Defense Information Systems Agency (DISA) Becomes Member of Network Centric Operations Industry Consortium (NCOIC)

WASHINGTON, Nov. 6 /PRNewswire/ -- The Defense Information Systems Agency (DISA), a major U.S. Department of Defense component, has become the latest high-profile organization to join the Network Centric Operations Industry Consortium (NCOIC(TM)). DISA is also the first government agency to join NCOIC as a working member, highlighting the importance of industry and government working in concert to develop a common global framework for network centric operations.

"The lessons learned by DISA in developing extensive net-centric capabilities for the U.S. Department of Defense (DoD) will enrich the work of NCOIC," said Dr. Kevin J. Reardon, executive director of NCOIC. "Among many examples, DISA's work in Enterprise Wide Systems Engineering, network centric initiatives, and information assurance are important elements in achieving interoperability in the DoD. Our collaborative efforts with DISA will accelerate NCOIC's progress in achieving our vision of global interoperability for governments and other organizations."

"NCOIC and DISA are pursuing similar and complementary paths in developing network centric capabilities and addressing information assurance challenges," said Lt. Gen. Charles E. Croom Jr., USAF, director of DISA. "We are looking forward to working side-by-side as an NCOIC member with the many world-class technology organizations actively involved in NCOIC's groundbreaking work," added Croom, who also serves on NCOIC's Advisory Council.

NCOIC is working to enable network-centric operations within and between all levels of governments and civil agencies by creating and advocating tools that will enhance development of network centric capabilities and enabling systems. Recently, NCOIC announced the availability of the first version of its assessment tools. The NCOIC Interoperability Framework (NIF(TM)) provides an engineering framework for building network centric systems. Network Centric Analysis Tool (NCAT(TM)) assesses the ability of a system or subsystem to operate with disparate systems in a network centric environment. Both are available at http://www.ncoic.org/
