Welcome to DI2E Plugfest 2016
Exhibits E-Portal


     The DI2E Plugfest is the annual demonstration of advancements in the DI2E. The purpose is to provide an environment of networked, interoperable and reusable components, within the Plugfest eXchange (PX), where vendors are able to deploy, engage with others on their capabilities, and showcase tools to provide flexible, agile and data-driven capabilities to Warfighters and the critical missions.  

     DI2E Plugfest continues to be a collaborative effort contributing to the evolution of the DI2E framework. The DI2E Framework provides interoperable and reusable components that are flexible, agile and data-driven.
