DoD Interoperability Communications Exercise
Department of Defense Interoperability Communications Exercise (DICE)

DICE is the only DoD exercise whose principal purpose is to generate system-level, joint interoperability assessments and certifications to support the fielding of interoperable systems to the warfighter. Since the Joint Interoperability Test Command (JITC) is DoD's sole interoperability certification authority, JITC conducts DICE in support of DoD joint interoperability testing, training, and transformation initiatives with its primary focus to mitigate operational risk by thoroughly testing new communications systems and software releases in a realistic joint tactical network. Participants include communications equipment and personnel from each of the Services, Combatant Commands, the Joint Communications Support Element (JCSE), the National Guard, and the Department of Homeland Security (Federal Emergency Management Agency (FEMA)).


Planning efforts for the first FY2012 DICE event, FY12-01 starting October 31 and ending November 18 2011 are continuing.

The final planning conference for the DICE FY12-02 event (March 5 - 23, 2012) will be held October 18-20, 2011 at JITC in Fort Huachuca, AZ. Conference registration will open in a few weeks.
