Communications-Electronics Research, Development, and Engineering Center develops and integrates C4ISR technologies that enable the warfighter to sense the battle space; deny and disrupt enemy efforts; and remain “connected” to achieve and sustain information superiority, strike with decisive lethality and survive. Our many government-unique and world-unique facilities support a broad range of technical areas that leverage expertise in the radio/digital/electronic realms of information technology and systems engineering including command and control, communications, computers, electronic warfare, and sensors. CERDEC is headquartered at Aberdeen Proving Ground, Md. with facilities at Joint Base McGuire-Dix-Lakehurst, N.J. and Fort Belvoir, Va. A sampling of CERDEC’s state-of-the-art facilities and equipment are its PD C4ISR & Network Modernization Experimentation Venue, Joint Satellite Engineering Center; Semiconductor “Microfactory” in its Night Vision & Electronic Sensors Directorate; Audio/Interactive Speech Technology Laboratory; Power Sources Battery Test Facility; Intelligence and Information Warfare Center of Excellence; and Infosphere Security Laboratory.”
