9 Standards Lifecycle Requirement Develop Publish Adopt Implement Test
Emerging Published Expected to be mandated within three years Test, implementations, technical maturity May be implemented but not in lieu of mandated standard Use of (StdV-1) requires a waiver and a Technology Insertion Risk Assessment Generally placed in StdV-2 / Standards Forecast Mandated Essential for interoperability across the enterprise Minimum Set of essential standards for the acquisition of all DoD systems that produce, use, or exchange info, and, when implemented, facilitates the flow of info in support of warfighter Required for the management, development, and acquisition of new or improved systems throughout the DoD Retired New standards / technology now available and implemented Should not be used in a new or upgraded system Require waiver and Migration Plan Inactive, remain in the DISR Registry Information Guidance Are for cross-organization use and offer a means to further clarify standards and identify relevant policies and procedures Directives, Instructions, handbooks, manuals, procedures, best practices Have a status of either active (selectable for a standards profile) or inactive (not selectable). Do not meet the criteria to be approved as standard citations in the DISR, developed by processes outside the standards-development process Sunset Tag Identifies a mandated standard for retirement as a tag not a status Tagged for retirement at a pre-defined event and date A replacement standard is frequently identified IC-Prohibited An Intelligence Community Standards Registry (ICSR) prohibited standard shall not be used in IC systems. Such standards, which may be deemed appropriate for use in warfighter systems and environments, pose a high risk to IC systems if employed. Requirement Develop Publish Adopt Implement Test Feedback

10 GEOINT Standards Baseline 13-1 March ‘13
Kinds/Types of GEOINT Standards are Governed in this Process? Why do we have so many standards? Over 1,200 IT Standards in the DoD standards governance process (DISR cited), 173 are GEOINT which are generally categorized for geospatial, motion imagery, & still imagery. These are available to down select from to those necessary to meet a system’s capability requirements. The chart shows the thematic areas for the types of GEOINT standards. Thematic areas from previous slide to include: Geospatial Web Services (On-Line Services, Web Services MC&G: Foundation Data Motion Imagery: Full Motion Imagery & Large Volume Streaming Data Still Imagery & Gridded Data Imagery, Sensors & Geospatial Metadata The Number and % shown for each category (GEOINT standards type) These are the essential set of standards for the acquisition of all DoD systems that produce, use or exchange GEOINT, & when implemented, facilitate the flow of information in support of the warfighter/national security. The logos at the bottom left represent Standards Development Organizations (international, national, consortia) that develop GEOINT standards through their open, voluntary consensus-based processes. These SDOs publish most of the standards managed in this governance processes – so it’s not all about MIL-Stds of which there are a few. This is important because the US Government is required by public law and Office of Management & Budget (CircularA-119) which establishes policies on Federal use and development of voluntary consensus standards. Many voluntary consensus standards are appropriate or adaptable for the Government's purposes. The use of such standards, as practicable & appropriate, is intended to - Eliminate the cost to the Government of developing its own standards & decrease the cost of goods procured & the burden of complying with agency regulation. - Provide incentives/opportunities to establish standards that serve national needs. -Encourage long-term growth for U.S. enterprises & promote efficiency & economic competition through harmonization of standards. - Further the policy of reliance upon the private sector to supply Government needs for goods and services. Now that I’ve described how GEOINT standards are developed, adopted, and promoted for the NSG, Mike Reidy for our NSG Interoperability Action Team will describe how NGA is planning to ensure critical DoD/IC programs are compliant with these NSG standards. 173 GEOINT Standards Voluntary, Open, Consensus-Based

11 National Imagery Transmission Format Standard (NITFS) Technical Board (NTB)
Still imagery & gridded data, formats, & compression Graphical, textual, & other means to annotate imagery products Imagery-related support data & metadata Imagery-derived data & metadata, to include foundation data LiDAR Image Quality

20 Standards Governance – DISR/IC Enterprise Standards Baseline
DoD IT Standards Registry (DISR) - NIPRNet A single, unifying DoD registry for approved standards citations and a registry for approved DoD IT standards profiles DISR Mandated Standards – the minimum set of essential standards for the acquisition of all DoD systems that produce, use or exchange information and, when implemented, facilitate the flow of information in support of the warfighter New/modified systems throughout the DoD are required to include all applicable DISR mandated standards in baseline (StdV-1 / Standards Profile) ER2: IC Enterprise Standards Baseline & ICS : IC Enterprise Standards Compliance - JWICS Signed 12/16/ Defines the IC framework for: Adoption of IC enterprise standards best-suited for achieving the DNI’s goals of interoperability and information sharing Management of the IC Enterprise Standards Baseline in the IC Enterprise Registry and Repository (ER2) consisting of a minimal, focused, coordinated set of such standards Compliance and compliance certification of those portions of IC systems and EA-related information technology items funded through the NIP

21 NSG Standards Registry
The National System for Geospatial Intelligence (NSG) Standards Registry supports the discovery, traceability, and lifecycle management of GEOINT Standards that may be used in the development and operation of data- and net-centric GEOINT applications. The NSG Standards Registry is maintained by NGA for the GWG as a service to the NSG community.

22 Discovering GEOINT Standards in the NSG Standards Registry
GEOINT Standards by Capability A feature to help users find and identify GEOINT standards grouped functionally The registers are organized into four types of registries: data schemas data dictionaries NSG-applicable standards Geopolitical Entities Names and Codes (Country Codes) Other registries will be added in the future, to include a registry of portrayals (symbols, rules, and rule sets).
