DTIC IACs: On-call Technical Expertise for the US Military
$18M to Alion for Special Ops mobile repair systems under WSTIAC contract. (Nov 22/10)
The US Department of Defense’s Information Analysis Centers (IACs) are research and analysis organizations operated by the Defense Technical Information Center (DTIC). Chartered by the DoD to help researchers, engineers, scientists and program managers, IACS offer specialized research staff to DoD agencies and military services.
The mission of the IACs is 2 two-fold: (1) IACs provide access to worldwide scientific and technical information to improve the productivity of personnel in the defense science and technology communities. The IACs accomplish this mission by collecting, analyzing, synthesizing, and disseminating relevant information in clearly-defined and structured subject areas; (2) IACs serve their respective fields by providing technical services and solutions…
The IACs sponsored by DTIC are:
- AMMTIAC – Advanced Materials, Manufacturing, and Testing Information Analysis Center, Rome, NY;
- CBRNIAC – Chemical, Biological, Radiological, and Nuclear Defense Information Analysis Center, Aberdeen Proving Ground-Edgewood Area, MD;
- CPIAC – Chemical Propulsion Information Analysis Center, Columbia, MD;
- DACS – Data and Analysis Center for Software, Rome, NY;
- IATAC – Information Assurance Technology Analysis Center, Herndon, VA;

Each of these centers is operated by a prime contractor that receives orders under the contract vehicle specific to that center. The more popular research subjects generate more orders.
CBRNIAC is a DoD resource for chemical, biological, radiological and nuclear (CBRN) scientific and technical (S&T) information. The CBRNIAC program acquires, processes, generates, synthesizes and disseminates CBRN Defense and Homeland Security information.
IATAC serves as a central source for information assurance (IA) vulnerability data, information, methodologies, models, and analyses of emerging technologies relating to the survivability, authenticity, and continuity of information system operation critical to national defense in support of the US agencies’ front-line missions. The prime contractor for IATAC is Booz Allen Hamilton in McLean, VA.
MSIAC is the DoD’s integrated support activity dedicated to helping both developers and users of modeling and simulation. The center provides answers to technical inquiries from all DoD segments, such as preparing reports and technology assessments on modeling and simulation topics, with the aim of facilitating information exchange amongst all DoD elements that require M&S support. The prime contractor for MSIAC is Alion Science and Technology in McLean, VA.
RIAC maintains expertise, data, and information related to reliability, maintainability, quality, supportability, and interoperability (RMQSI). RIAC services include: open registration and on-site training courses focusing on RMQSI-related subject areas; special research and problem solving studies for both military and commercial customers; data collection and analysis; guidance publications, software tools, and databases; and technical inquiry service with answers provided by RMQSI experts. The prime contractor for RIAC is Wyle Laboratories in Huntsville, AL.
SURVIAC is the DoD focal point for nonnuclear survivability/ vulnerability data, information, methodologies, models and analysis relating to US and foreign aeronautical and surface systems. SURVIAC’s scope covers the survivability of allied and other non-adversary systems against threat weapons, as well as the effectiveness of US weapons against foreign systems. The prime contractor for SURVIAC is Booz Allen Hamilton in McLean, VA.
WSTIAC provides US military communities with technical data, information and engineering services related to conventional and directed energy weapons, their development, production, fielding, and maintenance. The prime contractor for WSTIAC is Alion Science and Technology in McLean, VA.
