Welcome to the Joint Interoperability Test Command's (JITC) Moving Target Indicator (MTI) Format Standards Compliance and Interoperability Test Program. We are located in Fort Huachuca, Arizona.


BACKGROUND

To meet the needs of the Warfighter, Geospatial Intelligence (GEOINT) standards are essential in achieving interoperability of imagery capabilities across the National Systems for GEOINT (NSG) Enterprise ranging from sensor systems, to ground stations, to enhancement applications, to exploitation workstations. These standards have become ever more critical as imagery capabilities have become prolific across the battlefield, from water to ground, air to space, with exponential increases in diversity, complexity, and data production. As data production has surpassed the capacity of trained analysts, the need to enhance data sharing (e.g. accessibility, visibility, understandability, trustworthiness, interoperability, responsiveness) to allow analysts across the Enterprise to manage and exploit this volume makes metadata standardization necessary.

Amongst the GEOINT standards are the standards governing MTI capabilities. These standards are implemented by the Department of Defense (DoD), Intelligence Community (IC), North Atlantic Treaty Organization (NATO), Coalition Partners, and commercial programs. The NATO Standardization Agency promulgates and codifies for ratification the Standardization Agreement (STANAG) 4607 format and engineering guidance.
