.
