The Defense Information Systems Agency conducted its inaugural symposium on the command and control interoperability program at DISA’s headquarters from June 13 to 15.
DISA said Tuesday that the symposium’s goal was to help share information across combatant commands, develop a flexible approach to the program and standardize the management of the Command and Control Interoperability Boards.
“The symposium fulfilled a requirement in our governing documents,” said Stephanie McMillan, chief of the International Relations and Engagements Office.
DISA’s international relations and engagement office serves as the lead agent that oversees the CCIBs designated to the agency as part of the program.
“We are required, as a lead agent, to annually coordinate CCIB activity with the combatant commands in order to prioritize our support,” McMillan added.
The command and control interoperability program aims to implement information standards with allies and partners to support combatant commanders and to assist in interoperability testing through the Joint Interoperability Test Command.
