The joint Combatant Commanders require responsive information exchange between combined forces and the joint combatant commands region-to-region for global operations. In a concerted endeavor, the combatant commands (COCOMs) and the Assistant Secretary of Defense for Networks and Information Integration (ASD[NII])CENTRIXS Program Office(CPMO)are building a common global multinational information sharing enterprise called CENTRIXS; Combined Enterprise Regional Information Exchange System.
CENTRIXS is the premier network for coalition interoperability in support of military operations. Ongoing coalition operations continue to test and prove the viability of the CENTRIXS enterprise. Information flow to coalition partners via the multiple versions of CENTRIXS networks achieved unprecedented volume and continues to expand. CENTRIXS dissemination capabilities must become even more robust as the trend to move more command and control operations to the coalition networks continues.
