Spc. Dillon Anton, USA, and Spc. Matthew Perry, USA, 601st Aviation Support Battalion, 1st Infantry Division, Combat Aviation Brigade, set up and validate a Combat Service Support Very Small Aperture Terminal (CSS-VSAT) in preparation of Combined Support Exercise at Storck Barracks, Germany.

For more than a decade, the U.S. Army has been improving the Logistics Information Systems Network, which is specifically designed to sustain and maintain warfighters deployed across the globe. However, although the technology has far exceeded the service’s goals, today’s management practices are almost identical to those used when the network was created in 2004. With the increase in cybersecurity policies and advances in capabilities, the need for highly trained, designated network and systems administration personnel has become abundantly clear, and the requirement for better management processes even more evident.
