The ground-breaking ceremony for the Madera Cyber Innovation Center was hosted on Aug. 6 by the Air Force Academy’s superintendent, Lt. Gen Richard Clark. Paul Madera, 1978 Academy graduate and the center’s namesake, was present at the ceremony that Friday, alongside team members from the U.S. Army Corps of Engineers Omaha District and Rocky Mountain Area office, and several keynote speakers.

The center itself is projected to be around 33,000 square feet, and the entire facility is 42,000 square feet. According to the superintendent, the center “will feature state-of-the-art cyber-tech classrooms, labs, research and design spaces for cadets to explore advanced computer and cyber science concepts, facilitate collaboration with industry, academia and local partnerships. The center will help us accelerate change.” Construction is expected to complete in 2024.
