A new Customs and Border Protection command center is under construction at March Air Reserve Base in Moreno Valley, Calif.

Federal officials celebrated the new construction Wednesday during a groundbreaking ceremony, Patch.com reports. 

The Air and Marine Operations Center is expected to cost $11 million and be built over the next 12 months. The center will replace an adjacent facility that was built in 1988 and lacks space.

The AMOC serves as the coordination hub for interdiction missions off the California coast as well as airborne interdiction missions along the U.S.- Mexico border, according to the CBP.

Personnel monitor air and sea traffic on a 24-hour basis. The new building will house the latest data processing, telecommunications and satellite-based tracking hardware available, according to the agency, which is part of the Department of Homeland Security.

In addition to coordinating helicopter and fixed-wing intercepts, the AMOC also handles unmanned aerial vehicle deployments, according to the CBP’s website.
