Replace Existing Systems with Newer or Different System


The Information Technology Infrastructure (ITI) in Support of Command and Control will transform and enhance the Command & Control and supporting Communication & Information Systems environments in order to address identified deficiencies and position the Department of National Defence and Cananadian Armed Force for future capabilities. This transformation is in direct support to Command & Control, Communications & Computers, Intelligence, Surveillance and Reconnaissance strategic objectives from now until 2028.


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: Information Technology Service Management (ITSM), which will implement coordinated ITSM processes across the department; Implement Integrated Network Services, which will transform the department’s ITI to a more modular and flexible approach; Optimize Integrated Information Infrastructure, which will modernize and replace legacy systems to leverage new and emerging technologies; Cross Domain Solutions, which will implement capabilities to allow information with various classifications to securely share common ITI; Network Convergence, resulting in a reduction in overall infrastructure; and Enable Interoperability, including improved information sharing internally and externally to the department.
