Army plans smart city technology pilots to move toward ‘installations of the future’


Between services and the technologies used to access them, the Army believes today’s military bases will look very different 20 years from now. Officials are just beginning to explore how to establish the technological underpinnings of what they term “installations of the future.”

The premise was born two years ago out of the realization that ongoing pressure on the military’s installations budgets may mean the Army can’t sustain the service delivery models it uses today. But now officials are actively looking at the specific technologies they want to employ to make bases more efficient. The Army aims to deliver services in new ways, and perhaps, in some cases, to stop providing certain services altogether.
