DID has more on the key role Fort Monmouth plays in the Army’s Team C4ISR…
Fort Monmouth is the center for the development of the Army’s Command and Control, Communications, Computers, Intelligence, Sensors and Reconnaissance (C4ISR) systems. Much of the Army’s research and development of these systems is done at Fort Monmouth by members of the Army’s Team C4ISR.
Several of the C4ISR systems currently being used in Iraq, Afghanistan, and for homeland defense were developed at Fort Monmouth. Team C4ISR equips U.S. troops with technology by providing the architectural framework and systems engineering to ensure joint interoperability and integration across the battlespace. The organizations that make up Team C4ISR are collocated at Fort Monmouth. The team carries out its mission through a collaborative process of technology, lifecycle development, acquisition, and logistics.
In 2005, the Base Realignment and Closure (BRAC) Commission endorsed the recommendations made by the Department of Defense to close Fort Monmouth. Accordingly, Fort Monmouth will close no later than Sept. 15/11. The majority of the organizations and personnel now operating at Fort Monmouth will relocate to Aberdeen Proving Ground, MD and Fort Belvoir, VA.
