SCOTT AIR FORCE BASE, Ill. – With the snip of a giant scissors Gen. William M. Fraser III, commander, U.S. Transportation Command, opened the new USTRANSCOM Enterprise Integration Laboratory in Building 1700, March 16.
Assisting Fraser were James “Rob” Beutel, EIL director, and Brig. Gen. Gregory Touhill, director, USTRANSCOM Command, Control, Communications and Computer Systems directorate.
Prior to cutting the ribbon, Fraser said the EIL will help USTRANSCOM improve how the command performs the worldwide distribution and deployment missions. He also talked about the increase of cyber attacks on the USTRANSCOM network and computing systems.
According to Bill Howard, USTRANSCOM Change Management, the EIL’s mission is to provide a secure, state-of-the-art software development environment focused on expedient delivery of innovative solutions to address joint deployment and distribution challenges.
The EIL's dynamic, process-driven, mission-focused environment, which aligns with the USTRANSCOM Corporate Services Vision, enables process engineers, software developers, and functional process owners to collaborate on automated solutions that support fusion center and combat zone decision makers and operators worldwide who plan, prepare, execute and assess global distribution operations.
The EIL staff plans to provide efficient, secure development and delivery of innovative capabilities for the Joint Deployment and Distribution Enterprise.
