The objective of this Joint Applied Project was to examine the technical, financial, and implementation aspects for DoD transitioning POR systems to IPv6. The research outlines the initial intended useful life and limitations of IPv4 and IPv6. The financial aspects of transitioning to IPv6 are examined from a programs perspective, relative to the Program Objective Memorandum (POM). Implementation of transition strategies and mechanisms are identified and courses of action for implementing the mandatory IPv6 requirement are recommended. The principal finding of this research is that DoD Global Information Grid (GIG) assets must function in a dual IPv4/IPv6 capacity when transitioning to IPv6 in order to maintain the relevance of currently fielded programs. Furthermore, legacy GIG assets should be transitioned using Technology Refresh or Software Block upgrade programs while paying careful attention to the effects the transition has on tactical network operations.
