The CECOM Life Cycle Management Command aspires to be the Army's premier Command, Control, Communications, Computers, Intelligence, Surveillance and Reconnaissance (C4ISR) capabilities provider. A subordinate of the Army Materiel Command (AMC), CECOM and its strategic partners are vital members of the new Materiel Enterprise, providing C4ISR systems and sustainment to Army forces through the Army Force Generation (ARFORGEN) process.
CECOM is presently located at Aberdeen Proving Ground, Maryland. CECOM is comprised of approximately 8,500 personnel across five organizations to include:
- Central Technical Support Facility (CTSF), Fort Hood, Texas
- Logistics and Readiness Center (LRC), Aberdeen Proving Ground, Maryland
- Software Engineering Center (SEC), Aberdeen Proving Ground, Maryland
- Tobyhanna Army Depot (TYAD), Tobyhanna, Pennsylvania
- U.S. Army Information Systems Engineering Command (USAISEC), Fort Huachuca, Arizona
CECOM is the warfighter's one-stop source for support of the communications-electronics systems and equipment they carry. From setting up headquarters and command and tactical operations centers in remote areas to installing and maintaining communications systems in vehicles and aircraft, CECOM supports warfighters throughout training activities, field support for modifications and upgrades, and logistical expertise to ensure the right equipment is in the right place at the right time. We're in a growth business as information age technology takes on an ever increasing role in modern warfare.
The C4ISR Materiel Enterprise is a subset of the Army's Materiel Enterprise; one of four Army Enterprises, which also include: Human Capital; Readiness; and Services and Infrastructure. The Materiel Enterprise is co-chaired by the Army Materiel Command (AMC) and the Assistant Secretary of the Army for Acquisition, Logistics and Technology, commonly referred to as ASA/ALT. The C4ISR Materiel Enterprise is made up six primary organizations, three from AMC and three from ASA/ALT.
