  • Abstract

    Through increasingly sophisticated but often special-purposed devices, warfighters on patrol are now or will be soon linked into their communications network as information gatherers and users and as recipients of situational awareness data. Warfighters—as well as emergency first responders and others operating in similar resource-poor environments—need reliable, real-time access to mission-critical information without the addition of (and weight of) multiple, special-purpose devices. This information sheet describes experiments using SEI-developed prototypes to determine the feasibility of using service-oriented computing on smartphones in tactical network environments.
