SPAWAR breaks ground on $9.5M tech lab
Tuesday - 5/11/2010, 8:30am EDT
- The Space and Naval Warfare System Center Atlantic is growing. SPAWAR broke ground yesterday on a $9.5 million engineering laboratory. The Charleston Post and Courier reports the 20,220-square-foot building will house several dozen information technology engineers who work on high-tech military initiatives such as cyber security. As the high-tech electronic procurement hub for the Navy and other federal customers, SPAWAR also employs roughly 3,300 federal civil service workers and 9,000 private-sector workers. The new facility is expected to open in the summer of 2011.
- The Senate has confirmed Army General Keith Alexander to lead the US Cyber Command. The vote was unanimous. The Cyber Command will head efforts to secure Pentagon networks. Alexander also leads the National Security Agency, and that has raised concerns about militarizing cyberspace. But during confirmation hearings, Alexander said that won't happen. The Cyber Command will be housed at Fort Meade in Maryland.
