Description

DoD's Joint Interoperability Certifier and only non-Service Operational Test Agency for Information Technology (IT)/National Security Systems. JITC provides risk based Test Evaluation & Certification services, tools, and environments to ensure Joint Warfighting IT capabilities are interoperable and support mission needs.

Mission

DISA, Joint Interoperability Test Command (JITC) supports the Warfighter in their efforts to manage information on and off the battlefield. This includes:
  • Being an independent operational test and evaluation/assessor of DISA, and other DoD Command,
  • Control, Communications, Computers and Intelligence (C4I) acquisitions
  • Identifying and solving C4I and Combat Support Systems interoperability deficiencies
  • Providing C4I joint and combined interoperability testing, evaluation and certification
  • Bringing C4I interoperability support, operational field assessments, and technical assistance to the Combatant Commands, Services, and Agencies
  • Providing training on C4I systems, as appropriate

Programs

The Telecom Switched Services Interoperability (TSSI) Program includes interoperability certification of DoD's voice, video, and data services across the circuit switched network. The circuit switched network comprises the Defense Switched Network (DSN) and customer premise equipment (CPE). As "approved by Office of the Secretary of Defense (OSD)", the DSN, is an interbase, nonsecure or secure Command & Control (C2) telecommunications system that provides end-to-end command use and dedicated telephone service, voice-band data, and dial-up video teleconferencing (VTC) for C2 and non-C2 DoD authorized users in accordance with national security directives. Non-secure dial-up voice (telephone) service is the system's principal requirement.

Welcome to the Joint Interoperability Test Command's (JITC) Moving Target Indicator (MTI) Format Standards Compliance and Interoperability Test Program. We are located in Fort Huachuca, Arizona.


BACKGROUND

To meet the needs of the Warfighter, Geospatial Intelligence (GEOINT) standards are essential in achieving interoperability of imagery capabilities across the National Systems for GEOINT (NSG) Enterprise ranging from sensor systems, to ground stations, to enhancement applications, to exploitation workstations. These standards have become ever more critical as imagery capabilities have become prolific across the battlefield, from water to ground, air to space, with exponential increases in diversity, complexity, and data production. As data production has surpassed the capacity of trained analysts, the need to enhance data sharing (e.g. accessibility, visibility, understandability, trustworthiness, interoperability, responsiveness) to allow analysts across the Enterprise to manage and exploit this volume makes metadata standardization necessary.

Amongst the GEOINT standards are the standards governing MTI capabilities. These standards are implemented by the Department of Defense (DoD), Intelligence Community (IC), North Atlantic Treaty Organization (NATO), Coalition Partners, and commercial programs. The NATO Standardization Agency promulgates and codifies for ratification the Standardization Agreement (STANAG) 4607 format and engineering guidance.

These standards have become ever more critical as imagery capabilities have become prolific across the battlefield, from water to ground, to air, to space, with exponential increases in diversity, complexity, and data production. For the past decade, data production has surpassed the capacity of trained analysts and created the need to enhance data sharing (e.g. accessibility, visibility, understandability, trustworthiness, interoperability, responsiveness) to allow analysts across the Enterprise to manage and exploit this volume.

Amongst the GEOINT standards are the standards governing still imagery capabilities, known as NITF Standards. These standards are implemented by the Department of Defense (DoD), Intelligence Community (IC), North Atlantic Treaty Organization (NATO), Coalition Partners, and commercial programs.
