Topics include training for the high-end fight, modernization of platforms, and how all their forces will prepare for the anticipated environment.

                        In the modern naval fleet, many vessels now feature onboard industrial control systems (ICS) which monitor and facilitate the operation of various machine processes.

In addition, once ships return to port, the data generated and collected from these vessels must be transferred to shore. In each of these instances, data must be securely transferred while protecting...read more...

                                                  Even as mobile platforms for reconnaissance and intelligence gathering collect an increasing amount of data, bandwidth to ground stations remains relatively limited. Performing Big Data analytics at deployed collection platforms can help make mission-critical decisions in near-real time and allow transmittal of only the most relevant data or results for further action.
