Non-BRAC Growth

In addition to the organizations moving to Fort Meade as part of the BRAC process, Fort Meade continues to expand to meet the constantly changing demands of a complex military fighting force. Among those changes:
cyber command shield Cyber Command - In 2009, the Department of Defense announced the establishment of a new joint command to streamline cyber efforts across the armed forces, and to protect the DoD’s computer networks from growing threats. This new cyber command will be headquartered at Fort Meade, and include elements from each military service. It's expected to have more than 1,100 military, civilian and contractor positions within three years.
new 902nd Military Intelligence Group HQ building 902nd Military Intelligence Group HQ - In 2006, the headquarters of the 902nd MI was destroyed by fire. Construction is under way now for a new $34 million building with more than 100,000 square feet to house the 902nd. That construction is expected to be complete by August 2011
The Defense Information School The Defense Information School Expansion - Public affairs officers, Armed Forces Radio and Television broadcasters, combat camera print and video documentarians, and other DoD visual information experts all have one thing in common. They train at the Defense Information School, part of the Defense Media Activity. To meet the needs of the military services, DINFOS is going to train an additional 300 students per year. To allow for the additional classrooms required, the school house will expand by 60,000 square feet in a $36 million construction project expected to start by fiscal year 2012. Relocatable trailers will be used as extra classrooms while that project is underway.
Construction on new temporary Warrior Transition Unit and Soldier and Familiy Assistance Center Temporary Warrior Transition Unit and Soldier and Family Assistance Center - The WTU and SFAC were established as part of the Army’s commitment to caring for its wounded, ill and injured Soldiers and their families during and after the medical recovery process. As a result of the continuing growth at Fort Meade, the required office space on the installation was extremely limited. The installation partnered with the USO and the Fort Meade Alliance to locate and furnish modular facilities to house these vital functions and ensure full support to the region’s Warriors in Transition and their families.
