Fort Hood, Texas -- Central Technical Support Facility (CTSF) supported the III Corps Signal Colloquy professional development event on Thursday, June 13, 2019.

CTSF's involvement during this event included engaging tactical, operational and strategic signal agencies and providing information with the intent to promote an understanding of signal maintenance operations across the Army. Signal-focused topics and conversations serve to enhance collective knowledge and in turn provide the best support the warfighter.

The event included sharing lessons learned, best practices for signal maintenance, professional development, and signal communication initiatives. Specifically, CTSF provided the group of approximately 60 signal officers with an understanding of CTSF missions to include Army interoperability certification testing, engineering services and configuration management of the Army's tactical software baselines.

The objective of the professional development session was to enable the group to take away knowledge of how CTSF supports the maintenance and cyber-security of software in the field through the CIO-G6 and Dept. of the Army G3 certification and fielding processes and baseline documentation.

CTSF, a major subordinate of the U.S. Army Communications-Electronics Command, provides a unique, scalable environment, with skilled personnel, using qualified processes to support the Department of Defense's net-enabled strategic vision. This is done by executing configuration management, system-of-systems integration and interoperability testing, and by making training and integration facilities available to the Army and to C4I providers. It is the vision of the CTSF to become a customer-valued organization, ensuring the best interoperable net-centric C4I capabilities available to the Army and to the warfighter.
