Optimized Situational Awareness in the Field
By 2022, Gartner predicts that 75% of the data enterprises produce will be created and processed outside the traditional, centralized data center or cloud. Booz Allen is accelerating this computing shift. Our edge computing solutions use technology that’s already deployed on the front lines—such as vehicles, drones, or sensors—to create mesh networks of smart devices that transform the local communications environment.
Through an open, universally-distributed, and secure architecture, our edge computing platform enables devices to transmit, process, and share information seamlessly in the field. Without the need for a cloud or network for data processing, this framework increases survivability, lethality, and safety for individuals—no matter how remote the mission.
Pushing the Boundaries of Compute Beyond the IT Enterprise
Booz Allen is offering a new definition and approach to edge computing that goes far beyond the traditional enterprise: We make processing possible on the edge device itself and therefore at the point of data collection, helping organizations carry out their mission at the tactical edge.
Because of that, our solutions help defense IT decision makers and those responsible for field operations accelerate strategic decision making:
- On the digital battlefield, edge computing can increase situational understanding, reduce time from data to decision, and increase resiliency—putting the right data in the right hands at the right time.
- For fleet readiness, edge computing can predict maintenance and maintain supply chains for distributed vehicle fleets to reduce downtime and target investments to facility and equipment needs.
- For disaster preparedness and mission readiness, edge computing uses sensor fusion platforms to process, output, and visualize real-time 3D, artificial intelligence-based data. This can help responders assess the area, visualize courses of action and improve the delivery of support to victims in need.
