Independent of the administration in office, one of the top priorities for today and the next couple of decades is the deployment of Artificial Intelligence (AI) throughout all the branches of the armed forces. Many of these applications are AI Transportables requiring performance without compromise in harsh and challenging environments. This post will cover some of the driving factors, paint the picture of tomorrow and discuss how we will continue to protect our freedom with military superiority.
Although Pentagon budgets may fluctuate, impacting whether the United States builds another $10 billion aircraft carrier, the priority will remain focused on leveraging AI technology. According to a recent report, the Department of Defense is juggling more than 685 artificial intelligence projects. AI combined with autonomous capability will significantly increase the defensive and offensive effectiveness of every domain whether it is in the air, on land, at sea or in space while also putting fewer human lives at risk. Think of a tank: does it make more sense to double the number of $6 million tanks, or add $1 million of AI capabilities to a single tank and double or triple its effectiveness? Even multiple current generation tanks on the battlefield of tomorrow will stand no chance when faced with one smarter, quicker AI tank. Although these AI tanks will likely have a human on board to fire any offensive weapon, AI will take care of identifying threats, aiming, driving, and defensive maneuvers increasing the speed and efficiency.
This digital battleground will allow ships, jets, and vehicles to access information securely and make instant informed decisions functioning independently yet in conjunction with the soldier on the ground. These systems will absorb and process unimaginable amounts of data and most importantly act when all the time you have is now. It will also lead to highly resilient systems, unprecedented agility in evolving capabilities against new threats, and breakthrough technology applications.
Unlike the environmentally controlled datacenter, these use cases will require the highest level of compute performance and storage capabilities to operate and survive in the harshest environments on the planet. To maintain the superiority the country has enjoyed for a century, there will be no room for compromises on performance. Suppliers of even last year’s technology will struggle serving this fast-growing need. Therefore, One Stop Systems is uniquely qualified and focused on becoming the market leader in the AI Transportable space. OSS' compute and storage systems deliver performance without compromise with the latest technology throughout the military theater, whether it is on the land, in the air, or out at sea.
