NSA/CSS Unveils New Hawaii Center

The National Security Agency/Central Security Service has completed building a new regional operations center in Hawaii. Named the CAPT Joseph J. Rochefort Building. The $358 million project is geared to further integrate national security efforts, according to officials formally opening the center.

The new building will provide cryptology professionals with the tools necessary to better access and collaboratively interpret data from a broad variety of sources at various classification levels. Moreover, its enhanced capabilities will augment work that will still be carried out in the original center – eliminating physical, virtual, and other barriers to information sharing, according to the NSA.

NSA/CSS has had an operations center in Hawaii for more than 14 years. The original facility was first built during World War II. The original center is adjacent to Schofield U.S. Army Barracks. The new center is a part of the Joint Base Pearl Harbor Hickam Annex.
