NSA PRESS RELEASE
NSA/CSS Georgia Groundbreaking Advances National Security
(Ft. George G. Meade, MD) - The National Security Agency/Central Security Service (NSA/CSS) broke ground for its new operations facility at NSA/CSS Georgia (NSAG) on March 26, 2007. NSAG's expansion is one facet of the Agency's efforts to evolve a global cryptologic enterprise that is resilient, agile, and effective in prosecuting a dynamic threat environment.
LTG Keith B. Alexander, Director, NSA/Chief, CSS has great expectations for the new facility, "This building, its design, its infrastructure, and its capabilities will support and protect an unparalleled intellectual combine."
The new operations facility will provide NSAG's cryptologic professionals the tools necessary to rapidly access, display, share, and collaboratively interpret data from a broad variety of sources and at various classification levels. Enhanced capabilities, coupled with ongoing policy changes and cultural evolution, will eliminate physical, virtual, and systemic barriers to information sharing. The new state-of-the-art facility will replace the existing facility and will also accommodate the recent growth in the civilian and military workforce at NSAG.
Colonel Stephen G. Fogarty, NSAG's Commander, foresees a bright future for NSAG. "This new facility will enable us to strengthen NSAG intelligence support to our nation's policy makers and military leaders," he said. "The intelligence NSAG provides is critical to national security, and we are very proud of what we accomplish every day."
As a leader in the net-centric cryptologic enterprise, NSAG conducts signals intelligence operations, trains the cryptologic workforce, and enables global communications-all critical to the success of the nation's decision-makers, combatant commands, and deployed U.S./Coalition forces.
The NSA/CSS, headquartered at Fort George G. Meade, Maryland, leads the intelligence community in delivering responsive, reliable, effective and expert signals intelligence and information assurance products and services, and enables network warfare operations to gain a decisive information advantage for the United States and its allies.
