The Army's program executive office for command, control and communications-tactical, along with the network cross-functional team, will host an industry day Aug 1 and 2 in Raleigh, NC regarding cloud services for tactical formations.

Cloud service providers, systems and software engineers, network architecture experts and data analytics experts are invited to discuss distributed computing for mission command and other capabilities for the tactical network.

"Capability discussions will include how the Army could leverage data analytics, artificial intelligence, machine learning, block chain, multi-level security, identity and access management and storage/delivery across Army tactical formations operating in a disconnected, intermitted and limited bandwidth (DIL) environment," the Army said.

Panels will cover data logistics, infrastructure, enterprise service architecture and the mission partner environment, according to the Army.
