From Cecom to CELCMC

ATLANTIC CITY, N.J. — Army officials might change the name of Communications-Electronics Command (Cecom) as part of the service's new acquisition community reorganization.

Cecom could become Communications-Electronics Life Cycle Management Command (CELCMC) soon, an Army official said yesterday at the Network Centric Operations 2004 conference. The new Cecom commander hinted of the name change in a letter to attendees in the conference's program.

"The CELCMC will ensure a unified vision across our acquisition, research and development, and sustainment communities as we work together to serve the warfighter throughout the total life cycle of command, control, communications, computers, intelligence, surveillance and reconnaissance systems and equipment," said Maj. Gen. Mike Mazzucchi, commanding general of Cecom.

Mazzucchi signed the letter as commanding general of CELCMC. He said the newly established command will link more closely Cecom; the Program Executive Office for Command, Control and Communications-Tactical; the Program Executive Office for Intelligence, Electronic Warfare and Sensors; and the Communications-Electronics Research, Development and Engineering Center.

Mazzucchi became Cecom commander in June. But he did not resign as program executive officer of the Program Executive Office for Command, Control, Communications-Tactical, the service's warfighting information technology organization.

This summer, Army officials announced they would restructure the service's acquisition community to better manage programs from development to fielding and to shrink the management structure.
