Interconnected devices, machines and things affect every facet of industry and modern life, including consumer and retail spaces or industrial and manufacturing plants implementing environmental sensors, automation and edge computing. Technology has even changed modern warfare
During the same period, the market has seen the rapid adoption of centralized cloud computing services. Organizations have attempted to create sustainable competitive advantages using the cloud’s benefits, namely the ability to deliver more agile IT infrastructure at a reduced cost.
But centralized cloud computing appears ill-suited for the era of network-centric tactical engagement. The mismatch is partly because of the outsourced, centralized nature of cloud computing and partly because of the untenable nature of applying traditional cloud application architectures to deployment scenarios characterized by impermanent and transient infrastructure.
HOW WE DO IT
Tactical edge computing can be described as decentralized cloud computing whereby services can be used in geographically remote areas where reliance on communication with a centralized cloud is no longer needed. Given this decoupling of traditional cloud architectures, organizations can shape tactical edge computing to suit the environment. Decentralized computing will usher in the era of the “bizarre” looking data centers — such as forward operating bases, personnel carriers, or data centers in a box.
More importantly, tactical edge computing will enable augmented intelligence for warfighters and first responders by embracing distributed application development and deployment. Distributed computing is the key to delivering real-time performance for data processing and data fusion algorithms that will drive innovation, such as real-time threat assessment and response, autonomous traffic systems for emergency services and precision navigation. These are future applications that will save lives by decentralizing decision-making and bringing the power of real-time data to the field.
WHY WE DO IT
The internet of military things is no trend. It’s imperative for the success and safety of civilians, first responders and warfighters in dangerous situations worldwide. The foundation of the internet of military things is tactical edge computing. It is coming, and in the future it will become a national imperative to create a secure, resilient and strong infrastructure capable of meeting the needs of the nation and the world.
