Use Case

Department of Defense


The U.S. Military developed the Distributed Common Ground System (DCGS) Integration Backbone (DIB) to make intelligence products visible, accessible, understandable, trusted, and interoperable between the seven DCGS programs operated by the United State Air Force, Army, Navy, Marine Corps, NGA, SOF, and the Intelligence Community. Since each service has its own intelligence collection capabilities and Processing, Exploitation, and Dissemination (PED) capabilities, a system was needed for secure content discovery and retrieval both within and between programs. Thousands of processing nodes are required to support operations from the tactical edge to the national enterprise. Furthermore, coalition partners including the Five Eyes community, NATO, and various Bilateral and Multilateral sharing agreements drive a need for an ITAR free, cost-effective means for intelligence sharing.
