BOSTON, Mass.--(BUSINESS WIRE)--PrismTech™, a global leader in software platforms for distributed systems, will be hosting a free webcast, “DDS at the Tactical Edge – Next Generation Military Fog Computing and Cloudlets,” on July 26, 2016.
New fog computing and tactical cloudlet technologies are enabling real-time analytics and other computational functions to be performed at the tactical edge of a network, right at the data source – for example, soldiers on the battlefield. This will help enable the next generation of intelligent, mobile and autonomous military systems to send, receive and process information when and where it is needed, ensuring speedier and optimal mission-critical decision making.
The webcast will discuss the Department of Defense’s next-generation “Third Offset” initiative and how real-time data-centric network edge computing, based on the Data Distribution Service (DDS) standard, will be key to delivering on the military’s priorities for autonomous systems, increased use of robotics, miniaturization and big data.
The free webcast will be presented by Andrew Foster, Product Marketing Manager at PrismTech. Andrew has more than 20 years of experience developing distributed real-time and embedded (DRE) software applications and products for the aerospace and defense communities.
Registration for the hour-long webcast, scheduled for 9 am EDT and repeated at 2 pm EDT July 26, is available at http://www.prismtech.com/webcast-signup.
