The National Imagery Transmission Format Standard (NITFS) is the suite of standards for formatting and exchanging digital imagery and imagery-related products defined by the United States Department of Defense (US DoD). This standard allows for interoperability of systems used for formatting, transmitting, receiving, and processing imagery and imagery-related information, and describes the National Imagery Transmission Format (NITF) file format. For full background on the origination and purpose, and specifications of this standard, refer to the Department of Defense Interface Standard MIL-STD-2500B and the NITFS Technical Board Public Page.
