The facets of National Security - Person, Physical Space, and Sensor Fusion - are hinged around the need for critical infrastructure at the edge that enables immediately actionable data where a millisecond delay can mean life or death. The IOMT Edge Platform on the Autonomy Institute Alpha Lab at Texas Military Department (TMD) Camp Mabry in Austin, TX, coincides with the deployment of PINN infrastructure. The PINN is the first unified open standard to support 5G wireless, Edge Computing, Radar, Lidar, enhanced GPS, and Intelligent Transportation Systems (ITS) and solves current infrastructure challenges. The Alpha Lab is part of operationalizing the PINN, which will have significant implications for disaster response. PINNs will enable TMD to accelerate emergency and disaster response and facilitate humanitarian assistance with disaster relief and domestic operations.
What this means in the context of our nation's security and helping the nation move faster is tied to the innovation that comes from public-private partnerships - and why leveraging commercial technology is essential to field within the DoD rapidly.
