Winning With the Network: Securing Data in Motion to the Tactical Edge

Winning With the Network: Securing Data in Motion to the Tactical Edge

Adversary capabilities in electronic warfare, cyber, and advanced kinetic weapons will make it difficult to sustain a secure, reliable network that can support universal sensor-to-shooter connection and rapid decision making. This session will explore how DoD and commercial partners are creating a resilient, robust network by taking advantage of technologies such as 5G, mesh networking, edge connectivity, software-defined networking, and AI-enabled on-the-fly network configuration.

The Cost of AI

The Cost of AI

Traditional budgeting plans for developing, training, and deploying the latest applications. However, these factors may generalize the cost of long-term sustainment and transformation needed for agile adaptation to technology disruptions. When planning for an artificial intelligence (AI) solution, disruption should be an expected cost driver throughout its lifecycle. The increasing interconnectivity of the rapidly growing enterprise AI ecosystem further complicates estimates of the cost of AI solutions. Responding to disruption for one AI solution may require coevolution of connected solutions. AI underpins the advancement of future combat and integrated defense capabilities. Failure to incorporate and keep pace with AI solutions places our warfighters at risk as our adversaries adapt to the continuously changing technology landscape. A systems perspective considers how our responses to disruption affect the costs of AI in relation to the mission, the warfighter, and sustainment. This discussion organizes views about AI cost drivers and the nuances characterizing them. We will cover disruption scenarios and how to improve the effectiveness of budgeting AI to sustain funding for mission readiness.

AF IT Modernization and Digital Transformation Forum

The remote work force is here to stay.  This relatively rapid expansion of the Air and Space Force’s digital footprint comes with a growing number of infrastructure challenges and cyber security threats, requiring leaders to re-assess how networks and services are delivered. While JADC2, zero trust, artificial intelligence, and machine learning remain at the forefront of most senior leader discussions today, many of these are dependent on an aging infrastructure unable to meet the demands of our warfighters today.
