The Texas A&M University Board of Regents approved the construction of a $130-million Army Futures Command center, a combat development complex at the university’s RELLIS Campus in Bryan, TX. The complex is expected to be completed by June 2021. The 2,000-acre RELLIS Campus, was once the site of Bryan Air Force Base, on SH 47, on the east side of Texas A&M University.
The combat development complex will include a kilometer-long tunnel for the university’s engineering department. Also on hand will be laboratories, accelerator space and offices for the Army Futures Command.
The Texas A&M system is dedicating $50 million to the building, as well as another $30 million in infrastructure improvements. Meanwhile, the Texas Legislature appropriated $50 million to establish a proving ground, which the Texas A&M Engineering Experiment Station will implement as an outdoor testing area to design, analyze and validate new technologies.
