Welcome to Fort Huachuca, home to the U.S. Army Intelligence Center of Excellence, the U.S. Army Network Enterprise Technology Command (NETCOM)/9th Army Signal Command and more than 48 supported tenants representing a diverse, multiservice population.

Located in Cochise County, in southeast Arizona, about 15 miles north of the border with Mexico, Fort Huachuca is an Army installation with a rich frontier history. Established in 1877, the Fort was annexed in 1971 by the city of Sierra Vista and declared a national landmark in 1976.

Today Fort Huachuca is the largest employer in Cochise County and the largest economic contributor in Arizona. The Fort develops and tests Command, Control, Communications, Computers, Combat Systems, Intelligence, Surveillance and Reconnaissance capabilities; delivers intelligence and unmanned aircraft systems training and education; designs, develops and integrates intelligence capabilities, concepts and doctrine; and provides world-class quality support services to the Huachuca community to enable mission command in support of Army and Joint operations and the continued evolution of Fort Huachuca.

The Fort’s unique environment encompasses 946 square miles of restricted airspace and 2,500 square miles of protected electronic ranges, key components to the national defense mission.



The Air Support Operations Center AN/TSQ-209 Communication Central system was designed and deployed by the National Security Division?s Integrated Defense Systems. The Air Support Operations Center or ASOC is an Air Force unit collocated with the Land Component Commander, responsible for managing air assets in support of ground maneuver. By January 2001, the INEEL has fielded six units, two each at Shaw Air Force Base in South Carolina, Fort Hood in Texas and Sullivan Barracks in Viernheim, Germany. Six more were in the works for 604 th ASOS at Camp Red Cloud in Korea, 111 th ASOS at Ft. Lewis, Washington and for the 182 ASOS Unit in Illinois. Each base receives two units for tactical ?leap-frogging?. One AN/TSQ-209 could be deployed and as the troops advance, the second would follow the maneuver units as the corps moves forward and become the primary unit.
