The National Security Agency/Central Security Service opened a new $286 million Cryptologic Center on Monday in Augusta, Ga.
The complex will provide cryptologic professionals with the latest state-of-the-art tools to conduct signals intelligence operations, train the cryptologic workforce and enable global communications, the agency said.
“This new facility will allow the National Security Agency to work more effectively and efficiently in protecting our homeland,” said Sen. Saxby Chambliss. “It will also attract more jobs to the Augusta area. The opening of this complex means that Georgians will play an even greater role in ensuring the safety and security of our nation.”
The new NSA/CSS Georgia Cryptologic Center is the latest step in the NSA’s efforts to further evolve a cryptologic enterprise that is resilient, agile and effective to respond to the current and future threat environment with a new facility opened this January in Hawaii. There were also upgrades made to the cryptologic centers in Texas and Denver.
