JITC also certified VITEC’s MGW Pico and Pico TOUGH encoders. JITC is the DoD’s joint interoperability certifier and the only non-service operational test agency for information technology/national security systems, responsible for ensuring Joint Warfighting IT capabilities are interoperable.
VITEC, has been awarded a contract by the Canadian Department of National Defence (DND) to procure over 1,000 of the company’s MGW Diamond TOUGH encoders.
