CECOM is The Critical Link that ensures the global readiness of the complex, networked C4ISR systems and capabilities that provide our joint forces with the advanced information and technology they need to communicate on today's battlefield. CECOM adapts, strengthens and sustains the critical C4ISR systems that joint warfighters rely on - allowing them to operate, fight and win anywhere, against any foe, at any moment.
Headquartered at Aberdeen Proving Ground, Md., CECOM is comprised of a dedicated and highly-skilled workforce of approximately 13,000 military, civilian and contract personnel across five subordinate organizations. The joint expertise of these organizations makes CECOM the 'one-stop shop' for all of the warfighter's C4ISR needs.
Designated a life cycle management command, subordinate to the Army Materiel Command, CECOM provides The Critical Link to sustaining C4ISR systems, equipment and capabilities across the C4ISR domain through providing training; field support for software modifications and software upgrades; logistics expertise; information assurance; joint network capabilities and interoperability certification functions to ensure the right equipment is in the right place at the right time.
CECOM's five subordinate organizations perform a variety of CECOM core functions, taking lead in their specialty areas of expertise, including:
Providing timely and cost-effective global C4ISR logistics support.
Testing, integrating and certifying information technology and national security systems to support the digital needs of our joint forces.
Providing life-cycle software solutions for weapons systems, as well as logistics, business and enterprise solutions in an international environment.
Designing, manufacturing, maintaining, repairing and overhauling dozens of electronic systems for our joint forces.
Securely replacing legacy systems and modernizing the information technology infrastructure on posts, camps and stations.
As part of the U.S. Army Materiel Command (AMC), CECOM is dedicated to providing our joint forces with the decisive edge in combat by integrating and sustaining a cutting-edge, global, Army Network that ensures unprecedented levels of visibility and communications - creating a common operating environment across our entire force.
As today's operating environment rapidly becomes increasingly complex and the need for effective communication solutions becomes more vital, now - more than ever - CECOM is The Critical Link.
