Planning is underway for the Army Information Systems Engineering Command to support construction of new facilities and a permanent infrastructure for U.S. Army Europe Soldiers in Poland.Currently in the programming and design phase, ISEC’s support will assist in the U.S. commitment to help deter Russian aggression in Poland.“We will provide automation and communications support to the Army warfighter through aggressive management of the Military Construction-Army program,” said John Hamilton, ISEC Military Construction Site Project Lead for Europe. “Our efforts will ensure information systems within MCA projects use cost-effective and current technologies compatible with existing enterprise architecture.”The USAEURO project is a part of ISEC’s ongoing requirement to provide support to the U.S. Army CIO-G6, Army Corps of Engineers, Army Installation Management Command, and other Army entities for military construction projects through the Military Construction Group within the ISEC-Fort Detrick Engineering Directorate.In coordination with Army Europe G6 and the 2d Theater Brigade, ISEC will ensure compliance with technical criteria, provide advice on project development and implantation, and ensure fiscal and regulatory requirements are met. The command will also perform liaison duties with Army Europe G6 and USACE-Europe District to improve project implementation.Army Network Enterprise Technology Command and the 39th Strategic Signal Battalion, located in Chièvres, Belgium, will provide boots-on-the-ground network support during the expeditionary mission.The military construction project will take place in multiple locations and will be primarily managed by U.S. forces. However, Hamilton said that the facilities and infrastructure will allow the U.S., Polish, and other allied armed forces access to coalition networks and the mission partner environment.“The permanent infrastructure will be stood up at several locations throughout Poland,” Hamilton said. “I will work hand-in-hand with USACE-Europe District, the Army Europe G-6, Defense Information Systems Agency, host nation personnel, architectural and engineering firms, and other Army organizations to complete the planning and construction process.”About ISECHeadquartered at Fort Huachuca, Arizona, ISEC is one of the five subordinate elements of the U.S. Army Communications-Electronics Command and serves as the Army’s distributed testing lab to ensure the warfighter’s communication needs are met with a functional, secure network infrastructure.The ISEC-Fort Detrick Engineering Directorate delivers information technology planning, engineering, and implementation of enterprise-wide and local IT solutions for Army and DOD. FDED also provides IT solutions for program managers and organizations in need of superior IT system design or upgrades.Learn more about ISEChttps://www.cecom.army.mil/USAISEC
