1 1 Mr. Al M. Slarve Joint Interoperability Test Command Integrated Communications Systems Branch, Chief CML: DSN: Department of Defense Interoperability Communications Exercise (DICE) A Combat Support Agency Defense Information Systems Agency

2 2 Agenda  BLUF  DICE Overview  FY 09 Snapshot  FY Snapshot  FY 10-02/03 Emphasis & Initiatives  DICE Distributed & Connected  Summary

3 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 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 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 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 7 How we do it  CJCSI E & 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 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
