GCN : May 2015
26 GCN MAY 2015 • GCN.COM case study ASC.ARMY.MIL BY ADRIENNE ANDERSON IT INFRASTRUCTURE As the Army consolidates operations at two South Korean bases, Col. Mollie Pearson’s team is tackling some daunting IT challenges What it takes to build DOD networks at scale Building a plane while flying it seems simple compared to the Yongsan Relocation Plan and Land Partnership Plan. The Defense De- partment’s largest base-relocation pro- gram seeks to “right-size” the U.S . and South Korean forces. The project consolidates U.S . forces into two primary hubs in South Korea — U.S . Army Garrisons Humphreys and Walker — and involves moving 20,000 people and consolidating 104 posts, camps and stations without disrupting IT services. Col. Mollie Pearson’s team is respon- sible for building the network infra- structure to provide data, voice and video to more than 500 buildings at Camp Humphreys. The $828 million project requires the migration of 65 command, control, communications, computers and intelligence (C4I) sys- tems; a new communications center; and roughly 20,000 miles of conduit and cable. Besides creating a consolidated foot- print for U.S . forces, the project will provide new and enhanced capabilities for the IT transport infrastructure and command centers for the Joint Informa- tion Environment, which is a shared IT infrastructure and enterprise services approach designed to increase security and improve IT efficiencies. As part of the transition to Camp Humphreys, Pearson’s team is tasked with modernizing and migrating exist- ing systems and services, and installing new ones without disrupting classified and unclassified communications. Pearson, who is product manager for Power Projection Enablers in the Army’s Fort Belvoir, Va. - based Program Execu- tive Office for Enterprise Information Systems, cited several challenges that Col. Mollie Pearson and Lt. Col. Eddie Galarza met with representatives from the U.S. Forces Korea Relocation Office during an Industry Day for DOD’s largest base-relocation plan. 0515gcn_026-027.indd 26 4/30/15 9:43 AM
