Defense Message System

Northrop Grumman Information Systems has provided DMS support to the Air Force, Marine Corps, and Defense Information Systems Agency (DISA) for the past 12 years. This support includes: program management, engineering, network design, site survey, architectures, detailed design, implementation planning, testing, configuration management, integration, installation, help desk, and sustainment. We have participated in every aspect of DMS.

Our early involvement included implementation and support of the Base Message Host, an early e-mail alternative for Air Force AUTODIN sites. We also supported the fielding and evaluation of the initial DMS Proof of Concept for DISA. In addition, we designed and fielded the Communications Support Processor (CSP), CSP to DMS Addressing Component (CDAC), and Secure Messaging and Routing Terminal (SMART) as AUTODIN processors and for DMS transition.
