BOXARR invited to join US Dept of Defense Plugfest

Updated: Jun 3, 2021

DI2E is the US 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). The DI2E Plugfest is the annual demonstration of advancements in the DI2E. The purpose is to provide an 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.

"BOXARR's unique ability to dynamically model and visualise massive-scale data will be demonstrated across a range of operational mission scenarios" says George Barros, BOXARR's US Representative for Government and Military engagement, "We will be aggregating data from both military and intelligence feeds, along with data output from other collaborative solution providers invited to participate in the exercise. BOXARR will be converting the data into dynamic models, from which commanders can readily visualise inter-dependencies and run impact simulations to make better informed strategic and tactical operational decisions. BOXARR's 'model-optimised' data will be exported back for use by other participants in the wider mission scenario, completing the cycle.

"We are truly honoured to be invited by the US Government to participate in DI2E 2016.", says Fraser Hamilton, BOXARR's VP of Global Alliances, "This is a truly exclusive sandbox in which very few vendors get to play. We see DI2E as a fantastic opportunity to learn about the challenges facing the US DoD and to showcase the value of BOXARR in supporting operational optimisation - particularly in complex and dynamic joint-ops scenarios".
