1 Mr. Al M. Slarve Joint Interoperability Test Command Integrated Communications Systems Branch, Chief E-mail: firstname.lastname@example.org CML: 520-538-5362 DSN: 879-5362 Department of Defense Interoperability Communications Exercise (DICE) A Combat Support Agency Defense Information Systems Agency
3 BLUF Venue to conduct interoperability certification or assessments in a realistic environment Solve real-world interoperability issues Reduce costs of testing by resource sharing Provide a venue where interoperability or system/equipment failures are resolved without operational pressures Reduces interoperability risk of rapid communication & information technology insertion Allows the Warfighter to acquire, certify & deploy systems in less than one year
4 *Coalition Warrior Interoperability Demonstration (CWID) ( Demonstration of emerging technologies to DoD) Joint User Interoperability Communications Exercise (JUICE) (Operational Area Network…Architecture, Tactics, Techniques & Procedures) Department of Defense Interoperability Communications Exercise (DICE) (Interoperability Certification and Assessment in the Operational Area Network (OAN) / Global Information Grid (GIG) What’s the Difference?
5 DICE Joint Staff / Joint Forces Command supported exercise Emulates complex Joint Task Force (JTF) communications network with commercial network interfaces Utilizes operational warfighting systems with actual users Includes developers, vendors & industry partners
6 What we do Joint Interoperability Certification of tactical warfighting systems Interoperability testing with live networks, systems & capabilities Technology demonstrations relevant to the warfighter Combatant Command (COCOM) support Hotline support Training venue
7 How we do it CJCSI 6212.01E & Unified Capabilities Requirements (UCR) 2008 Distributed / global network (CONUS / OCONUS) Realistic Operational Area Network Operation of systems by actual operators Live and closed-loop networks
8 How we do it Partnerships Warfighting organizations JCSE, MCTSSA, 11th Sig Bde Joint User Interoperability Communications Exercise (JUICE) Coalition Warrior Interoperability Demonstration (CWID) Department of Homeland Security (DHS) Industry

13 DICE FY09 Snapshot DICE FY09 events 01 27 Oct – 14 Nov 08 02 2 – 27 Mar 09 03 1 – 19 Jun 09 36 total participants 19 Formal certifications and assessments 10 Support services 3 Training 4 Technology demonstrations 12 distributed geographic locations
22 Summary DICE reduces the cost of interoperability testing through cost sharing & experience Mitigate operational risk through interoperability testing in realistic environment DICE is growing & evolving in pace with the warfighter Automating the data collection and analysis “The battleground should not be the testing ground!”
