Abstract

dFuzion engineers have worked with soldiers in several military exercises, including Naval Warfare Development Command¿s (NWDC) Fleet Battle Experiments and the Joint Forces Command¿s (JFCOM) Forward Look Experiments. In these experiment sets, we designed and developed a lightweight intelligent bandwidth video dissemination architecture that allowed soldiers with limited bandwidth capabilities to receive video and telemetry information from operational UAVs. Although dFuzion engineers have proven the ability to transmit situational awareness information to the warfighter with unreliable and limited resources, the ability to adapt this capability for incident management has yet to be demonstrated. dFuzion proposes designing and demonstrating a lightweight, deployable, and scalable Intelligent Sensor Distribution Architecture (ISDA) that allows multi-spectral sensor information to be acquired and distributed to users at all levels of incident response (local, state, and federal). ISDA is envisioned to become an integral component of UICDS. The ISDA concept of intelligent delivery of source content to users in near real-time using multiple transmission means could significantly fit within the emerging streaming media market (video/audio on demand, etc).
