The two-year-long effort to move the 117 laboratories that make up the Army’s Communications-Electronics Command (CECOM) at Fort Monmouth, N.J., to Aberdeen Proving Ground (APG), Md., is essentially complete, CECOM reported.
“The bulk of the mission is now at APG,” said Michael Vetter, CECOM’s director of logistics and engineering.
The most difficult challenge for the move team was packing up and reconstituting labs that had been developed over 93 years. Also, some CECOM elements moving to Aberdeen came from Fort Belvoir, Va. Ultimately the team achieved its goal of minimizing disruptions to the command’s work.
Fort Monmouth will officially become inactive on Sept. 13; CECOM is scheduled to dedicate its new campus at Aberdeen Sept. 15.
