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

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
