Pagination or Media Count:
The Defense Message System DMS consists of all hardware, software, procedures, standards, facilities, and personnel used to exchange messages electronically between organizations and individuals in the Department of Defense DoD. This document, originally published in Dec 1988, reflects the DMS Target Architecture and Implementation Strategy TAIS. In keeping with the intent that the DMS TAIS be a living document, continually updated as requirements, plans, and technology change, this update reflects programmatic activities and architectural progress since the original publication. This first update of the DMS TAIS has been validated by the Joint Staff and therefore represents the coordinated positions of the DoD Services and agencies regrading the DMS. The documents structure has been modified to accommodate this validation process. The body of this update, containing the introduction, baseline and target architecture descriptions, and articulation of the implementation strategy, has been validated by the Joint Staff and is therefore not subject to change without revalidation. The appendices, containing more detailed description of the phased implementation strategy, are subject to change and have therefore been approved by the Joint Staff for planning purposes only.
