Army Network Upgrades Improve Sunny Point Readiness

By Scott Sundsvold

The Department of the Army’s Product Manager for Installation Information Infrastructure Modernization Program (PdM-I3MP) completed a network modernization project at Military Ocean Terminal Sunny Point near Brunswick County, North Carolina during the third quarter of 2018.

One of the largest military terminals in the world, Sunny Point provides a transfer point between rail, trucks, and ships for the import and export of weapons, ammunition, explosives and military equipment for the U.S. Army. As the country’s largest ammunition port, roughly 85 percent of the ammunition used in U.S. combat operations passes through Sunny Point.

This project is in the portfolio of Colonel Enrique Costas, who serves as the Project Manager for Defense Communications and Army Transmission Systems (PM DCATS) and manages the strategic satellite and terrestrial communications programs that support the Army, Joint Services, National Command Authority and combatant commanders. Colonel Costas says, “PdM-I3MP is modernizing the Army networks to enable the current fight and to prepare for the next fight. At Military Ocean Terminal Sunny Point, improved network infrastructure enables the necessary high-capacity data throughput to support the immense quantity of munitions passing through Sunny Point for our Soldiers operating across the globe.”

At Sunny Point, PdM-I3MP upgraded the Installation Campus Area Network (ICAN) Ethernet switches as part of an Army-wide effort with the Defense Information Systems Agency (DISA). The Army and DISA partnered on the network modernization initiative to enable Army installations to leverage DISA enterprise services, improving the foundational ICAN elements and providing the mission-critical capability required by the Warfighter.

Kevin Chinn, the acting PdM-I3MP deputy product manager, says, “Readiness remains the Army’s priority one. The Sunny Point projects supported Army readiness by modernizing, streamlining, standardizing, and hardening the Army network. These projects ensure that Sunny Point has continued, uninterrupted access to the Army’s network, while also reducing the footprint, reducing the attack surface and increasing throughput capacity to 10 gigabytes.”

The PdM-I3MP integrated project team modernized, streamlined and standardized Sunny Point’s network with 10 Gbps switches and routers as part of the over-arching initiative to improve the Army network. The initiative is referred to as Network Modernization – CONUS, or NETMOD-C.

Chinn says, “The Army is following industry best practices to increase the capacity of the network, which will enable Unified Communications (UC) services (VoIP, Chat, IM, Presence, VTC, etc.) with assured and sufficient bandwidth. These network modernizations increased the efficiency, security, predictability, and reliability of the network to ensure Soldiers have sufficient bandwidth to complete their mission.”

On the NETMOD-C team, William Richardson served as the project team lead, assisted by Barry Shambaugh and subject-matter-expert Thuan Phan, a PdM-I3MP computer networks engineer. Together, they planned and executed the network upgrade project. Assisted by Shambaugh, Richardson managed the day-to-day operations, coordinating and collaborating with PdM-I3MP’s industry partner, Vision Ability and Execution (VAE).

Richardson says, “This project was a great success, and we are satisfied with the end product. It directly increased the network capacity and improved the network security at Sunny Point, while setting the conditions for Sunny Point to benefit from DISA Enterprise Services.”

Phan says, "By employing Multi-Protocol Label Switching and other transport upgrades designed to exponentially increase the throughput of the Army network to installations like Sunny Point, the Army network is on its way to being a single, secure, standards-based network that enables global collaboration.”

On Nov. 14th, Project Manager (PM) Defensive Cyber Operations (DCO) will officially establish Product Manager (PdM) Cyber Analytics and Detection (CAD) during an Assumption of Charter at Fort Belvoir, Virginia.

The establishment of PdM CAD comes nine months after PM DCO began a complete organizational overhaul in mid-February 2018. The PM previously operated as Installation Information Infrastructure Communications and Capabilities (I3C2), before re-aligning its mission to focus on delivering defensive cyber capabilities. PM DCO will continue to be led by Col. Chad Harris.

“Standing up PdM CAD is one of the final pieces of our reorganization effort, and is a significant milestone as we move forward to provide comprehensive defensive cyber capabilities in support of our stakeholders,” said Col. Harris.

The PdM CAD portfolio will consist of software solutions to enable stakeholder defensive cyber mission planning and execution. Solutions will focus on Cyber Analytics, DCO Mission Planning (DCOMP), User Activity Monitoring/Insider Threat, Threat Emulation, and Threat Discovery. Responsibility for CAD will be granted to DCO newcomer, Lt. Col. Leilani Tydingco-Amarante.

“As the incoming PdM CAD, I look forward to building upon the strong team that already exists within DCO,” said Lt. Col. Tydingco-Amarante. “I was raised in the Army ranks to get missions done while also taking care of your people. That’s something that I will bring with me as I take on the PdM CAD position.”

Lt. Col. Tydingco-Amarante has 20 years of military service and began her career in the Signal Corps. After holding several staff and two Company Command positions, she was assessed into the Acquisition Corps with a focus in Program Management. Before arriving to take on her new position as PdM, Lt. Col. Tydingco-Amarante was assigned as a Program Analyst to the Deputy Under Secretary of the Army-Test and Evaluation.

“Lt. Col. Tydingco-Amarante has a reputation of being an outstanding leader who efficiently delivers results,” said Col. Harris. “She’s proven her ability to navigate obstacles to accomplish missions, and she has the kind of vigor needed to help CAD develop from its infancy stage.”

PM I3C2 Transitions to PM Defensive Cyber Operations

By DCO Public Affairs

Project Manager (PM) Installation Information Infrastructure Communications and Capabilities (I3C2) is realigning its mission in support of the Army’s newly defined vision for the network of the future.

The PM I3C2 originally established itself as the Army’s technology leader, providing global IT information infrastructure installation services and capability. In-mid February, I3C2 relinquished ownership of two of its sub-organizations; Product Manager (PdM) Power Project Enablers (P2E) and PdM Installation Information Infrastructure Modernization Program (I3MP). P2E and I3MP now operate under PM Defense Communications and Army Transmission Systems (DCATS). The relinquishment of these responsibilities allowed for increased responsibility in the Defensive Cyber Operations portfolio, and a key reorganization to prioritize delivering cyber capability to the Soldier at the speed of relevance.

As a part of the reorganization, the PM will officially be re-designated as PM Defensive Cyber Operations (DCO). Stakeholders will primarily consist of the U.S. Army Cyber Command (ARCYBER) and the Cyber Protection Brigade (CPB).

The transition from PM I3C2 to PM DCO will be marked in an observation event on October 26, 2018 at Fort Belvoir, Virginia. DCO will remain under the leadership of I3C2’s current PM, Col. Chad Harris.

"The transition from I3C2 to DCO is all about doing what’s best for our stakeholders, and for the Army,” said Col. Harris. “Reorganizing has postured our team for growth, and will enable us to focus on the defensive cyber operations mission.”

Four organizations will support the DCO mission: Product Manager (PdM) Cyber Platforms and Systems (CPS); PdM (Cyber Analytics and Detection (CAD); Director, Applied Cyber Technologies, and Product Lead Allied Information Technology (AIT).

As part of the shift in focus and mission, current Product Manager Defensive Cyber Operations LTC Scott Helmore will be renamed PdM CPS. A commissioning ceremony for Applied Cyber Technologies was previously held on Oct. 12, 2018, where Mr. Joe Kobsar assumed responsibility as Director. An additional ceremony will be held on Nov. 14, 2018, for the Assumption of Charter of PdM CAD by Lt. Col. Leilani-Tydingco-Amarante. PL AIT, which falls under the leadership of Mr. Andrew Strand, will continue to execute its mission within the portfolio in support of our strategic partners worldwide.

Kobsar, a retired Warrant Officer, served in the Army for 23 years. After retirement, Kobsar began his civilian career at the U.S. Communications Electronics Research, Development and Engineering Center (CERDEC) as an electronics engineer. He holds a bachelor’s degree in Computer Engineering, a master’s degree in Project Management, and is a member of the U.S. Army Acquisition Corps. The newly established charter will lead I3C2’s defensive cyber integration efforts through centralized hubs known as the Forge and the Armory. Both are physical locations at Fort Belvoir where I3C2, stakeholders, and industry can collaborate to develop, discuss, test, and store capability in support of defensive cyber operations.

The concept of the Forge has played an integral role in I3C2’s plan to innovatively provide capability to Soldiers at the speed of relevance. The premise of this plan is to streamline and increase the speed of the development phase by leveraging partnerships between the government and industry. According to I3C2 Project Manager, Col. Chad Harris, the Forge is where industry and the government can make innovation happen.

DCO System
During the ceremony, I3C2 displayed its latest prototype of the Deployable DCO System (DDS). The DDS is a small, deployable hardware system that enables Cyber Protection Teams to conduct cyber warfare operations in remote locations.

“Over the last eight months or so, I’ve seen the concept of the Forge begin to turn into a reality,” said Harris. “When operational in the coming months, the Forge will bring together the critical pieces of the user, industry, the program management, test and evaluation, and contract, to allow the rapid prototyping efforts that will help us quickly respond to emerging threats.”

During the ceremony, Kobsar thanked his family, including his wife, Alexandra, for their support throughout his military and civilian careers. Kobsar also expression his gratitude to his mentors, as well as Col. Harris.

Mr. Kobsar presents flowers
Joe Kobsar, Director Allied Cyber Technologies, presented his wife, Alexandra, with flowers, and thanked her for supporting his career for more than 30 years.

“Col. Harris, thank you for having the faith in me to be able to do something of this magnitude. I’m very humbled to be selected for this position,” said Kobsar.

Ceremony attendees included leaders from Program Executive Office Enterprise Information Systems U.S. Army Cyber Command (ARCYBER), the Army Cyber Protection Brigade (CPB) and the 91st Cyber Protection Brigade. ARCYBER and the CPB are I3C2’s primary stakeholders, and will have staff presence at the Forge.

Maj. Cedric Sherard Jr., Assistant Project Manager of DCO Tools
Maj. Cedric Sherard Jr., Assistant Project Manager of DCO Tools, attended the Assumption of Responsibility ceremony in support of Joe Kobsar, Director, Allied Cyber Technologies.

“We are really excited about the partnership,” said Col. Adam Volant, Commander of the 91st Cyber Brigade. “I think it provides an opportunity for us to integrate some of the talents and unique capabilities that are present in a corporate environment, into a military environment. That will certainly help us bridge any gaps that we have, so we’re excited, and frankly consider it a privilege that we be involved in something like this.”

Establishing ACT is not the last of I3C2’s organizational changes. The PM will officially change its name from I3C2, and begin operating as PM Defensive Cyber Operations (DCO) on October 26, 2018. In November, DCO will also establish a new Product Manager (PdM) called Cyber Analytics and Detection (CAD). CAD will be headed by Lt.Col. Leilani Tydingco-Amarante.

“I’m confident in our ability to make our goals a reality because of the team we’ve put in place, and the relationships we’ve built with our stakeholders and industry,” said Col. Harris. “We’re ready to move forward in our mission and do great things for the Army.”

Col. Costas pointed out the vital role LMR plays in supporting first responders, the reason the program was created. "Sometimes we learn by experiencing something tragic to change the way we do business,” he said. “People forget about the capability until bad things happen like 9/11, the Navy Yard attack, and the Fort Hood shooting." LMR is now a globally operated program comprised of 280 installations worldwide, fielding radio capability to disaster zones, and improving the time first responders have to react. Ms. Davidson’s leadership since 2011 has been essential to the success of the program.

Presenting Ms. Davidson with the Commander’s Award for Civilian Service, Col. Costas thanked her for superb leadership. "Ultimately, everything we do each day is in support of the Soldier. Kimberly, you have done a lot towards ensuring his and her safety,” he said. “The team, the quiet professional...has a significant impact for the Soldier forward deployed and in contact [with the enemy]. LMR is a trusted element of the formation because of Kimberly Davidson and the team behind her.”

The ceremony had an emotional and meaningful tone. "It's a bittersweet day, closing a chapter 14 years long, Ms. Davidson said.” I owe my deepest thanks to my team and industry partners. In seven years, we awarded 25 contracts and delivered 30,000 subscriber units. We changed the face of LMR from stand-alone systems to theater-wide enterprise systems." Ms. Davidson also thanked her husband and children for their love and support.

As the Acting Product Lead, Mr. Barnette accepts responsibility for the LMR program, "It's a great honor, the LMR team is a great team, and I have very big shoes to fill as Kimberly departs, he said."

I3MP Completes SOUTHCOM HQ Tech Refresh

By Scott Sundsvold, I3MP Strategic Communications

The Installation Information Infrastructure Modernization Program (I3MP) completed a Strategic Command Center (SCC) technology refresh for the U.S. Southern Command headquarters, located in Miami, Florida.

The U. S. Southern Command, or SOUTHCOM, is one of nine unified Combatant Commands in the Department of Defense. SOUTHCOM is a joint command responsible for security operations, cooperation and contingency planning for Central and South America (SCC).

Conventionally known as a joint command center, the SCC increases commander flexibility by providing a suite of sustained and standardized technical capabilities. The SCC technology refresh, referred to as a tech refresh, is a system level approach to managing the upgrade of information technology solutions employed by the Warfighter. I3MP served as the program management office, overseeing the customized SOUTHCOM SCC tech refresh.

Brendan Burke, acting deputy program executive officer for the Program Executive Office Enterprise Information Systems (PEO EIS), says, "The SOUTHCOM tech refresh supports Army Readiness by delivering tailored IT solutions that strengthen the cooperation of the U.S. Army with joint and multinational mission partners during SOUTHCOM security operations." I3MP is part of the Project Manager Defense Communications and Army Transmission Systems (DCATS) within the PEO EIS portfolio. Within I3MP, the SCC modernization is managed by Toni Freeland, product officer for command center modernizations.

Freeland and her team enable the Joint Warfighter and Mission Command Centers with emerging information technology and secure infrastructure systems, through lifecycle management, supporting Army Enterprise and Joint networks.

Freeland says, “Strategic command center modernization is more than updating outdated equipment. These modernizations are critical to security operations that enable SOUTHCOM to fight transregional threats."

Sarah Mullins, deputy product officer for command center modernizations, managed the complete SOUTHCOM tech refresh from the start with the aid of Richard Baker, the project team assist. Through multiple leadership changes and funding shortfalls, Mullins managed the design, engineering, installation, test, and delivery of an information infrastructure system, tailored specifically for SOUTHCOM.

For her part, Mullins says, “It takes a network to defeat a network. I3MP has upgraded the SOUTHCOM headquarters’ mission-critical IT network to enable the SOUTHCOM Warfighters to be the partner of choice in fighting transnational threat networks in Central and South America."

The SOUTHCOM SCC tech refresh provides the required IT solutions to support the Department of Defense's Global Command & Control System – Joint., which provides the communications, computing and data infrastructure that integrates accurate combat support information into a common presentation of data available to the warfighter from a single computer using the Common Operational Picture - Combat Support Environment.

The delivery of this remarkable network was made possible by the strong support of I3MP's project partners: the U.S. Southern Command Headquarters, the U.S. Army Information Systems Engineering Command, Army Contracting Command – Rock Island, and LGS Innovations. By incorporating best-in-class commercial and custom technologies, this team provided the strong leadership and technical expertise needed to avoid disruption of SOUTHCOM security operations during this tech refresh.

PM Installation Information Insfrastructure – Communications and Capabilities (I3C2) asked, and Industry answered!

By Brittney Brown, I3C2

Last week, I3C2 hosted a series of Collaboration Days with technology industry experts. The project manager, along with its stakeholder, the Cyber Protection Brigade, articulated various project technical requirements. In return, Industry provided feedback on how the PM can achieve maximum results through the solicitation process.

View the photo album to learn more about their discussion on developing rapid cyber solutions.

The PM hosted Collaboration Days for two of its product offices; PdM Cyber Platforms and Systems (CPS) and PdM DCO Cyber Analytics and Detection (CAD). “We’re (PM I3C2) about solving problems,” said Col. Chad Harris. “Problems come at Soldiers at a rapid pace, and we need teams that can attack those problems as they’re presented.”
DCO_Cyber_Monday2.jpg
More than 30 vendors attended the Collaboration Days held at the Community Center at Fort Belvoir, Virginia. Additional attendees included the Army Contracting Command Rock Island (ACC-RI), Mr. Russ Fenton of the U.S. Army Training and Doctrine Command (TRADOC), and Soldiers from the Cyber Protection Brigade.
DCO_Cyber_Monday3.jpg
Assistant Product Manager (APM) Kyle Tucker kicked off the series with the Deployable DCO Systems (DDS) and Garrison DCO Platform (GDP) follow-up briefing. GDP and DDS are hardware systems that run cyber software and enable cyber protection teams (CPT) to conduct cyber warfare operations. The GDP is a large, stationary system that will mostly be used by Soldiers conducting operations on post. The DDS is a smaller, deployable version of the GDP will enable CPTs to conduct defensive cyber operations in austere environments. PdM CPS held an initial GDP/DDS Collaboration Day in July 2018.
“The government is looking industry to use innovation when developing solutions to the Army’s cyber requirements,” said Kyle Tucker, an APM for PdM Cyber Protection Systems. “Because of this, the United States government will provide industry with a technical approach to meet requirements, rather than the actual solutions.”
DCO_Cyber_Monday4.jpg
Former Assistant Program Manager (APM) Maj. Shakena Evans briefed the Defensive Cyber Operations Mission Planning (DCOMP) requirements to Industry on August 7, 2018, in the Community Center at Fort Belvoir.
