#FeatureFriday - We recently supported the migration of the U.S. Marine Corps’ entire Office IT equipment inventory of more than 188,000 computer assets from Windows 7 to Windows 10 operating system.

“The #SSCAtlantic Enterprise Staging and Warehousing team became a part of history as this was the largest single IT fielding effort in the Marine Corps to date," said Marine Corps Systems Command (MCSC) Portfolio Manager, Supporting Establishment Systems, Col. Benjamin Stinson.

Did you know that SSC Pacific, formerly the Navy Electronic Laboratory Center, operated a satellite communication facility in the Laguna Mountains at LaPosta for many years? Used to develop ship-to-ship and ship-to-shore communications, it also monitored solar disturbances during a number of NASA space flights! #SPAWAR, #SSCPACIFIC

Students from Charleston-area schools were able to beat the summer heat by participating in a cybersecurity camp last week. In an effort to inspire the next generation of scientists and engineers and to enable our nation to meet its cyber defense needs, this year’s camp continued the tradition of giving high school students hands-on skills and experience geared toward encouraging interest in science, technology, engineering and math (STEM) careers.
