Fort Bragg, N.C. — The U.S. Army’s Communications-Electronics Command’s Information Systems Engineering Command, or USAISEC, is providing technical assistance in support of audio and visual information systems at the 82nd Airborne Division’s new headquarters facility at Fort Bragg, N.C.

“ISEC is responsible for the engineer, furnish, install and test of audio and visual information systems at the new headquarters facility,” said project lead, Maj. Chad Watts of USAISEC – Enterprise Systems Engineering Directorate at Fort Huachuca.

USAISEC provides visual information systems for the IT infrastructure at the new headquarters, including a special purpose auditorium, a Joint Operations Center, or JOC, multiple conference rooms and a Sensitive Compartmented Information Facility, or SCIF, Operations Room.

Watts went on to explain the benefit the new JOC will provide for the Army.

“The JOC provides mission command for the Global Response Force by utilizing a state-of-the-art facility able to maintain situational understanding of worldwide threats and collaboration of data with the intelligence community and various national organizations.”

Watts described how the new JOC provides numerous capabilities that will benefit the 82nd Airborne’s mission of supporting combatant commands in accomplishing U.S. national policy objectives.

“The JOC provides timely and accurate information and intelligence to division leaders for decision making, receives and publishes operations orders, tracks the readiness, training and operations of all division units, submits required reports and keeps higher headquarters informed on the status of the division,” said Watts.

The stakeholders involved in the coordination of the JOC include the Army chief information officer/G6, U.S. Army Forces Command G6, XVIII Airborne Corps G6, 82nd Airborne Division, U.S. Army Corps of Engineers, USAISEC, 93rd Signal Brigade, Fort Bragg Network Enterprise Center and Fort Bragg Department of Public Works. These organizations were involved in weekly and monthly collaborative meetings to establish updates, identify issues, assign responsibilities and maintain open lines of communication, according to Watts. ISEC participated in monthly review sessions, senior level meetings, weekly IT stakeholder and technical working groups.

Much of the success of the planning and execution of the new headquarters facility is due to reviewing the lessons learned from the past base realignment and closures of prior installations. Watts addressed the following key points that the ISEC team used to implement their strategies.

Watts said the team ensured that all parties, including participating contract and legal representatives, had clear roles established and were aware of their responsibilities and suspense dates.

“Project leadership was extremely knowledgeable regarding the Army regulations and guidelines,” said Watts. “We facilitated a good rapport with the Army Corps of Engineers and other supporting agencies. Staffing would be based on appropriate levels to accomplish the effort, and a single individual would not wear multiple hats.”
