Web site: www.eis.army.mil/ITS.asp
Phone: (703) 614-9979

Project Summary
Project Director Information Technology System's (PD ITS) mission is to renovate and modernize all Pentagon voice, data and video systems in support of the military services, the Office of the Secretary of Defense (OSD), and DoD command and control (C2) and operations centers.

The U.S. Army is the executive agent for the renovation and modernization of Pentagon IT systems and infrastructure in conjunction with the comprehensive Pentagon Renovation. PD ITS is charged with performing this $1.3 billion initiative on behalf of the Army.

Description
In coordination with the Pentagon Renovation and Construction Program Office (PENREN), ITS is overhauling renovated Pentagon-tenant organizations' incompatible IT systems and implementing modern, network-centric systems and infrastructure to support the Pentagon as an enterprise. Specifically, ITS is renovating the Pentagon's voice, data and video systems to provide the building's 25,000+ workforce, the Secretary of Defense, the Joint Staff, the Military Service Operations Centers, and the C2 community with: a Universal IT design and configuration for all Pentagon office space;  structured and documented wiring and cabling; modernized, integrated command and operations center infrastructure; common physical IT infrastructure; and a centrally managed communications and information backbone architecture.

In addition, ITS provides IT design and implementation support to the Pentagon's Command Communications Survivability Program and the Alternate Sites Program (external sites throughout the National Capital Region) to provide world-class, secure IT infrastructure for the national defense headquarters, C2 and operations centers, and senior decision makers.

Currently, ITS is engaged in the renovation of the Pentagon's Wedge 3 area. ITS has already hit a high point with its efforts in Wedge 3, recently completing the Basement Consolidated Server Room (B-CSR), which users blade-server technology to consolidate data from 25,600 legacy servers into a 3,000 square-foot space. The legacy servers originally occupied more than 64,000 square feet of space in the Pentagon, and 40,000 square feet of space has already been returned to tenant organizations as a result of the B-CSR.

ITS will continue to work in close coordination with PENREN to renovate the Pentagon through the 2010 Congressionally mandated deadline.
