What is the CCW?

The Center for Cyber Warfare (CCW) is an interdisciplinary problem solving research center in the Department of Electrical and Computer Engineering (ECE) at the Naval Postgraduate School (NPS) in Monterey, California. The CCW faculty work in collaboration with other universities and innovative commercial companies to deliver basic and applied research solutions to the Navy, U.S. government, DoD, and intelligence communities.


Approved by the NPS Research Board on October 5, 2009, the CCW conducts a mix of classified and unclassified research and offers unique educational programs designed to provide the modern warfighter with tactical and operational responses to immediate and anticipated threats in U.S. and allied cyber space.

The CCW Ethos and Why it Matters:

Central to CCW culture is the paradigm that advancing innovation in cyberspace necessitates going beyond traditional cross-disciplinary research. It requires joint problem solving with an eye toward discovering solutions at the intersections of diverse disciplines and ideas. The CCW’s approach to research is to advance broad outcomes by producing highly focused technical solutions.

Our approach enables us to address challenges that would not only go unaddressed, but likely unidentified.


Accelerating solutions through joint problem solving at the intersections of ideas. That’s our vision, culture, and operational ethos.
