The Philippine Army Signal Regiment presented its transformation initiatives during the celebration of its 8th founding anniversary held at the Headquarters Army Signal Regiment today, May 15, 2019.
The ASR is the Army’s sole provider of Signal Support and Services. It aims to provide one network for the Philippine Army through its various transformation initiatives.
The Army Chief Lt. Gen. Macairog S. Alberto graced the event as the Guest of Honor and Speaker of the celebration themed “ASR@8: Transforming the Army Signal Regiment to provide One Network to the Philippine Army.”
One of the ASR’s thrusts is to institutionalize the Army Signal Doctrine in collaboration with the Office of the Assistant Chief of Staff for Command and Control Systems. It also continues to strengthen its organization, ensures the conduct of combat training of its troops, pursues the modernization program to acquire the latest Information and Communications Technology (ICT), and develop leaders and trains personnel to ensure that the regiment has the right man for the right job.
The regiment also acquired several ICT facilities and established networks and databases being maintained at secured locations that operate on a 24/7 basis.
All these transformation efforts ensure that the ASR is equipped with the right technology and facilities and have the skilled personnel ready to perform the mandate of the regiment.
“Your accomplishments will continue to enable stronger Army, particularly in cyber operations capability with the establishment of the Cyber Security Operations Center and Cyber Laboratory and the activation of the Network Enterprise Battalion,” said Alberto.
The Philippine Army command recognizes the vital role of the ASR and fully supports its transformation endeavors that greatly contributes to the Army’s journey to be a world class Army by 2028. Philippine Army
