Army salutes knowledge management projects

The Army CIO Office honored seven programs with the coveted Army Knowledge Award last week during the Directorates of Information Management conference in Fort Lauderdale, Fla.

The award recognizes exemplary examples of knowledge management initiatives that support the development of enterprisewide solutions to improve situational awareness, according to Army officials.

The Future Combat Systems Advanced Collaborative Environment, developed by Boeing Co. and Science Applications International Corp. as the lead systems integrator, won in the E-Army category. ACE is the digital environment that enables the design, development, test, production and support of the 18 individual weapon systems that will make up FCS.

'Army senior leadership has issued a policy announcing their intention to build on the success of the FCS ACE in developing an Army ACE that provides a common collaborative digital environment across Army acquisition programs,' according to an Army release.
