US Space and Naval Warfare Systems Command (SPAWAR) has delivered a scalable, enterprise information and communication system for a new joint headquarters facility to Commander, Combined Joint Task Force-Horn of Africa (CJTF-HOA) at Camp Lemonnier, Djibouti, the US Navy announced on 25 June.

The new system will deliver integrated C4ISR and information technology capabilities for the headquarters, joint intelligence center and joint operations center.

The new facility combines vital C4ISR functions that support USAFRICOM East Africa operations. The facility will support forward deployed CJTF-HOA staff, commanding officer, administrative, intelligence and operations personnel as well as Camp Lemonnier functions. It will also optimise the Joint Task Force commander's ability to execute missions by bringing together the functions into one location that are currently dispersed throughout the base

Dave McLaughlin, Space and Naval Warfare Systems Center Atlantic joint command and operations centre team lead, said: ‘We listened to the warfighter and developed a state-of-the-art facility that not only meets the needs of today, but is scalable in design for the needs of tomorrow. The C4ISR solution incorporates industry best practices while maintaining data integrity for system operation and administration and is aligned with projected future requirements for both command and operations centers.’

CJTF-HOA is a multinational task force dedicated to countering the spread of terrorism and supporting legitimate governments in the Horn of Africa region.
