“The Defense Intelligence Information Enterprise (DI2E) is the unifying construct between the Department of Defense, the Intelligence Community (IC), and Coalition intelligence information enterprises.” - Hon. James R. Clapper Director of National Intelligence 22 May 2012

DI2E is the component of the Defense Intelligence Enterprise that: 

  • Transforms information collected for Intelligence needs into forms suitable for further analysis or action.
  • Provides the ability to integrate evaluate, interpret and predict the current & future ops/physical environment.
  • Provides the ability to present, distribute or make available intelligence, information and environmental content and products that enable better situational awareness to military and national decision makers.
  • It is NOT a Program of Record.

An Enterprise Approach.

Leverage Existing Capabilities selected by DoD, IC, and International Partners that meet their mission needs. Collaborate with DoD, IC, and International Partners to ensure defense intelligence information flows seamlessly across enterprise boundaries.

Provide Reference Architecture aligned with the DoD Enterprise Architecture and Joint Information Enterprise guidance.

Share Software Components across the Defense Intelligence community to maximize interoperability, reduce training, and achieve efficiency.

Use DI2E Testbed for conformance testing to ensure trusted services are posted to the DI2E Storefront.

Execute the Governance Process to align warfighter needs and synchronize investment strategies.

Features and Benefits

The transformed DI2E will maximize interoperability, achieve operational effectiveness and identify efficiencies without resorting to a “one size fits all” approach to intelligence planning & direction, collection, processing & exploitation, analysis, prediction & production, and data dissemination & relay. The Department will establish an enterprise approach through standards and specifications that promote interoperability, establish an agreed upon implementation approach, improve information sharing, and encourage capability reuse.
