In February 2004, the Joint Forces Command JFCOM began its efforts to provide a near-term Multinational Information Sharing MNIS solution to support Warfighters operating in a coalition environment. The JFCOM Joint Futures Laboratory JFL solution to MNIS is the Cross Domain Collaborative Information Environment CDCIE. The CDCIE is a suite of standards-based and largely open source code applications that provide the capability to collaborate, share and manage documents, and use web portals, from one classification domain to another. The applications will also work within a single classification domain. While the CDCIE is designed to run in todays environment, it is also a building block for the future information infrastructure -- the CDCIE is adhering to the same basic standards that are guiding Net-Centric Enterprise Services development. Currently portal, document management, and cross domain text chat capabilities have been developed for the CDCIE solution. The cross domain text chat capability will be submitted for Certification and Accreditation CA this year. CDCIE development will continue to be expanded to include audio chat, application casting and whiteboarding. As the CDCIE is enhanced, the suite will return to CA. The CDCIE project has been designed to function at the operational command and control level.
