Northwestern Division Military Missions

The U.S. Army Corps of Engineers, Northwestern Division's current military construction mission, one of the largest since World War II, consists of an average annual program of $25 billion (FY10-19) to meet the demand created by growth in the Army, and global restationing.
On Aug. 6, the US Air Force Academy broke ground on a multimillion-dollar construction project to build a cyber center that will bolster the Air Force and Space Force’s cyber war fighting capabilities. When complete, the 33,000 square-foot Madera Cyber Innovation Center will feature state-of-the-art cyber-tech classrooms, labs, research and design spaces for cadets to explore advanced computer and cyber science concepts, and facilitate collaboration with industry, academia and local partnerships.
Several facilities including hangars, dormitories, an air traffic control tower, and fuselage trainer were built for the KC-46A Pegasus program.
