WIESBADEN, Germany –As part of the U.S. Army Information Systems Engineering Command’s mission to provide cyber engineering, integration, implementation, evaluation and cyber security engineering to the Joint Warfighter worldwide, USAISEC is currently leading the effort in planning, coordinating, engineering, documenting and delivering network and voice over internet protocol capabilities to the intelligence communities to support their areas of responsibility.
The Consolidated Intelligence Center (CIC) provides critical 24/7 intelligence operations and analysis for U.S. Army Europe-Africa and other intelligence agencies. The CIC’s network infrastructure enables the capability to support all-source and ground order of battle analysis, intelligence to the Joint Multi-National Readiness Center, as well as biometric, counter-intelligence/force protection, signals intelligence, human intelligence, and measurement and signature intelligence operations.
“The CIC increases the Warfighters’ capability to execute multiple theatre intelligence operations,” said Johnathan Reyes, a systems engineer with the ISEC Europe Field Office. “This is important because there are many intelligence organizations around the Wiesbaden area, on different posts, so consolidating these intelligence organizations into one building facilitates better intelligence coordination and collaboration with U.S. Army Europe headquarters, helping them to make better command decisions.
“ISEC has been a critical part of this ongoing effort, a multi-year project,” Reyes said. “There were many iterations of design planning, implementation from building design, passive to active infrastructure to better serve what the community needs. Since the requirements were created initially more than a decade ago, a lot of modernization occurs to make it work with current and future requirements for all the commands that will be in the CIC.”
Ultimately the work ISEC is doing to bring the CIC to fruition will help deliver a coordinated and consolidated intelligence picture to the European theater.
