Army Cyber Command (ARCYBER) has completed its move into a new $366 million headquarters in Georgia as it consolidates soldiers and civilian hackers under one roof.
The Army selected Fort Gordon near Augusta, Georgia, as its permanent location for operational and cost reasons.
The Army plans to initially bring active-duty military, government civilian and contract personnel jobs to Augusta.
Before selecting Fort Gordon, the Army reportedly evaluated its ability to support U.S. Cyber Command-directed missions and other operational factors such as installation capacity, environmental impacts, and human resource considerations.
The move to Fort Gordon is aimed at co-locating 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.
ARCYBER was established in 2010 and is so far temporarily split-located in seven government buildings and leased space across the national capital region.
