The Department of Defense Intelligence Information System (DODIIS) is

DODIIS is the combination of personnel, procedures, equipment, computer programs, and supporting communications that support the timely and comprehensive preparation and presentation of intelligence information to military commanders and national-level decisionmakers. The DIA is responsible for implementing and managing the configuration of information, data, and communications standards for DOD intelligence systems and for IC systems that interface with, or directly support DOD. As such, DIA establishes defense-wide intelligence priorities for attaining interoperability between the tactical, theater, and national intelligence systems and the respective communications system at each level.
In a technical sense, DODIIS is the SCI portion of the GIG that provides the interface between the CCDRs and the IC. The joint intelligence systems architecture is an integral part of the GIG, and consists of an integrated network supporting voice, data, and VTC. The JWICS, the Joint Deployable Intelligence Support System, and the Distributed Common Ground System currently form the foundation of the SCI portion of the GIG. This interface consists of more than the SCI networks.
DODIIS also provides the interfaces between the JWICS SCI IC systems and the SIPRNET IC systems. It is through this interface that much of the real time intelligence gathered by the CCDRs is passed up into the national IC systems and the national intelligence products are passed back down to the CCDRs. Additionally, this interface extends multinational networks that are essential partners in today's missions.
As such, DODIIS has evolved into an enterprise consisting of mission applications, communications services, and user equipment consolidated under centralized management to better serve the CCDRs and provide more responsive intelligence. This consolidation is shaped around an enterprise approach using regional service centers (RSCs). The globally linked RSCs provide the foundation and interface for data to be managed as a single enterprise entity transparent to the users. Data will reside on, or be accessible through the enterprise that connects the policy makers, analysts, planners, and decisionmakers in support of the joint force.
