Software Capabilities Take off With New Facility

July 2008
By Rita Boland

The construction of a new building is expected to transform existing infrastructure into a cutting-edge facility that will solidify the Warner Robins Air Logistics Center as the electronic warfare center of excellence for the U.S. Air Force and the entire U.S. Defense Department. The building will stand in the middle of three already constructed structures and link them, offering a physical connectedness that is lacking among the experts working there. Officials associated with the effort anticipate increased collaboration as well as the ability to take on new and increased workload because of the extra space available.
