Army Seeks to Implement ‘Digitized’ Base Systems for Soldiers

The U.S. Army seeks to implement a digitized system for its bases designed to improve the life experience of soldiers and their families on outposts, as well as regulate the housings' energy usage, Federal News Network reported Thursday.

Jordan Gillis, assistant secretary of the Army for installations, energy and environment, said the service branch is looking to digitize its installations and incorporate technologies such as frictionless security and proper implementation of facility operations and building occupancy.

He added that the service branch envisions a military housing system wherein a soldier's family would not have to undergo the stress of making constant life adjustments every time they get uprooted from one installation to the next.

The Army has plans to conduct a discussion with the private sector on how to facilitate its initiatives, with the service branch aiming for a meeting in November.
