Engagement Theater Session 3: Expeditionary Signal Battalion-Enhanced (ESB-E) Update
- Room: Engagement Theater - Olmstead Exhibit Hall
Tuesday, August 20, 2019: 3:15 PM - 4:15 PM
The Army is piloting a new organizational design called the Expeditionary Signal Battalion-Enhanced (ESB-E), providing a current ESB (the 50th ESB-E, 35th Signal Brigade) with alternative tactical network equipment that is smaller, lighter, more resilient and expeditionary. Through the ESB-E pilot, Soldier feedback from training, operational and field exercises is helping shape future equipment solutions and force structure for the service's 24 ESBs. The 50th ESB-E's three companies are operating different sets of equipment so the Army can determine the salient characteristics needed to meet future ESB equipment requirements. This theater session will provide updates on the ESB-E pilot effort, lessons learned, equipping and acquisition approaches.
