ManTech introduces STEP for real-time data analytics
ManTech has introduced its Secure Tactical Edge Platform (STEP) to deliver real-time data analytics to field combatants, the company announced on 7 May.
The high-bandwidth capable, ruggedised, secure and scalable solution leverages micro-services delivered via cloud technology to cull data at the tactical edge and provide computer and storage capabilities.
Military personnel operating at the front line or conducting close-in reconnaissance of hostile forces can communicate on a secure cloudlet that can operate standalone, or, as the need arises, connect to affiliate US military cloudlets for tactical support from ground, air or naval forces.
Andrew Twomey, senior vice president and general manager pf Mission Solutions and Services Group’s Army Business Unit at ManTech, said: ‘Until now, warfighters operating at the tactical edge have been hampered by slow systems that force them to connect back to the core network for complex analytics. Our solution is a significant ‘STEP up’ over conventional capabilities, delivering real-time access to analytics at the tactical edge.’
