What is JTAPIC?

JTAPIC is a partnership among DoD intelligence, operational, medical, and materiel development communities that collects, integrates, and analyzes injury and operational data. The goal is to better understand vulnerabilities to threats and to improve tactics, techniques, and procedures and materiel solutions to prevent or mitigate traumatic injuries.

How specifically does JTAPIC help the Warfighter?

The Army has used the actionable information provided by JTAPIC to change the way it protects Warfighters from combat injuries. Modifications and upgrades have been made to vehicle equipment and protection systems, such as seat design, blast mitigating armor, and fire suppression systems. Combatant commanders have altered their tactics, techniques, and procedures in the field as a result to the incident analyses and near real-time feedback on threats provided by the JTAPIC program.

What is an Analysis Request?

Analysis Requests, also known as RFIs or Requests for Information are an avenue for a customer to obtain information on areas relating to preventing or mitigating injuries to the warfighter. These could run the range of combat event injuries to potentially accident causing injuries.

What is the JTAPIC Product Library?

The JTAPIC Product Library supports creation and search of products, analysis requests, or projects that have descriptions accompanied by data files, analyses, or reports. The Library provides a central location to both upload new products and find existing ones. The system allows project creators to choose and monitor which groups of people can view or download the product through privacy settings and a request system that ensures a need-to-know is upheld.

How do I submit an Analysis Request?

In the upper right corner of this page select "Submit Analysis Request". This will take you to the JTAPIC Analysis Request (RFI) System page. On the top left side of this subsequent page select "Analysis Requests". A dropdown menu will appear to choose "Submit a New Request". This will take you to the Analysis Request submission form. Complete and submit the form. For more detailed instructions on getting an account and submitting the Analysis Request then click HERE.

Can JTAPIC answer my request?

Follow the instructions to submit an Analysis Request. The JTAPIC Operations Manager will review your submission. After review, the Operations Manager will respond to your request. These responses typically fall into the following four categories:

  1. Your request falls within the scope of JTAPIC and will be accepted and answered by JTAPIC following the standard process outlined below;
  2. Your request has already been answered as part of a previously conducted JTAPIC analysis performed for another customer. When that happens, the JTAPIC partners will obtain the necessary approvals to release this product to you, and pending approval, that analysis will be sent to you;
  3. Your request does not fall in the scope of JTAPIC and will be denied. The reasons for the denial will be outlined by the Operations Manager and other paths forward may be discussed;
  4. Sometimes parts of the request can be answered while other parts cannot. The Operations Manager will discuss with you any portions of your request that can be answered and reasons for JTAPIC's inability to answer the other portions of your original request. The Operations Manager will ask you to resubmit your request to only include the portions of your original request that JTAPIC can answer.

What is the Analysis (RFI) process?

After you have been contacted by the JTAPIC Operations Manager and your request has been approved, the JTAPIC partners will hold a teleconference with you within a few days of approval. This teleconference will allow you to communicate to the analysts exactly what you hope to get out of the analysis and will allow the analysts a chance tell you what type of data is available, what type of analysis can be provided, and when you can expect a finished product. This back and forth dialogue between you and the JTAPIC analysts is crucial so that the exact expectation of your request can be refined and all questions can be discussed and answered prior to any analysis being performed. Once the teleconference has occurred, the request will be processed by the JTAPIC partners to identify key tasks and milestones (also known as a Work Breakdown Structure (WBS)) and a detailed schedule will be completed.

Once the WBS and schedule is finalized, you, as the customer, will be able to track the progress of your request in real-time through the use of the JTAPIC Analysis Request (RFI) Management System. If any issues arise that occur as part of the analysis that affects the scope or timeline of your request, you will be notified by the JTAPIC Program Management Office (PMO).

Upon completion of your request you will receive an email with a link to the analysis or the attached analysis. Additionally, if you would like to speak directly to the analysts who performed your request, you can ask for a briefing to review your RFI analysis product.

As part of our ongoing efforts to improve our products and process, JTAPIC always appreciate customer feedback from our customers. After you receive your completed product we encourage you to share your feedback via the feedback form located on the JTAPIC Analysis Request Management System website.
