U.S. Army Soldiers assigned to 1st Battalion, 64th Armored Regiment, 1st Brigade Combat Team, 3rd Infantry Division, adjust and utilize their hydration system around the perimeter of a simulated chemically contaminated facility during Decisive Action Rotation 18-01 at the National Training Center in Fort Irwin, California, Oct. 23, 2017. When the unit had to relocate the brigade command post, Soldiers wore this gear, making it even more difficult to set up and wire a large brigade command post. Secure Wi-Fi made it much easier and faster to set up a network under these extreme conditions, and users were able to connect to the network and to their mission command systems earlier and stay connected longer prior to the next command post relocation.

U.S. Army Soldiers with 1st Brigade Combat Team, 3rd Infantry Division, depart garrison to the desert during Decisive Action Rotation 17-05 at the National Training Center in Fort Irwin, California, March 31, 2017. The 1st Brigade Combat Team, 3rd Infantry Division debuted the use of Secure Wi-Fi during this rotation. Without the use of Secure Wireless, every time a command post is relocated, or “jumped,” the cables have to be cut, laid out, configured and plugged in, and often replaced due to damage and continual wear and tear. Secure Wireless significantly reduces command post set up/tear down times.
