US Army: Cyber Command Will be Located at Fort Gordon

The United States Army announced earlier this month that the Army Cyber Command (ARCYBER) Headquarters will be located at Fort Gordon, Ga, a move that brings together Army cyber and network operations under one commander for the first time in its history.

The United States Army announced earlier this month that the Army Cyber Command (ARCYBER) Headquarters will be located at Fort Gordon, Ga, a move that brings together Army cyber and network operations under one commander for the first time in its history.

Since being established in 2010, ARCYBER has been temporarily split across seven government buildings and leased space across the capital region.

The move to Fort Gordon will co-locate ARCYBER Headquarters with the Army’s Joint Forces Headquarters-Cyber and NSA-Georgia, placing the Army’s operational cyber headquarters with the majority its cyber mission forces.

The Army said it selected Fort Gordon as the permanent location for ARCYBER Headquarters for operational and cost reasons, noting that the consolidation would require 150 fewer personnel than other potential sites, as well as reduce military construction requirements and costs.

Establishing the Army Cyber Center of Excellence at Fort Gordon will begin by aligning Army cyber proponency within the U.S. Army Training and Doctrine Command, creating institutional unity and a focal point for cyber doctrine and capabilities development, training and innovation.

During its selection process, the Army evaluated factors including installation capacity, environmental impacts, and human resource considerations, while community input was also solicited and considered.

“Cyber threats are real, sophisticated, growing, and evolving,” said ARCYBER’s commanding general, Lt. Gen. Edward C. Cardon. “The Army’s decision demonstrates support for unity of command and the importance of cyber to our Army and our nation.”

ARCYBER will continue to have a command liaison element co-located with U.S. Cyber Command at Fort George G. Meade, Md, the US Army said.
