Defense Infrastructure Information/Common Operating Environment


Primary Purpose To provide a software development

architecture/foundation which promotes

interoperability and software reuse in a secure,

reliable, and global networked environment.

Sub-Functions Serve as an implementation of the Joint Technical

Architecture (JTA), an approach to building

interoperable systems on a common platform, a

collection of software that is reusable by the

services and the agencies as well as a set of

guidelines and standards for building a system.

Equipment Requirements The DII COE software development environment

currently supports HP, Sun, and PC workstations.

The DII COE 3.X kernel/components, currently the

foundation for numerous fielded systems, only

supports the Unix platform using HP 10.20 and

Solaris 2.5.1. The 4.x DII COE Kernel/components

is currently supported on the following

operating systems: Sun Solaris 7/8, HP HP-UX

11.0, Microsoft Windows NT 4, and Windows 2000.

For a list of platforms (software running on

hardware) that have been validated through the
