Battle Command Training Center
FORT BRAGG, N.C. – Fort Bragg’s newest Battle Command Training Center was constructed by the U.S. Army Corps of Engineers Savannah District and prime contractor W.G. Yates and Sons of Biloxi, Miss. The $28 million, 148,000-square foot facility (pictured here on Sept. 12, 2012) will support several different levels of battle command training for contingency force units and various combat and support units. It will support individual and collective digital training and battle staff training using constructive simulations with command, control, communications, computers and intelligence interoperability. The project features photovoltaic solar panels on the roof that produce 25 kilowatts of electrical power using renewable energy. It also includes solar technology to heat the facility’s water.
