The Navy and Army have opened a Wideband Satellite Communication Operations Center at Naval Computer and Telecommunications Area Master Station Pacific by Whitmore Village near Wahiawa, considered a great strategic spot.

It provides 24-hour satellite control for Department of Defense communications as well as commercial interests and is operated by the Army’s 53rd Signal Battalion.

The $25,376,000 facility was built to LEED (green) specifications by Watts Constructors of Honolulu.

“This new state-of-the-art building will enable the company’s world-class satellite communications support to the warfighter,” said Capt. Daniel Zisa of the battalion’s D Company. “We are excited to partner with the Navy in this endeavor.”

The center is linked to five similar sites worldwide.
