Pentagon 'Start-up' Opens Its First Satellite Office
The Defense Digital Service brings in civilian and military personnel for two-year “tours of duty.” Its first satellite office opened on Nov. 20 in Augusta, Georgia, and was named “Tatooine,” after Luke Skywalker’s home planet in the Star Wars series. It’s located within the Georgia Cyber Center, a building owned by the state of Georgia that fosters collaboration among government, academia and industry. The building is also near the Army base Fort Gordon and the U.S. Army Cyber Command. 

“Tatooine is an extension of our Pentagon office, so our teams will reflect the same makeup and talent profile,”  said Rachel Breitfeller, DDS communications director. “This will include software developers, designers, product managers, digital experts and bureaucracy hackers, to complement the military service members already working out of Tatooine. Our goal is for colleagues that work in Tatooine to touch projects that we take on regardless of location. Our plan with Tatooine was to tap into the tech ecosystem and talent in Augusta and the surrounding areas, and create a secondary, accessible space that all colleagues would want to work out of.”
