Where some the Defense Department?s top systems projects stand
August 20, 2001
Defense Information Systems Agency
Defense Message System. On July 20, DISA began upgrading its backbone
infrastructure to DMS Version 3.0, program manager Jerry Bennis said.
The version is currently going through developmental testing. Last
Friday, the version was scheduled for fielding at several operational
test sites. The Joint Interoperability Test Command will begin its
review in October.
Common Operating Environment. COE is fielded or planned for use by the
Air Force Theater Battle Management Core Systems, the Army Battle
Command System and Global Command and Control System, the Navy Global
Command and Control System-Maritime, and DISA?s Global Command and
Control System and Global Combat Support System.
More than 100 other systems and programs across the Defense Department,
Coast Guard, and Customs Service either use or plan to use DII COE. The
four versions of COE?versions 3.1, 3.3, 3.4 and 4.4?are supported on up
to five platforms: HP-UX 11.0, Sun Microsystems Solaris 7 and Solaris 8,
and Microsoft Windows NT 4.0 and Windows 2000.
Global Command and Control System. In the past year, GCCS has delivered
extensive capabilities to the field, said Dawn Meyerriecks, DISA?s chief
technology officer. GCCS users can query logistical data about sites and
DMS. On June 30, the Air Force moved the last of 3,383 unclassified
organizational messaging accounts from AUTODIN to DMS.
Navy-Marine Corps Intranet. Contractor Electronic Data Systems Corp. has
assumed responsibility for more than 42,000 seats since January. EDS has
opened network operating centers in Norfolk, Va., and San Diego. The
company also has upgraded the infrastructure of 29 Navy sites and
constructed 17 server farms, Navy spokesman Lt. Pat McNally said.
The Naval Air Facility-Washington will be the first to switch over to
the NMCI environment. Other commands are currently identifying their
legacy applications, which is the ?most time-consuming in the Navy?s
transition to NMCI,? McNally said.
DMS. The Navy has implemented its ashore DMS infrastructure for
unclassified, secret and top-secret organizational messaging at 20 Navy
and two Coast Guard sites.
Army Knowledge Online. The intranet portal offers personnel instant
messaging and personalization software. It also supports free Web
e-mail, access to Army news articles, banking information, servicewide
personnel directories and three search engines of the .mil domain.
Army Knowledge Management. AKM combines five of the Army chief
information officer?s goals: centralizing about 24 major commands under
the CIO office; sharing data across commands to improve Army
decision-making and operations; naming a single authority to manage
information dissemination; requiring Army personnel to open accounts on
Army Knowledge Online; and asking Army employees for ideas on reshaping
the work force.
DMS. The Army completed its Tactical DMS proof of concept at Fort Hood,
Texas, with the use of a mobile Tactical Messaging System. TMS was
successfully fielded and exercised. The Army expects to fully field TMS
DMS. ?The Marine Corps is progressing well with our implementation,?
said Maj. Augusto G. Cata, DMS action officer. ?All of our operational
forces are 100 percent on secret and below. We are making steady
progress in getting our detached units operational and completing our
top-secret and collateral migration.?
