1. Purpose. This instruction
Establishes policies and procedures for the J-6 interoperability requirements
and supportability certification and validation of Joint Capabilities
Integration and Development Systems (JCIDS) Acquisition Category (ACAT)
programs cited in references a and b, and for all non-ACAT and fielded
detailed instructions for the implementation of information technology (IT)
and National Security Systems (NSS) interoperability and supportability
certifications as referenced in CJCSI 3170.01 Series, DODD 4630.5, DODI
4630.8, and DODD 8100.1 (references a, b, e,
g and y, respectively).
the Net-Ready Key Performance Parameter (NR-KPP) in lieu of the
Interoperability KPP (I KPP) discussed in CJCSI 3170.01C and CJCSM 3170.01.
The NR-KPP shall be used to assess information needs, information timeliness,
information assurance, joint interoperability and supportability, and
net-ready attributes required for both the technical exchange of information
and the end-to-end operational effectiveness of that exchange. The NR-KPP
shall consist of measurable, testable or calculable characteristics and
performance metrics required for the timely, accurate and complete exchange
and use of information.
Establishes policies and procedures for Joint Interoperability Test Command
(JITC) system interoperability test certification.
e. Provides additional
guidance for development of Information Support Plans (ISPs) and establishes
procedures for certification of ISPs for all programs, including ACAT,
non-ACAT, and fielded systems with regard to the J-6 interoperability
requirements and supportability certification. The ISP replaces the Command,
Control, Communications, Computers and Intelligence Support Plan (C4ISP)
originally in the DOD 5000 series directives.
