​For those of you interested in history, specifically requirements history, I just posted the Joint Staff Memo of Policy, MOP 77, Requirements Generation System (RGS) Policies and Procedures, signed by Lt Gen Henry Viccellio, (then) Director, Joint Staff, on 17 Sep 1992.  

For those who’ve not been in the business prior to the dawn of JCIDS, the DoD RGS is the precursor to the current DoD JCIDS.

5 Dec 2022 Update.  We're updating an older announcement that is still appicable to the requirements workforce.  The Geospatial Information and Services (GI&S) Officer Training Course (GOTC) is available virtually.

The course is taught by the National Geospatial Agency (NGA) College and provides an overview of the community, process, data, and products associated with the responsibilities of GI&S officers throughout the National System for Geospatial Intelligence (NSG).  This includes an awareness of GEOINT, GI&S fundamental principles, relevant GI&S communities, the breadth of NGA's foundation products/services, and the necessary hardware and software tools. 

NOTE for DoD RMs: the course also includes executing the process for requirements identification, research, submission, analysis, and dissemination. The course culminates in exercises to write a GI&S Annex for a Contingency Plan/Operation Plan(CONPLAN/OPLAN). 

This course would be beneficial to anyone wanting to know more about GEOINT and how to access and use it. More information is located here: – requires CAC login.

Registration is free & managed through blackboard. If interested in sharing or enrolling yourself, please contact the Course Manager, Mr. James Hotchkiss, at 314-676-0433, or [email protected]
