Phone: (703) 325-2915

Project Summary

Army DIMHRS is a Congressionally-mandated Integrated Personnel & Pay System (IPPS) designed to provide the Army with integrated, multi-component personnel and pay.

Description
The Army system will create one personnel record per Soldier for their entire career, and will automate pay procedures so that personnel actions automatically trigger associated pay events. The Web-based IPPS will feature a self-service capability that allows the service member to update portions of their personal information 24 hours a day.

The personnel records will also be available to HR professionals, combatant commanders, personnel and pay managers, and other authorized users throughout the Army. The personnel and pay functionality in the IPPS addresses inefficiencies in the delivery of military personnel and pay services, such as incorrect pay and inaccurate credit of service, which are caused by complex interfaces between multiple systems with numerous opportunities for error. In addition, personnel actions in the IPPS (e.g., a promotion or activation) will automatically compute associated pay events, leaving fewer opportunities for error.

Products and Services:

*Deployed Theater Accountability System (DTAS), the world’s first enterprise-wide Secret Internet Protocol Router Network (SIPRNet) personnel accountability system, provides near real-time data on individual personnel status, unit strengths and deployment history.  DTAS is a client-server application that allows tactical units uninterrupted access to their data, while still updating higher headquarters when communications are available.  DTAS has a Web-enabled component for Theater/
Command level personnel to manage units and analyze the data.  This visibility is vital in determining the war fighting capability of the Army and subordinate commands within a specific theater.  DTAS can provide commanders and personnel specialists with near real-time accountability of deployed military personnel, civilians, contractors and foreign nationals in Theater by name, social security number, unit, location and day.  It consists of an enterprise server suite, theater server suite(s), and the unit mobile system(s). It can operate under battlefield communications environments with limited bandwidth, intermittent connectivity or within operational constraints while disconnected.


The DTAS Mobile User System hierarchy extends theater level command down to tactical battalions and separate companies, using each unit’s existing computer infrastructure linked to theater. Each mobile system reports on unit personnel and synchronizes with the theater server suite.  The theater suite provides deployment history data to the enterprise suite.  The enterprise suite interfaces with numerous personnel management systems to provide DTAS with descriptive personnel data, eliminating the need for duplicative data entry.

All Soldiers, plus select DoD civilians in the Central Command (CENTCOM) Area of Operations are being tracked in DTAS.  DTAS is expanding into the continental United States. 
*Tactical Personnel System (TPS) is a stand-alone portable system providing essential  personnel functionality to support a commander’s tactical decision-making process by creating a deployable “go to war” personnel strength automated file.  TPS functionality provides soldier accountability, personnel manifesting, jump manifesting, and task force and crew building.  Units manifest arriving/departing individuals in TPS before arrival or departure. TPS has the ability to export a Soldier manifest file as input to the DTAS, allowing mass Soldier import at arrival in theater at a port of debarkation.  This is unclear..

*The Electronic Military Personnel Office (eMILPO) system is a Web-based single database providing real-time update capability, used by the active army personnel community to manage all active, mobilized reserve, and National Guard Soldiers.  eMILPO provides information to more than 40 other Army and DoD systems including DTAS, DEERS, ITAPDB, TOPMIS, and EDAS.  eMILPO’s MyERB module allows every active enlisted Soldier to view his or her record online from anywhere in the world.  eMILPO’s reporting and analysis tools allow commanders and staff at all levels to determine unit personnel readiness, OPTEMPO, and current unit status.
