What is the U.S. Army's CORE system?

CORE is a web-based content management system that specializes in indexing, packaging and publishing content created and submitted by Army public affairs personnel.

Content sharing made easy

CORE allows users to submit content, assemble it the way they want, and publish it to publicly accessible Web pages. By widening the user base and distributing control, The CORE is breaking new ground in collaboration within the Army.

Am I eligible for a CORE account?

Any 46Q/46R/46Z or 46A Soldier, 1035- or 1082-series DA civilian or contractor serving in a Public Affairs capacity, is eligible to set up a CORE account. However, in order to release content to the rest of the community, you must be a Public Affairs professional who has graduated from the Defense Information School (DINFOS), and have release authority for your command or organization.

This will be PAO/OPSEC training specific to people whose duties include operating or maintaining sites. Go to for more information about the training.
