Army information technology officials started the Fort Campbell Network Upgrade in December 2003. They will complete the project in two parts: clients/servers and physical network, according to James Webb, director of the Directorate of Information Management at Fort Campbell, Ky.

The ongoing client/server portion includes computer workstations and servers operating Microsoft Corp. Windows XP and Active Directory, but he declined to comment further on the work, including the types of hardware and software installed, citing security concerns. "It's a joint effort between the soldiers, civilians and contractors assigned to Fort Campbell," Webb said.
