Defense Intelligence Information Enterprise

DI2E Logo_330dpi

The DI2E is the Department of Defense’s (DoD) enterprise architecture component for the Intelligence Mission Area. As such it is part of the DoD Joint Information Environment and must federate with the other capability architectures across the DoD. Thus DI2E acts as a bridge between the DoD Joint Information Environment (JIE) and IC Information Technology Enterprise (ICITE).

What is plugfest?

The DI2E Plugfest is the annual demonstration of advancements in the DI2E featuring DI2E Programs of Record, COCOMS and Agencies, Intelligence Investment Fund, 43 displays, dozens of demonstrations, talks from senior leadership, 4 mashup challenge teams, hundreds of attendees.

The purpose is to provide a environment of networked, interoperable and reusable components, the Plugfest eXchange, where vendors are able to deploy and show how their data, tools and products provide flexible, agile and data-driven capabilities to Warfighters.  DI2E Plugfest demonstrates real innovation, interoperability and reuse across the Defense intelligence mission.  It brings industry and DoD programs together to show how technology is changing the future of the DoD ISR environment.

DI2E Plugfest Expands to Two Days in 2016

DoD CIO Organization Joins the Plugfest

The DI2E Plugfest is expanding to two days in 2016 and the DoD CIO organization will join the Plugfest.  The DoD CIO organization believes the DI2E Plugfest represents an opportunity to bring innovation to solving the technical challenges in sharing C2 data and information with mission partners.  The DoD CIO will identify the specific problems they would like the vendors to attempt to solve based on identified needs. DoD CIO will focus on Cyber Security and an enduring Mission Partner Information Sharing environment. 

To the CIO organization DI2E Plugfest is the opportunity to leverage the integrator-developers' environment to address and attempt to solve the complex interoperable data exchange problems DoD has in sharing, consuming, retrieving, and correlating data among the Warfighter, Intelligence, and Business Mission Areas.

DI2E Plugfest continues to be a collaborative effort contributing to the evolution of the DI2E framework.  The DI2E Framework provides interoperable and reusable components that are flexible, agile and data-driven.

Expanded Scenario for 2016

The DI2E Plugfest and Mashup Challenge will have an updated and expanded scenario involving operational, C2 and ISR activities that creates more opportunities for demonstrating components and capabilities.  It features cybersecurity situational awareness, ISR Common Intelligence Picture with critical collection intelligence requirements, network analysis, geo-visualization, overwatch and patterns of life analysis elements.
