Joint Interoperability Certification Requirements

Moderator:  Mrs. Jacqueline ZachgoArmy Interoperability Test Panel Representative

Facilitator:  Ms. Joan C. Smith

Panel Participants:  Representatives from, J6 & J8

 

In today’s environment, a successful mission, means Army Warfighters must be able to freely exchange accurate and timely information routinely with joint, coalition, interagency and multinational (JIIM) partners  anytime, anywhere and under all conditions.  Partners who span from generating force to the tactical edge. This translates into JOINT INTEROPERABILITY – One Warfighter, One Mission.  Through the use of a panel presentation this session will highlight Joint Interoperability Certification processes and activities established to minimize risk associated with the receipt of accurate and timely information exchanges between those who require the information.

Accomplishing Interoperability Certification in a Federated Net-Centric Environment

Moderator:  Mr. David Brumlow, HQDA CIO/G-6, FaNS POC (Federated Netcentric Sites), Mr. Steven Roscoe, HQDA CIO/G6 Army Interoperability Certification Branch Chief

Facilitator:  Ms. Joan C. Smith

Panel Participants:  FaNS-CTSF

 

In today’s environment, a successful mission means Army Warfighters must be able to routinely exchange accurate and timely information with joint, interagency, intergovernmental and multinational (JIIM) partners anytime, anywhere and under all conditions.  Prior to placing this capability into the hands of the Warfighters it must undergo Army Interoperability Certification testing. This testing is routinely accomplished at the Central Technical Support Facility, located at Fort Hood, Texas.  However, partnering with Federated Net-Centric Sites, Interoperability Certification testing can be accomplished real time from many locations. Through the use of a presentation this session will highlight the Army Interoperability Certification process and the Federated Net-Centric Site accreditation processes.

Improving the efficiency and effectiveness of the Army’s Certification, Accreditation and Compliance (CAC) Processes for C4IT

Moderator:  Ms. Victoria H. Moore, Lead for the Six Sigma (LSS) CAC Spiral 3 Project

Facilitator:  Ms. Joan C. Smith

Panel Participants:  Representatives from Four key CAC Processes:

                                                        Information Support Plan Administration

                                                        Information Assurance Certification

                                                        Army Interoperability Certification

                                                        Certificate of NETWORTHINESS

In today’s environment, timely delivery of relevant integrated C4IT solutions is extremely challenging.  HQDA CIO/G6 initiated a Lean Six Sigma project to improve its certification, accreditation and compliance processes making them more efficient  while remaining effective in assuring the appropriate standards, information assurance controls, spectrum usage and technical interoperability are built into warfighter solution sets without delaying delivery.  During this session panel members will lay out the changes/improvements that are being instituted into the CAC processes and answer questions about the integrated set of processes; their purpose, strategy and effectiveness.
