Raytheon To Develop Next Generation DIB Architecture

"This next version of the DIB will deliver significant advantages to military analysts to perform their missions flawlessly," said Anthony DiFurio, director of Multi-Intelligence Systems for Raytheon's Intelligence and Information Systems. "The DIB is an essential architecture for discovering and sharing information in the ISR (Intelligence, Surveillance and Reconnaissance) community, which was a major shortfall cited by the 9/11 Commission."

Raytheon has been awarded a U.S. Air Force contract to develop the next generation of the Distributed Common Ground System (DCGS) Integration Backbone (DIB). The DIB is an architecture through which military analysts and the intelligence communities can collaborate globally, regardless of their military service affiliation, enabling joint interoperability. The architecture connects disparate locations and allows users with the appropriate security clearance to access a host of intelligence sources.

Raytheon first developed the DIB under the DCGS 10.2 contract for the Air Force and has delivered more than 110 units of the software to integrate into their existing and emerging systems. The DIB has been delivered to the military services and intelligence community and will soon be fielded at all Air Force DCGS sites.

The DIB 1.2 updates will extend the baseline architecture to address new requirements for more widespread sharing of data across enterprise firewalls. The updates will provide expanded event delivery and notification capabilities using mechanisms such as real simple syndication, or RSS, and E-mail, with additional enhancements for data retrieval and presentation of results to the user.

Raytheon designed and developed the DIB roadmap process to increase the latest enhancements for the DIB1.2 product. The DIB roadmap provides a plan for regular enhancement cycles to stay attuned to the latest technologies and to provide new features and services to the user community. Raytheon will work closely with the DIB Management Office to ensure that the company addresses the latest inputs from the user community.

"This next version of the DIB will deliver significant advantages to military analysts to perform their missions flawlessly," said Anthony DiFurio, director of Multi-Intelligence Systems for Raytheon's Intelligence and Information Systems. "The DIB is an essential architecture for discovering and sharing information in the ISR (Intelligence, Surveillance and Reconnaissance) community, which was a major shortfall cited by the 9/11 Commission."
