Abstract

At the SEI, we built an implementation of tactical cloudlets that we call KD-Cloudlet. Soldiers, emergency workers, field researchers, medics – really anyone who needs to be a cyber forager for computing resources -- can now use KD-Cloudlet to support mobile applications that:

 

•contain computation-intensive code

•collect large amounts of data in the field, or

•use large amounts of data in the cloud

 

KD-Cloudlet is freely available on GitHub: https://github.com/SEI-AMS/pycloud/
