Army gears up for next NIE

Second Heavy Brigade Combat Team, 1st Armored Division soldiers provide full-time vehicle and system integration support in the months leading up to the Army's Network Integration Evaluations (NIEs). The October-November NIE, dubbed 13.1, is the fourth iteration in a series of semi-annual, soldier-lead field exercises designed to further integrate and mature the Army's tactical communications network. Much of this work is performed at the Integration Motor Pool, located at Fort Bliss, Texas (shown here). Photo credit: Travis McNiel, System of Systems Integration Direction
