The Data Management Division manages the West Desert Test Center’s (WDTC) information technology systems, provides data planning and analysis services, and programming and software development support. The preeminent component of WDTC information technology is the Test Mission Support System, used to collect, transfer, and store test data.
The Data Management Division also manages Dugway’s Information Assurance (IA) program, which measures protection and defends information and information systems by ensuring availability, integrity, authentication, confidentiality, and non-repudiation. Measures include managing risks related to the use, processing, storage, and transmission of information or data and the systems and processes used for those purposes, and providing for restoration of information systems by incorporating protection, detection, and reaction. IA encompasses not only digital information but the physical security and environment controls that house those systems.
