DISA Joint Interoperability Test Command
As designated by the DoD CIO, JITC certifies Information Technology (IT) and National Security System (NSS) interoperability and net-readiness for joint military operations. JITC has also been designated as DoD’s only non-service Operational Test Agency (OTA). JITC works closely with the warfighting Combatant Commands (COCOMs) during exercises and contingency operations, providing them on-the-spot evaluations of problem areas and viable mission-oriented solutions. JITC extends its services globally to the entire spectrum of DoD, Federal government, private industry, and allies in support of command and control, intelligence, business, and enterprise information environment. JITC deals directly with vendors to provide critical pre-acquisition test results. This early involvement in development results in better systems at lower cost. JITC is primarily composed of divisions and portfolios and is aligned with the warfighting mission areas to provide consistent practices and processes across the testing disciplines (developmental, operational, interoperability, and security) and support the implementation of a risk based test strategy that enables agile testing and rapid fielding.
