Information Dominance Center (IDC)

The highly lauded INSCOM Information Dominance Center (IDC), designed and constructed by IIT in 1999, serves as the Army’s IO tactical operations center.

The IDC brings together the essential skills and communications architectures to support multiple, simultaneous, split-base operational deployments, either for exercises or contingencies. The immediacy of IDC access to National, joint, and Service agency intelligence, IO and IO-related databases expands the capabilities of the 1st IO Command FSTs and other deployed and detached elements to satisfy priority information requirements. Situational data are compiled and tailored to provide a comprehensive support package that addresses IO, IPB, orders of battle (air, ground, naval and electronics), and other specialized studies.

The IDC maintains connectivity via TROJAN, SIPRNET, NIPRNET and secure voice/fax between deployed/detached elements of the 1st IO Command and the 1st IO Command base of operations. Other IDC connectivity employs the following networks and systems:

• Automated Message Handling System (AMHS)
• Global Command and Control System (GCCS)
• Joint Deployable Intelligence Support System (JDISS)
• Multi-Media Information Exchange Network (MINX)
• Multi-Mission Advanced Technical Terminal (MATT) with Generic Area Limitation Environment (GALE) Processor
• National Security Agency Network (NSANET)
• Open Source Information System (OSIS)
• Linked Operations – Intelligence Center, Europe (LOCE)
