DPS subsumed over 25 DoD legacy transportation and logistics systems, and includes hundreds of thousands of lines of custom Java code and thousands of database tables. DPS resides in a Defense Information Systems Agency (DISA) Enterprise Computing Center (DECC) in Ogden, UT and is established in a multi-tier enterprise-class environment including failover and redundancy at each level, as well as a COOP capability in a separate DECC facility, and development, development-test and test environments at contractor facilities in VA.
CPS engineers employed industry best practices, including, but not limited to using the Aspect- Oriented Programming (AOP) based architecture, Model-Driven Design, 3-tier applications and implementation of Java-based Enterprise Integration Patterns (EIP). CPS personnel utilized all aspects of Java/JEE platform including Spring framework, JSP/Servlets, JSTL, EJB, JSF, JUnit, Struts, Spring, Hibernate, JDO, JPA, Java Mail, JCA, JAXB, Log4J, SLF4J, SOAP-based web services (JAX-RPC/JAX-WS), RESTful services and XML technologies (e.g. XML schemas, XSL stylesheets, XPATH, castor). Additionally, CPS personnel applied considerable expertise in peripheral tools and technologies that enabled the successful implementation of Java-based development project and its subsequent deployment in production. CPS personnel have designed, developed, deployed and supported in production, enterprise Java applications designed for various deployment environments such as Oracle Weblogic, RedHat JBOSS, Sun Java application server, IBM Websphere, Apache Tomcat and Sun glassfish application servers on both the Windows and unix/linux platforms.

CPS has established core capabilities relative to data intensive cross enterprise integration solutions while embracing industry standard methodologies, state-of-the-art architectural frameworks, and emerging medical and health information exchange standards. The Interagency Image Sharing / PACS Integration program involved the application of engineering and analysis techniques which resulted in the design, development, prototyping and delivery of a cross enterprise solution that enabled the first ever medical image sharing between the DoD and VA. This has resulted in measurable improvement in operational efficiency at DoD and VA medical treatment facilities by enabling physicians’ immediate access to patient radiology records. Leveraging the Agile development methodology, CPS developed the NDAA solution in accordance with Service Oriented Architecture (SOA) principles, featuring a rich set of Web Services that enables the cross-enterprise integration of disparate Picture Archive and Communications System (PACS) radiology data. Through our efforts on this program, CPS has supported the VA Strategic Plan and strategic health systems modernization efforts by providing full lifecycle IT solutions that span system design, hardware and software integration, operations, maintenance, installation, and training at both DoD Military Health System (MHS) and VA Medical Treatment Facilities worldwide. Specific to the Federal Health Care Center (FHCC) unique environment of segmented DoD and VA networks, the PACS Integration enabled DoD and VA credentialed radiologist to view diagnostic radiology on any patient whether the image was acquired on a DoD sourced modality or a VA modality. The integration leveraged existing systems including PACS, BHIE (DAS), and VA VIX (CVIX) to support DICOM Query/Retrieve, Patient Correlation, and image transmission across secured networks.

CPS has supported the U.S. Army Network Enterprise Technology Command/9th Signal Command (Army) (NETCOM/9th SC (A)) Assistant Chief of Staff (ACofS), G3/5/6/7 for over 8 years providing system, data and network engineering service functions covering multiple applications, systems and user groups. NETCOM is the single authority assigned to operate, manage, and defend the Army’s ‘Infrastructure’ at the enterprise level and authority for any standard, system, architecture, design, or device that impacts the Army Enterprise Infrastructure. CPS supported the design, deployment and sustainment of various infrastructure systems supporting US Army initiatives to include Active Directory and Exchange integration and migration, SAN engineering, and the application of backup and clustering technologies. Technology services include on-site ITIL-based Service Management, Storage Operations, Database Management Services, Security Engineering, Systems Administration, Information Assurance, and infrastructure support and facilities management services. We leverage the BMC Enterprise Services Management System (ESMS) suite to implement solid and repeatable ITIL principles across all task areas of the project. CPS senior engineering staff provides Operational Engineering (OE) for Army Enterprise and Global Network Enterprise (GNE) Nonsecure Internet Protocol Router Network (NIPRNET), SECRET Internet Protocol Router Network (SIPRNET), and Deployed Forces (DF). Further, we are responsible integration and sustainment capability management support of the Enterprise Data Center (EDC) architecture, network management toolsets, applications, related hardware and software per design and build guidance. The EDC is managed by the Theater Network Operations and Security Centers (TNOSC) and provides enterprise Information Technology (IT) services to approved Army customers. CPS staff helps integrate new EDCs and sustains existing EDCs within the Army Enterprise under highly compressed schedules in support of the Warfighter. CPS engineering staff also provides implementation and engineering support across Active, Reserve, National Guard, TNOSC, Army installations, the Army CIO/G-6, project management communities, and NETCOM/9th SC (A) ACofS, G-5, as tasked by the Government Technical Lead. The Team supported the installation, connection and configuration of Army GFE to facilitate NetOps capabilities being deployed in accordance with standard configuration and build requirements. Our teams continued efforts have helped increase effectiveness of IT services provided to the Warfighter, create an Army Intranet for unclassified traffic, reduce the total number of network gateways into the NIPRNET, and improve the Army Computer Network Defense (CND).
