Defense rolls out Version 2.2 of message system

The latest version of the Defense Message System got the green light late last month 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 & Evaluation. The messaging software also received high test scores from the Joint Interoperability Test Command at Fort Huachuca, Ariz. [GCN, April 16, Page 8].

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.
