GCCS is an automated information system designed to support situational awareness and deliberate and crisis planning with the use of an integrated set of analytic tools and flexible data transfer capabilities. GCCS will be the single C4I system to support the warfighter from the foxhole to the command post.
Under the Joint Interoperability Certification role, and as mandated by CJCSI 6212.01, The Joint Interoperability Test Command (JITC) tests and certifies the interoperability of C4I systems for Joint use. In that role, JITC plans, conducts, and certifies the interoperability of GCCS with all its required interfaces or interfacing systems.
- Being an independent operational test and evaluation/assessor of DISA, and other DoD C4I acquisitions Identifying and solving Command, Control, Communications, Computers and Intelligence (C4I) and Combat Support Systems interoperability deficiencies
- Providing C4I joint and combined interoperability testing, evaluation and certification
- Bringing C4I interoperability support, operational field assessments, and technical stance to the COCOMs, Services, and Agencies
- Providing training on C4I systems, as appropriate
JITC will be the preeminent information systems evaluator, reducing risk to the warfighter by providing value-added process and product evaluations, operational assessments, and technical assistance throughout the life cycle of DoD Systems.
