ISSUE BRIEF

Inside the DCGS-A: Advancing Real-Time Intelligence

From September 11th to the battlefields of Iraq and Afghanistan, the United States military, homeland security and police have learned the value of information sharing. To improve situational awareness, the Department of Defense (DoD) and its component military services have developed information sharing systems (dubbed Distributed Common Ground Systems, DCGS) designed to fuse intelligence and data from a vast variety of sources, including signals, imagery and human intelligence. However, to effectively deploy this vital intelligence system, the Army and its military counterparts will have to overcome the challenges of reducing its size, weight, and power.

Download this report to learn how the Army is using cloud technologies to reduce the size, weight, and power and make the DCGS program a key part of Army operations.
