In Rise of the Machines timeline, after the destruction of Cyberdyne Building, the United States Air Force contracted with Cyber Research Systems, who purchased patents from Cyberdyne Systems, who backed up its research data off-site, to develop Skynet and other advanced weapons, including Terminators and Hunter-Killers such as T-1, T-600, T-800, and Hunter-Killer Aerial Weapons Platform. Lieutenant General Robert Brewster was in charge of the project.
By the year 2003 (2004), Cyber Research Systems had created several different series of relatively primitive Terminators, such as T-1 and T-600 to replace U.S. soldiers in field combat before Judgment Day.

- CRS only exists in Rise of the Machines and Kyla's World timeline. As the film Terminator Salvation served as both a sequel to Terminator 3: Rise of the Machines and a soft reboot, CRS was retconned and removed along with other settings while Cyberdyne Systems was brought back into the fiction.
- Notably, in CRS's timeline, the organization built Terminator Endoskeleton before Judgment Day. In Cyberdyne's timeline, the organization didn't build Terminator Endoskeleton until after Skynet became self-aware. Cyberdyne only built T-70 Terminator prior to Judgment Day.
