U.S. Sen. Richard Shelby (R-Ala.) today applauded the opening of the Software Engineering Directorate (SED) building at Redstone Arsenal. The facility will provide Redstone with laboratories, engineering work space, a high bay equipment test area and support administrative services. Senator Shelby was instrumental in securing $56.5 million for this facility.
“The SED building will provide support facilities for the Army’s expanding reliance on software automation and rapid data transfer across the full spectrum of materiel systems,” said Shelby. “As the number and complexity of unique software systems developed and supported at Redstone Arsenal continues to increase, so does the requirement for adequate facilities to support them. I am proud to have played a role in bringing this facility to Redstone.”
