Leveraging the Internet of Things for a More Efficient and Effective Military
The CSIS Strategic Technologies Program hosted a launch event for their September report, “Leveraging the Internet of Things for a More Efficient and Effective Military.” The Internet of Things (IoT) is transforming the way organizations communicate, collaborate, and coordinate everyday business and industrial processes. While the Department of Defense (DoD) pioneered many of the core technologies that serve as the foundation of IoT, today the U.S. military is struggling to keep pace with commercial IoT development.
In the report, Denise E. Zheng and William A. Carter of CSIS examine how the military can better leverage internet of things (IoT) technologies to deliver new capabilities and cost savings. On Tuesday, November 10 experts discussed the report and its recommendations, and participated in a question and answer session about DoD’s efforts to adopt IoT technologies which are becoming increasingly central to enhancing combat effectiveness.
