ort Huachuca is headquarters of the US Army Intelligence Center and Army Network Enterprise Technology Command (NETCOM)/9th Army Signal Command. It’s also headquarters of the Army Military Affiliate Radio System (MARS) and Joint Interoperability Test Command (JITC) and Electronic Proving Ground (EPG), as well as the Joint Interoperability Certifier and the only non-Service Operational Test Agency for Information Technology (IT)/National Security Systems.
