Ryan McCarthy, undersecretary of the U.S. Army, has explained further details on the Futures Command headquarters location in Austin, Texas.

McCarthy and a tasked team visited the cities of Boston, Minneapolis-St. Paul, Raleigh-Durham and Philadelphia before ultimately deciding on Austin as home of the Futures Command, the Defense Department reported Friday.

The team selected Austin for the city’s proximity to science, technology, engineering and math; STEM investment; and inclination to private sector investment, among other criteria.

The Army is sending a six-member team to establish initial operating capability at the command’s location in Austin.

McCarthy said they plan to have the headquarters reach full operating capability within a year.
