ABERDEEN PROVING GROUND, Md. – More than 7,500 skilled professionals at APG directly support the verification, accreditation and integration of network and cyber systems into a unified, functioning and secure Army and Joint network.
Located at APG, the Command, Control, Communications, Computers, Intelligence, Surveillance and Reconnaissance, or C4ISR, Center of Excellence provides complete life cycle management for the Army’s portfolio of communications, intelligence, cyber and electronics equipment. APG organizations develop, manage procurement efforts, field and sustain the Army’s tactical network systems and intelligence gathering and analysis tools.
APG’s C4ISR campus is home to the Army’s state-of-the-art C4ISR research and integration laboratories and facilities. Each play a critical role in validating capabilities before they are delivered to the field, ensuring Soldiers have the secure, effective and intuitive communications tools they need to complete their missions. The C4ISR campus facilities are networked together, allowing each facility to efficiently leverage the resources and test systems as if all of the assets from each lab were located at a single site.
Currently, there are Team APG C4ISR civilians and service members deployed around the world – providing rapid capability development and end-unit fielding, training, logistics, and engineering and field service expertise – to enable operations wherever the mission takes the U.S. warfighter.
An integrated Army network supporting the Army’s Army Warfighter Assessments and Network Integration Evaluations are also made possible due APG systems engineers, test officers, integrators and field technicians.
APG’s Team C4ISR consists of the U.S. Army Communications and Electronics Command, Program Executive Offices C3T and IEWS and the Communications and Electronics Research, Development and Engineering Center and the Army Rapid Capabilities Office.
The contributions of these organizations will be explored in this Team C4ISR “Technology Takeover” of APG News’ Inside the Innovation:
FORT BLISS, Texas— During Army Warfighting Assessment (AWA) 17.1 in October 2016, U.S. and coalition forces conducted realistic war games in the austere southwest desert to improve how they fight, communicate and share digital data on the battlefield.
ABERDEEN PROVING GROUND, Md. – Headquartered at APG, CECOM ensures the global readiness of the complex, networked C4ISR systems and capabilities that provide joint forces with the advanced information and technology they need to communicate on today’s battlefield.
ABERDEEN PROVING GROUND, Md. – The Army’s Program Executive Office Intelligence Electronic Warfare and Sensors, or PEO IEW&S, headquartered at APG, provides critical support for Soldiers through a functionally aligned organization, poised to deliver high quality materiel development for time-sensitive requirements or more deliberate support as needed by our wide range of customers.

ABERDEEN PROVING GROUND, Md. – Army network modernization cannot succeed without increased network security. As attacks on the nation’s military networks increase and the tactical cyber threat grows, so must our cyber offensive and defensive capabilities. Cyber, electronic warfare, known as EW, and network advancements will be key enablers to support Army force readiness and expeditionary deployabilty.
ABERDEEN PROVING GROUND, Md. – In less than a decade, Army connectivity of enterprise and tactical systems and devices has increased exponentially thus necessitating the Army’s research, development and engineering community to protect connected networks and devices so Soldiers can complete their missions.
ABERDEEN PROVING GROUND, Md. – The successful invasion of Iraq across unchartered and unfriendly desert terrain during Operation Desert Storm featured the coalition’s new, “secret weapon” – GPS. Since 1991, Soldiers conducting tactical operations have relied heavily on GPS’ position, navigation and timing, or PNT, information.
ABERDEEN PROVING GROUND, Md. — The Army’s push to create a leaner, more rapidly deployable force is driving the need for innovative solutions that allow commanders to establish their command posts faster than ever.
FORT POLK, Louisiana– After parachuting in under the cover of darkness, punching through the clouds and descending on the dense Louisiana vegetation below during a Joint Forcible Entry exercise, Soldiers of the 3rd Brigade Combat Team, 82nd Airborne Division (3/82) were connected and communicating within minutes of hitting the ground.
