Boeing introduces MicroTAC analysis suite

22nd May 2014 - 15:50 GMT | by The Shephard News Team


Boeing has introduced a new tactical data analytic suite that provides information analysis to soldiers when network connectivity is not available. The system, called MicroTAC, was unveiled on 20 May at the Special Operations Forces Industry Conference.

Unlike tactical data analysis methods that rely on network and internet connectivity, MicroTAC is designed to analyse data from devices such as flash drives, perform search and analysis, and confirm predictive analytics while disconnected from networks.

The system runs on a lightweight, battery-powered portable device similar to a laptop, to continuously accept data in the field and provide an accurate picture of the unfolding information environment.

Jeff Brown, director, Boeing Intelligence Systems Group, said: ‘When warfighters bring MicroTAC into theatre, they have a full suite of deployable analytic technologies at their fingertips to take in, analyse and disseminate information in near real-time, especially when communications are unreliable. This may also be important during missions when having a network connection could be detrimental or undesirable.’

MicroTAC is fully integrated with Boeing’s existing TAC software and is available to new and current TAC customers.
