WHITE SANDS MISSILE RANGE, N.M. (Nov. 7, 2018) — Maj. Gen. Joel K. Tyler (left), commander of the Aberdeen Proving Ground, Md.-based U.S. Army Test and Evaluation Command (ATEC), chats with Maj. Shigenobu T. Morinaga, executive officer for 3rd Brigade Combat Team (BCT), 82nd Airborne Division from Fort Bragg, N.C., about how modern battlefield communication systems work together, during the Network Integration Evaluation (NIE) 18.2 at the Digital Multi-Purpose Training Range here. The 3rd BCT is the rotational unit testing the Army's communications backbone during NIE 18.2, which runs through Nov. 12. It is a Soldier-led evaluation exercise designed to integrate and rapidly progress the Army's battlefield communications network. As the ATEC commander, part of Tyler's job is to plan, integrate, and conduct independent operational testing. To that end, independent evaluations like NIE 18.2 provide essential information to Army acquisition decision makers and senior commanders.
