Smart Data Fusion for Multi Domain Operations

Data fusion at the tactical edge is a top need for the US military's new concept for Multi-Domain Operations.  US forces came to rely on combat data networks developed in battles in Afghanistna, Iraq and Syria.  But Russia and China's electronic warfare and cyber systems threaten US combat networks.  Fortunately, the technology is ready to test smart data fusion hubs: a new type of network "box" that fits on current airplanes, ships and other platforms to process, sort and refine data in real time, at the tactical edge, while operations are underway.   Over time, the connections and processing power of smart data fusion hubs also open the door to insert artificial intelligence capabilities into battle networks.  Multi-domain operations are counting on better data fusion to achieve superiority.  Download Smart Data Fusion Hubs for Multi Domain Operations research paper PDF
