The Defense Imagery Management Operations Center (DIMOC), which is the operational arm of Defense Visual Information, provides full-spectrum management, distribution and archiving of VI in support of U.S. military activities and operations around the globe. 

While DIMOC does not create VI content, it operates three specialized VI management centers to facilitate the planning, collection, and distribution of VI documentation around the globe through Combat Camera, Public Affairs and other VI capabilities, assist those who use VI, and ensure the preservation of historic VI from across the DoD. 

DIMOC operates three specialized functions:

  • The Joint Combat Camera Center (JCCC), located at Fort Meade, Maryland, coordinates the ingest of current still and motion imagery produced by DoD visual information professionals around the world. The JCCC also works with the Joint Staff and Combatant Commands to resolve transmission problems, coordinate operational guidance and provide support to deployed Combat Camera teams. 

  • The VI Records Center, located in Riverside, California, provides DoD enterprise-level records management and maintains the DoD’s physical and digital imagery archives. The Records Center also provides records distribution and the archival preservation of physical DoD-owned media, and is the funnel for DoD visual records to the National Archives and Records Administration (NARA). 

  • The VI Services Center, located at Tobyhanna Army Depot, Pennsylvania, coordinates DoD and public visual information customer fulfillment, and is the primary point of contact for DoD, Federal agencies, NATO partners and the American public for acquiring Defense Imagery products, programs and services. The Services Center also provides timely customer service relating to Visual Information policy, DVIDS, dimoc.mil, and VI order fulfillment.
