IRIS Forms and IRIS WebForms, developed by Systematic, have been certified by the US Department of Defense (DoD) to be included in the unified communications approved product list (APL).

The IRIS software underwent rigorous testing over a two-week period by the Joint Interoperability Test Command (JITC) facility at Fort Huachuca, AZ. As part of DISA, JTIC provide test, evaluation and certification services to support global net-centric war fighting capabilities under all conditions of peace and war.

IRIS Forms simplifies and structures the inputting and transfer of military information, orders and reports, using simple-to-deploy interoperability standards. The software is available in two versions: as a stand-alone application and as a server-client solution, known as IRIS WebForms.

Both versions ensure consistent data entry and transfer as the basis for rapid, reliable and often automated distribution of key information throughout the organisation or unit in question.

The IRIS software was tested in both Windows XP and Windows 7.0 environment to establish standards conformance with three different versions of Mil-Std-6040 (USMTF). The tests involved validation of several thousand messages, including numerous non-conformant ones, to ensure IRIS only detected the known defective messages, as well as generating messages compliant with the USMTF standard.

Successful completion of these stringent test means that IRIS Forms and IRIS WebForms are now listed on the US DoD’s APL.
