October 2012 - Technical Note Cloud Computing at the Tactical Edge

Topics: Pervasive Mobile Computing

This technical note presents a strategy to overcome the challenges of obtaining sufficient computation power to run applications needed for warfighting and disaster relief missions. It discusses the use of cloudlets-- localized, stateless servers running one or more virtual machines--on which soldiers can offload resource-intensive computations from their handheld mobile devices.

August 2012 - Conference Paper A Reference Architecture for Mobile Code Offload in Hostile Environments

This paper presents a reference architecture for mobile devices that overcomes resource and connectivity limitations by exploiting cloudlets.
