HomeAbout UsDIMOC Mission


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 fully integrates with DVIDS so that all VI records ingested into DVIDS are lifecycle managed, preserved, and become part of the DoD VI records holdings.

DIMOC operates three specialized functions:
