The Internet of Things for the Intelligence Community

March 1, 2016

"The Internet of Things (IoT) is today’s commercial initiative to integrate a wide variety of technical and commercial information-generating components to provide new business opportunities based on device and system intelligence. This technology is the large scale commercialization of technology that has been developed and proven by the U.S. Department of Defense and intelligence community (IC) over the past 15 years. In much the same way that NASA and the early space program in the 1960s spurred innovations in chip technology, automation, propulsion, and miniaturization, solutions developed from the concept of network-centric operations (NCO) translate directly to the foundations of today’s commercial IoT.
Given that IoT concepts originated in the military/intelligence sector, does the commercialization
of IoT provide new opportunities for this community itself? If so, how can vendors exploit these opportunities using commercial off-the-shelf (COTS) technologies
from companies such as Wind River®? This paper will address these questions."

Smart solution for sustainable cities

whitePaper | January 8, 2020

The 19th century was a century of empires. The 20th century was a century of states. The 21st century will be a century of cities.” This quote by Wellington E. Webb, former mayor of the City of Denver, seems plausible when you look at the numbers: Although cities cover only a fraction of the Earth’s surface, they are already home to more than half of the world’s population.

Private 5G Mobile Networks for Industrial IoT

whitePaper | March 1, 2020

Private mobile networks designed and deployed specifically for enterprise users provide opportunities to optimize and redefine business processes in ways that are either impractical or not possible within the limitations of wired and Wi-Fi networks. For industrial users, the ability to design mobile networks to meet the coverage, performance, and security requirements of production-critical applications is fundamental to the new wave of cyberphysical systems known as Industry 4.0.

INTERNET OF THINGS AND UEI DATA ACQUISITION & CONTROL SYSTEMS

whitePaper | February 5, 2020

The Internet of Things (IoT) is a networked system of interconnected physical objects that have the capability of sharing data with each other and also with a cloud service for archiving and analysis. With IoT, data producing devices can easily publish data, and multiple consumer clients can receive that data from any location in the world.

Global Industry Standards for Industrial IoT

whitePaper | June 2, 2021

The Industrial Internet of Things (IIoT) is a rapidly expanding world of connected objects. As IIoT systems proliferate, large amounts of data are consumed by machine learning algorithms and shared between partners, customers and others. IIoT is a technology environment in which integration and interoperability are critical capabilities and the complexity of this environment makes this difficult to achieve. Standards play a critical role in IIoT for five main reasons. First, users and vendors cannot engineer a custom interface every time components or systems need to interact. Standards can make this explosion of interfaces manageable; they are the lingua franca for interoperability. For suppliers, this eliminates needless costs related to common capabilities instead encouraging a focus on innovations that add value.

Transforming Endpoints with Artificial Intelligence

whitePaper | August 5, 2021

There has never been so much compute power available in IoT devices - now is the time to be designing and deploying true intelligence in IoT endpoints. Devices which are aware of their environment are capable of adding huge value to the data they collect and the services which they enable. This paper explores how new and emerging technology can enable your devices to see, hear and feel what is going on, interpret what they sense, take autonomous actions and generate real, trusted, valued data for the cloud. Recent developments in hardware and software will enable a step change in the capability of resource-constrained endpoint platforms, allowing developers to build vision, voice and vibration capability, coupled with genuine intelligence at the endpoint.
