USAISEC provides systems engineering, installation, integration, implementation, and evaluation support for communications and information technology systems worldwide providing capabilities to Army organizations, combatant commanders, DOD agencies, and federal agencies in support of the warfighter. Examples of current and future projects: 1) The Defense Satellite Communications System and other space-based communication: ISEC provides engineering support to the deployments of fixed and mobile earth stations for the Army, Navy, Air Force and other government uses on a worldwide basis. Our projects include cutting edge technologies in radio communications, electromagnetics and signal processing. 2) Command and Control Systems: ISEC provides state-of-the-art command and control (C2) engineering and integration of systems and facilities for US Commanders and members of other federal agencies in facilities such as the Pentagon, Germany, Florida, Korea and other locations world-wide. These facilities are the nerve centers of military operations in peacetime and during combat operations. They are the melding point of data from many communications and intelligence sources presented with the very latest in video technology. 3) Installation Information Infrastructure Modernization Program (I3MP): Army faculties throughout the world are like small cities, requiring every service of any American city. The Information Systems Engineering Command engineers the voice, data, video and other networks on every Army post. Ranging from the latest in optical fiber systems, the latest IP and security technologies, to airfield and navigation aids, to telephony, if it provides information technology, ISEC does it. USAISEC offers a Telework program and an Alternate Work Schedule. It is USAISEC's policy to provide equal employment opportunities to all persons, to prohibit discrimination in employment because of race, color, religion, sex, national origin, age, or handicap and to promote the full realization of equal employment opportunity through a continuing affirmative program. USAISEC has an aggressive Safety Program to increase safety awareness. USAISEC is committed to providing a work environment free from sexual harassment. Employment with us offers benefits that are comparable to or better than private industry including a generous leave policy, health & life insurance, retirement system and 401K type retirement program, paid holidays, opportunities for worldwide travel, flexible work schedules and challenging and diverse work. Surrounded by mountain ranges and near the San Pedro River, Sierra Vista offers good opportunities for bird watching, hiking and scenic drives. It is also near the newly opened Kartchner Caverns. Southeastern Arizona is a premier destination for birders and other nature enthusiasts. The combination of mild climate, proximity to the Mexican border and diverse habitats, including 9000-foot mountains and the last free-flowing river in the Southwest, make southeastern Arizona a major hotspot for many rare and unusual animals and plants. Lands managed by the U.S. Forest Service, Bureau of Land Management, National Park Service, Arizona Game and Fish Department, and The Nature Conservancy offer a variety of wildlife viewing opportunities. Located 70 miles southeast of Tucson, Sierra Vista has earned the title “Hummingbird Capital of the U.S.” The town's name means "Mountain View" in Spanish, and accurately describes its picturesque setting at the base of the Huachuca Mountains. Fort Huachuca is located 75 miles southeast of Tucson, Arizona. We are nestled at the foot of the Huachuca Mountains and enjoy the benefit of some of the best climate in the United States. USAISEC employs about 570 personnel broken into research and engineering groups of approximately 70 people each, and expects hiring and overall employee numbers to remain equal between interested STEM disciplines. Each year USAISEC hires about 80 new personnel.
