FORT SHAFTER — Senior communicators from across the Pacific converged on Oahu to attend a signal forum hosted by the 311th Signal Command (Theater), April 29-May 1.
“This week was instrumental, not only for the signal regiment, but for the various signal formations that support the tactical edge,” said Command Sgt. Maj. Travis Cherry, senior enlisted leader, 311th SC(T). “It was an enormous opportunity to discuss future plans, projects and concepts that will have a significant impact within the Pacific’s area of responsibility.
“The primary signalers within I Corps, 25th Infantry Division, as well as the Theater and Mission Enabling Commands, received quality information that will facilitate their efforts as we work towards transforming our camps, posts and stations to improve the C4I construct to enhance our warfighting capabilities,” he added.
Signal leaders from 311th SC(T), 1st Sig. Brigade, 516th Sig. Bde., U.S. Army-Japan and I Corps attended the forum. Communications representatives from Pacific Command, U.S. Army-Pacific, 8th Army, Network Enterprise Command and Army Cyber Command provided detailed briefings focused on key initiatives in the Pacific theater.
“This forum provides a great opportunity for key signal leaders from across the Pacific to come share best practices and discuss pertinent issues impacting this theater and the signal community,” said Maj. William Macugay, 311th SC(T) Enterprise Project Management officer.
Topics ranged from projects and priorities, the joint information environment, force design and the mission partner environment, to cyber protection teams.
The 311th SC(T) plans, builds, operates, defends and extends Army and joint networks throughout the Pacific theater to enable mission command for full-spectrum joint, interagency, intergovernmental and multinational operations across all joint operational phases.
As directed, 311th SC(T) supports cyberspace operations to ensure U.S./allied freedom of action in cyberspace.
