The U.S. Army Research, Development and Engineering Command Communications & Electronics Center, located at Aberdeen Proving Ground, Maryland, is the Army's information technologies and integrated systems center.

The Communications & Electronics Center is one of six research, development and engineering centers within RDECOM, which has the mission to ensure decisive overmatch for unified land operations to empower the Army, the joint warfighter and the nation.

The center's mission is to develop and integrate Command, Control, Communications, Computers, Intelligence, Surveillance, and Reconnaissance, known as C4ISR, technologies that enable information dominance and decisive lethality for the networked Soldier. It has the vision to be the Department of Defense leader in C4ISR systems engineering and technology development.

The Communications & Electronics Center conducts vigorous research and development programs -- in the areas of command, power and integration; intelligence and information warfare; night vision and electronic sensors; and space and terrestrial communications -- linking various technology producers including industry, academia and the foreign sector as well as other government agencies.

State-of-the-art equipment such as night vision goggles, satellite technology providing friendly and enemy target recognition, and enhanced audio and visual wireless, were all developed at the Communications & Electronics Center to enhance Soldier capabilities in the field.
