Construction set for '16 on Army Cyber Command

Posted: Updated:

AUGUSTA, Ga. (AP) - The chief of staff for the U.S. Army Cyber Command says construction on their new headquarters at Fort Gordon is set to begin in 2016.

The Augusta Chronicle reports Col. Scott Sanborn said Friday that 280 military personnel and 380 civilian staff at Cyber Command have been notified of the upcoming move south.

The Army on Thursday announced it had selected Fort Gordon as the new permanent home of Cyber Command, whose mission is to defend military computer networks and conduct cyberwarfare operations. The command has never had a consolidated home, with its staff divided between several office buildings in the Washington area.

On Friday, the Augusta Economic Development Authority met to strategize how to identify suppliers and contractors who may now be interested in moving to the area.
