This integrated picture improves a battlegroup's effectiveness by enabling longer range, cooperative, or layered engagements. Today's CEC benefits from advancements in commercial and specialized technologies, as well as from the experience and expertise of the IDS team, continually innovating to advance capability and performance.

Sports fans should note that St. Pete is home to the Tampa Bay Rays, Buccaneers, and Lightning. It's also the Spring Training site for the Toronto Blue Jays and the Philadelphia Phillies.
