Heightening Situational Awareness in the Battlespace
For military operators, the definition of ‘edge’ can range from forward operating bases, in-theatre operations, naval and aerospace and beyond. In remote and challenging locations, access, visibility and connectivity can be a major barrier.
Military forces need accurate and real-time, or at the very least up-to-date, information; mission success depends on it. Smart Edge and IoT technology combined with Edge AI and Machine Learning deployment make it possible to analytically process valuable information on a wide range of assets, coordinate complicated manoeuvres and create a strong situational awareness.
As a critical part of today’s and the future’s armed forces, Smart Edge and IoT provide a vital understanding of the battlespace, allowing decision-makers to change the course of action and direct successful operations. The rate at which this technology is advancing and being implemented is unparalleled, providing military operators with a significant battlefield advantage.
Typical defence applications for monitoring, battlefield tactics, espionage and seeking and recovery of information include:
