Visit Request and Need-to-Know Statements

  • All Visit Requests must be received by May 12, 2023 and be validated by the JNWC Security Office.

  • Requests received after May 12 will be processed at the discretion of the JNWC Security Office.


    ION has been advised that, effective immediately, the Joint Navigation Warfare Center (JNWC) will only process new Visit Requests (VR) received through DISS. If you have not had a VR approved by the JNWC (VRs were due by May 12), and are unable to submit a VR through DISS, you are no longer eligible to attend the JNC’s technical meeting. If you have access to DISS, you may submit your VR following the instructions below. If you are attending JNC to work/attend the exhibit hall, you do not need a VR and may proceed to register.

    Please be advised that at the time you register, expenses are incurred on your behalf in anticipation of your participation. ION will not issue refunds for those who register for the meeting who fail to obtain the necessary VR. You may contact the ION National Office to determine if you are on the JNWC’s current cleared list at registration@ion.org, 703-366-2723, 9:00 a.m.-5:00 p.m. EDT.
  • Prospective U.S. attendees must submit their Visit Requests through DISS to SMO: JNC-JNC-1.  Use “JNC 2023” for the POC and 505-846-6143 for the phone number.
