(TNS) — Under Star Wars-themed posters and on T-shirts, Defense Digital Service celebrated its move Thursday into the Hull McKnight Building of the Georgia Cyber Center.

Both the service and U.S. Army Cyber Command are hoping the center can help them to partner with industry and academia to find collaborators to tackle the toughest challenges. Army Cyber Commanding General Stephen G. Fogarty also has to recruit not only talent but to sell his current civilian workforce on moving to the Augusta area when the new Army Cyber Command Headquarters opens at Fort Gordon in June 2020.

The theme “Tatooine Defense Digital Service Rebel Outpost,” a reference to Luke Skywalker’s home planet, appeared around the center and Defense Digital Director Chris Lynch wore a “Visit Tatooine” T-shirt as he addressed a mixed audience of military and civilians interested in cyber.
