Abstract : The purpose of the Technical Reference Model described in this document is to provide a common conceptual framework, and define a common vocabulary so that the diverse components within the DoD can better coordinate acquisition, development, and support of DoD information systems. The Technical Reference Model also provides a high-level representation of the information system domain showing major service areas. DoD Components are required to apply the model to increase commonality and interoperability across the DoD, as directed by the Director of Defense Information (DDI) Policy Memorandum of 12 February 1992, Subject: Open Systems Implementation and the Technical Reference Model. On 25 August 1992, the DDI approved the use of the first update to the Technical Reference Model for Information Management (Version 1.2) (see Appendix C). The model is not a specific system architecture. Rather, it establishes a common vocabulary and defines a set of services and interfaces common to DoD information systems. The reference model and standards profile define the target technical environment for the acquisition, development, and support of DoD information systems. The objectives to be achieved through application of the technical reference model presented in this document are as follows: 1) improve user productivity; 2) improve development efficiency; 3) improve portability and scalability; 4) improve interoperability; and, 5) promote vendor independence.
