Future: Sensors to Allow Soldiers to Better Share Information

Posted January 20, 2015 at 5:10am

The U.S. Defense Department’s Armed with Science blog reports that “the Army envisions a future where sensors dynamically interact with each other while sharing information with soldiers. Its researchers are one step closer to enabling this common operating environment through the development of a foundational software architecture.”  

“The Integrated Sensor Architecture, known as ISA, establishes standards that bring together sensors within an area of operation so they can talk without requiring physical integration.”  

“’You have this fundamental architecture enabling sensors to not only recognize the systems they want to interact with, but to also broker the information exchanges,’ said Joe Durek, deputy director for the Modeling and Simulation Division of the Communications-Electronics Research, Development and Engineering Center’s Night Vision and Electronic Sensors Directorate.”
