New Systems


Over the past ten years, DND/CAF’s information technology infrastructure (ITI) has necessarily evolved in a somewhat ad hoc manner without an overarching architectural vision. This has resulted in a collection of systems across the enterprise, many with a narrow scope and limited interoperability. The Information Technology Infrastructure in Support of Command and Control project (ITI in Sp of C2) will transform and enhance DND/CAF ITI in order to address identified deficiencies and to position the enterprise to address future challenges. The transformed ITI will be more efficient and responsive, less costly to support, and will enable more effective execution of command and control at all levels.


The Project requires specialized knowledge and expertise to define and implement ITI capability enhancements to provide better support to command and control within the department. Deliverables include the following: Network Convergence, resulting in a reduction in overall infrastructure; Enhanced Interoperability, including improved information sharing internally and externally to the department; Technology Refresh, which will modernize and replace legacy systems to leverage new and emerging technologies; and Infrastructure Improvements, which will enhance the reliability and resiliency of the department’s infrastructure.
