MAY 2—The latest version of the Defense Message System got the green light last week from Leonard Wells, the acting Defense Department chief information officer.

Wells' approval of DMS 2.2 for worldwide deployment followed on the heels of a similar recommendation from DOD's Office of Operational Test and Evaluation. The messaging software also received high test scores from the Joint Interoperability Test Command at Fort Huachuca, Ariz. [see story at www.gcn.com/vol20_no8/news/3989-1.html].

Jerry Bennis, DMS program manager, said contractor Lockheed Martin Corp. is mass-producing Version 2.2 CD-ROMs and will ship them to 400 Defense offices for installation over the next several months.
