New facilities supporting Army Cyber Operations and Command and Control functions will be constructed during the first phase of the project, planned for completion in May 2018 at a cost of $85.1 million. The Army Corps of Engineers Savannah District contracted B.L. Harbert International, LLC, of Birmingham, Alabama to carry out the construction.
The second phase of construction to support Cyber Protection Team operations is expected to be completed in early 2019. The buildings, with a total baseline capacity to support more than 1,200 cyber Soldiers and civilians, are projected to be fully ready for occupation in late 2020.
The facilities are designed to strengthen the Army and improve cyber mission readiness by bringing together cutting-edge, innovative information technology, cyberspace operations capabilities, and an open, collaborative working environment to support the next generation of the Army’s Cyber force.
United States Army Cyber Command and Second Army directs and conducts integrated electronic warfare, information and cyberspace operations as authorized, or directed, to ensure freedom of action in and through cyberspace and the information environment, and to deny the same to our adversaries.
