Solutions and Technology for Information Management


Since 2006, IMT, a Mission Essential Company, has evolved into a leading provider of Information Management system engineering, software development, information assurance, and system sustainment, and is the lead provider of technical support for the Integrated Broadcast Service (IBS) enterprise.

IBS is the worldwide Department of Defense (DoD) standard network for transmitting tactical and strategic intelligence and targeting data to all levels of Joint Service operational users.

Large System Integration
A cornerstone of IMT’s competences is integrating multiple data sources into a system of systems. IMT forges its reputation as a preeminent large system integrator by providing professional services that afford our clients a deep functional knowledge base of tactical receive terminals, UHF, and Network Messaging.

Software Engineering
IMT has assembled a world-class team of engineers that are proficient in the latest engineering tools, languages, and approaches. IMT has developed the Common Interactive Broadcast (CIB) Planning Tool (CIB-PT), which provides Combatant Command (CCMD) planners the capability to configure channel resources for more efficient and effective CIB services. This is critical to the timely dissemination to the tactical user of time-sensitive information, including targeting, threat warning, and threat avoidance.

Information Dissemination
IMT excels in systems that rapidly filter tactical and strategic data, and transmit integrated time-sensitive information to targeted users. IMT provides subject matter expertise in the areas of IBS CCMD Information Management Element (IME) policies/ procedures/processes, Integrated Waveform (IW), UHF SATCOM, and the CIB.

SATCOM Engineering
IMT has developed enabling techniques and tools for the SATCOM Common Interactive Broadcast (CIB), to include the Planning Tool (CIB-PT) and Universal CIB Test Set (UCTS). The UCTS accurately emulates the current performance characteristics of the Integrated Waveform (IW) and CIB.

Enterprise Testing
IMT is a trusted Verification & Validation (V&V) provider, utilizing advanced tools such as UCTS, which was designed by IMT personnel and was selected by the Joint Interoperability Test Command (JITC) as the primary test suite to perform CIB terminal certifications against the IBS-related MIL-STDs.

Logistics and Sustainment
IMT has built an Intermediate Support Facility (ISF) that provides depot-level troubleshooting and repair of complex SATCOM assemblies such as the Universal Serial Bus (USB) Embedded National Tactical Receiver (ENTR).
