The Defense Information Systems Agency has rebranded its Continental U.S. Field Command organization to the name of “Global Operations Command” as DISA seeks to expand the organization’s mission set.
Global Operations Command will be responsible for the defense of networks that support 46 enterprise missions and services and the DISA-managed portion of the Defense Department‘s information networks, DISA said Monday.
DGOC will also act as a Tier II computer network defense service provider for 108 mission partners that include five combatant commands, 15 defense agencies and organizations, nine cleared defense contractors and two federal agencies.
“The name change more accurately reflects the true mission of the organization, which is global defense and operations of DISA’s portion of the DOD Information Networks,” said Army Col. Paul Craft, DGON’s commander.
“Our mission extends far beyond the continental United States.”
The command will be housed in a 164,000-square-foot, $100 million facility that is scheduled to have workers move in from June and a ribbon-cutting ceremony in August.
“[DGOC] is the service manager for the agency’s worldwide Internet protocol infrastructure and services that makeup the Defense Information System Network, to include the non-secure IP Router Network, Secret IP Router Network, and IP voice and video services,” added Scott Rodakowski, civilian deputy director of DISA’s operations center.
