Camp Roberts, California. Projects at Fort Buckner, Japan,
and Camp Humphreys, South Korea, are in the early planning and design stages.
Each facility affords Army SETS operations and maintenance staff reliable and secure structures with the necessary
space to perform daily missions to keep the service’s SATCOM working around the clock. Collectively, the new SETS
will set up the Army’s global network to accommodate and
leverage developing SATCOM technologies for decades to
come. “Technology moves very quickly,” Col. Stein says.
“When I joined the Army, we were cleaning radio connectors with pencil erasers. The world is changing, and we must
change with it or be left behind.”
