Zero Trust is a strategic approach to cybersecurity that secures an organization by eliminating implicit trust and continuously validating every stage of digital interaction. It’s a way for government agencies and departments to build resilience into their IT environments. Read on to learn more.
C4ISRNET explored service-led initiatives to improve data management in the cloud, such as the Army’s Enterprise Cloud Management Agency, the Navy’s new cloud computing policy, and the Air Force’s migration to a cloud environment last year.
What used to take months, perhaps years, to design is now being achieved in a matter of weeks in many cases.It’s all enabled through a concept known as digital engineering, a holistic approach to designing, developing and testing defense systems in virtual environments before any part hits the production line. And engineers at Raytheon Intelligence & Space, a Raytheon Technologies business, are no strangers to digital engineering.
Data management is required to keep information flowing throughout the armed forces, allowing everyone from commanders in the Pentagon to shooters in the field to make accurate, real-time decisions. In this webcast, we’ll explore service-led initiatives to improve data management in the cloud, such as the Army’s Enterprise Cloud Management Agency, the Navy’s new cloud computing policy, and the Air Force’s migration to a cloud environment last year.
C4ISRNET will checked on progress with a leading prototype project to test this agile approach for missile warning satellites, as the Space Force works toward a common C2 ground service for all of its space systems.
Defense News spoke to Scott McGleish, the executive director of Space and C2 for Raytheon, about JADC2, considerations for how to implement it across the services, as well as the recent shift in leveraging open source capabilities from industry.
In this panel, we spoke with with Army leadership about recent and upcoming Project Convergence demonstrations, and how these efforts push Army closer to achieving the Defense Department’s vision of Joint All-Domain Command and Control.
For years, the U.S. has enjoyed mostly uncontested status as the world’s preeminent space power. Aggressive space expansion by China and Russia is now disrupting that narrative, however. As these near-peer competitors devote massive resources to delivering next-gen capabilities that match or surpass existing U.S. space systems, it’s forced the DoD to recognize the limits of its traditional space acquisition and look for ways it can deliver capabilities faster.
We caught up with Chief Data Officer Thomas Kenney to talk about what challenges remain and what insights operators are learning that could help the military scale successes. Some SOCOM AI projects include streamlining logistics, harnessing big data for better-informed battlefield decisions, and even predicting when a tank or a jet needs maintenance to avoid failure at a critical moment.
