JC3IEDM Training is a 3-day training program covers the JOINT C3 INFORMATION EXCHANGE DATA MODEL.

The JC3IEDM training covers the key specification of the Multilateral Interoperability Programme (MIP) interoperability solution that has been formally reviewed and agreed upon. This serves as a coherent set of standards needed to build and test a MIP Common Interface and gives a basis for further development and improvement.

JC3IEDM, or Joint Consultation, Command and Control Information Exchange Data Model is a model that, when implemented, aims to enable the interoperability of systems and projects required to share Command and Control (C2) information. JC3IEDM is an evolution of the C2IEDM standard that includes joint operational concepts, just as the Land Command and Control Information Exchange Data Model (LC2IEDM) was extended to become C2IEDM.

The vision for the Multilateral Interoperability Programme (MIP) is to server as the principal operator-led multinational forum to promote international interoperability of C2IS (Command and Control Information Systems)  at all levels of command. The MIP scope is to deliver a command and control interoperability solution focused on the Land operational user in a Joint environment.

JC3IEDM is produced by the MIP-NATO Management Board (MNMB) and ratified under NATO STANAG 5525 enabling “international interoperability of C2 information systems at all levels from corps to battalion (or lowest appropriate level) in order to support multinational (including NATO), combined and joint operations and the advancement of digitisation in the international arena.

JC3IEDM represents the core of the data identified for exchange across multiple functional areas and multiple views of the requirements. Toward that end, it lays down a common approach to describing the information to be exchanged in a command and control (C2) environment: The structure should be sufficiently generic to accommodate joint, land, sea, and air environmental concerns.

The data model describes all objects of interest in the sphere of operations, e.g., organizations, persons, equipment, facilities, geographic features, weather phenomena, and military control measures such as boundaries.

Learning Objectives:

Upon completion of JC3IEDM training, the participants are be able to:

  • Describe the history and background of JC3IEDM
  • Describe the key concepts, features and mechanisms behind JC3IEDM
  • Explain the motivation behind the use of JC3IEDM
