    Coming soon to the front lines of combat, US cyber soldiers, armed with keyboards, codes and electromagnetic tools to support traditional military operations.

    The US Army Cyber Command, now in its eighth year of operation, says it is getting close to regularly deploying cyber soldiers to the battlefield.

    The goal is to be able to disable adversaries in the field, in real-time.

    Al Jazeera's Heidi Zhou-Castro reports from Washington, DC.
