Military Intelligence Integrated Data System (MIIDS)

The Intelligence Database [IDB] resides on the MIIDS architecture and supports general MI production. MIDB is migrating away from a mainframe environment as Version 1.0 was fielded, and the IDB mainframe was shutdown with the release of Version 2.0. DIA is the proponent agency for MIIDS and IDB.

In CONUS, the US Army Forces Command (FORSCOM) Automated Intelligence Support Activity (FAISA) at Fort Bragg, NC, had access to the MIIDS and IDB by tactical users of the ASAS. They maintained a complete copy of DIAs MIIDS and IDB and update file transactions in order to support the tactical user.

Obtaining MIIDS. There were three methods of obtaining MIIDS base loads and updates.

The initial ASAS Block I software does not allow for direct access from ASAS to the FAISA System to accomplish file transfer of MIIDS and IDB files. To get to the data, the unit will need an intermediate host on the LAN that will do the job. In most cases, field service support personnel will accomplish all the file transfers for the unit.

IDB File Types. There were two types of IDB files on the FAISA System:
