Creating the Data Fabric for Tactical Edge with Software-Defined Wide Area Networking
A software-defined WAN (SD-WAN) can establish a data fabric capable of dealing with any tactical edge scenario where reliable WAN is needed.
Energy Storage for Military Applications Faces Demands for More Power
Mobile electronics for the battlefield go hand-in-hand with batteries, and have done so for years. It’s not news that electronics that can’t be plugged-in relies on the energy-storage medium of batteries.
Strength in Numbers
CESMO and the Power of EW Interoperability - knowing the precise location of threats and friendly forces is essential to increasing warfighter survivability.
Secure Wireless Communication Supports Mounted and Dismounted Connectivity
Secure wireless communications (SWC) technology for vehicle-to-vehicle (V2V) and vehicle-to-end user device (V2E) communication is useful for tactical environments as it improves network flexibility and operational maneuverability while reducing management complexity and cost.
Secure Wireless Solutions for Tactical, Expeditionary, + Deployable Communications
U.S. Department of Defense (DoD) tactical/expeditionary networking and command post programs have widely acknowledged the critical need to improve mobility.
Protecting and Analyzing Data from Unmanned Platforms at the Edge of the Battlefield
A key driver for the use of unmanned platforms is their ability to collect data without putting warfighters in harm's way.
Rugged Computing Takes on the Battlefield Networking Challenge
Connectivity, networking, SWaP, and thermal management are among the highest priorities of rugged computing designers to support mobile warfighters at the edge.
In Touch Anywhere
US services are keen to provide SATCOM to frontline units and enable communication on the move worldwide. Shephard speaks to industry experts to identify the capabilities and limitations of this emerging technology.
Data Storage: It’s All Coming Up NVMe
Non-Volatile Memory Express is fast, small, and lightweight, yet it still has something to prove when it comes to ruggedization, thermal performance, and power consumption.
Enabling the Tactical Edge in Degraded Environments
To optimize overall situational understanding (SU) in the battlefield, the US Army, Air Force, Navy and SOF are seeking new programs. These programs will adopt a variety of compute and bandwidth-intensive technologies, such as cloud-based networks.
Processing Pattern of Life Data at the Tactical Edge
Whether centralized or at the edge, one of the biggest military needs extant today is the imperative for a common operating picture (COP) with support for Pattern of Life (POL) analysis across all relevant data sets, to enable powerful capabilities such as anomaly detection, entity tracking, real-time alerting, predictive classification and historical analysis.
Navy’s NAVPLAN Integration in a Contested Sea
As rivalry returns at sea, navies are seeking dominance at the strategic, operational, and tactical levels. In this context, using networked datalinks to enable, integrate, and enhance communications is a strategic, operational, and tactical priority for navies.
