Excerpt: A. Mission Description and Budget Item Justification. The Partnership for Peace Information Management System (PIMS) is a D.O.D. leadership project supporting enhanced cooperation, bilaterally and multilaterally, in accordance with US policy and to US benefit. Firmly based on priority requirements, the Program has established a common, dedicated information infrastructure that has given allies and Partner countries the ability to access and exchange information critical to the cooperative growth activities underpinning the spirit of PfP. PIMS is part of the NATO Enlargement Facilitation Act of 1996 and implements the Congressional endorsement for the modernization of Defense capabilities in eligible PfP countries relative to the telecommunications infrastructures. R&D funding is essential to ensuring PIMS ability to support this mandate and to assist in the transformation of security cooperation through information technology. PIMS provides the PFP critical new focus on the long-term global war on terrorism via the confluence of technology, security cooperation, and education. PIMS supports preparation for future coalition initiatives through the development and integration of a full range of databases and advanced IT applications to support the practical aspects of US and NATO approved PfP cooperative activities. In addition, special capabilities such as mapping and geodesy, multinational digitized imagery, and data derived from remote sensing technologies must al be integrated in PIMS if it is to provide the requisite mission support services necessary to achieve the interoperability/integration goals outlined in Joint Vision 2020 for working in concert with allied and coalition forces, especially in order to effectively coordinate counter-terrorism education and training efforts within this strategic region. This is particularly important in areas where the infrastructure is developing and areas where environmental and geopolitical conditions are unsettled. PIMS assist in building allied and friendly military capabilities while providing US forces with peacetime and contingency access and can augment future en route infrastructure support. PIMS R&D funding will also be critical to the development of system enhancements necessary to support the proposal to build an improved PfP education and training framework. The plan envisions a lead role for PIMS to provide research, development, and specialized engineering services in support of a distributed education environment via a Consortium of Defense Academies and Security Institutes; and exercise simulation network; and a cooperative network of nationally sponsored PfP training centers. In support of the transformation of security cooperation, a pillar of the D.O.D. framework to change warfighting capabilities, PIMS has established a cooperative project with the National Defense University (NDU) for collaborative curricula development and integration of Advanced Distributed Learning capabilities to promote international professional military education requirements that advance contemporary doctrine, policies, and procedures to enhance political-military relationships and international security objectives. Other senior D.O.D. policy directed PIMS initiatives include an electronic crisis information exchange capability, bilateral emergency medicine curriculum development, and environmental security initiatives. Finally, R&D dollars must be made available for PIMS technical development efforts associated with the Defense Information Infrastructure (DII), Global Information Grid (GIG) interoperability initiatives, and conformance with the Clinger-Cohen Act.
