FORT GORDON, Ga. (AP) - Military officials say they're moving forward with a plan that will consolidate U.S. cyberspace training into a new center of excellence at Fort Gordon in east Georgia.

The Augusta Chronicle reports (http://bit.ly/16xtabc) that the Army's chief of staff, Gen. Ray Odierno, has approved the plan, which officials describe as 1 of the most significant reorganizations in American intelligence.

The newspaper reports that the Army plans to create a Cyber Center of Excellence at Fort Gordon that will "unify and modernize" all cyber-related training efforts, including those that teach how to use electronic-warfare technology to track electromagnetic activity worldwide.

Ray Harp, a spokesman for the U.S. Army Training and Doctrine Command, said Army Secretary John McHugh is expected to approve the measure soon.
