The Pentagon will launch more projects related to cloud operations. The report said that the JEDI project will be the largest military IT contract for American commercial companies so far, and will be responsible for the storage and distribution of mission data and confidential information for the global US forces. Brigadier general David Klum, deputy director of demand affairs at the Joint Chiefs of staff of the US Joint Chiefs of staff, said that the project is not a simple IT system. The final result of the project, he pointed out, was a fiber - like army of US soldiers and equipment all over the world, F-35 fighters flying from high altitude, to submarine underwater nuclear submarines, even the most remote corners of the earth, to get their own tasks and the information they need. Some analysts have pointed out that JEDI is actually part of The Pentagons cloud Operations Project in recent years. Since the US Air Force first introduced the concept of cloud in the field of operations in 2013, the concept has been quickly recognized by the US Army. According to the idea of The Pentagon, the so-called cloud operations, through high-speed, secure network connections, share data between various types of ships, aircraft, satellites and even individual soldiers to realize information sharing in the field of air, ground, sea and space, and to maximize the use of stealth aircraft and precision strike weapons. The advanced command and control system, as well as the advantages of combining people with unmanned systems, ensure that the enemys attack on a single combat unit will not paralyse the operations of the US Army. American aviation weekly published a cloud combat concept map, describing the satellite, early-warning aircraft, fighter aircraft, marine aviation combat groups, UAVs, new remote bombers and other combat units to jointly build air superiority clouds through network connections to form a multi-dimensional operational system, clearly showing the US Army The whole picture of the concept of cloud warfare. Mike Wayne, the former US Air Force minister, pointed out that the concept of cloud warfare would be a new part of the US Army to activate the potential of the new information equipment and to ensure the cross generation advantages of its opponents. The report points out that since the concept of cloud operation has been put forward, the US Army has carried out some operational tests on some of its capabilities. For example, in order to interconnect equipment in Afghanistan, the US Air Force urgently developed battlefield airborne communications node payload for Global Hawk UAVs, and Boeing also designed a dedicated communication pod for five generation and four generation of Unicom, which is planned to be installed on the F-15 fighter to meet the Pacific Ocean. The emergency needs of the air force. In addition, the US Army has verified the new knight mobile communication command system of Knight knight. In nature, the system is a battlefield data and information collector, consisting of a touch panel and a radio device. The touch panel is worn in front of the soldiers chest or forearm. It can be used to send short messages and voice calls, and can also display the location of the surrounding terrain, friendly troops and targets; the wireless device can implement encrypted data letters. Interest transmission. The probationer said the Knight Knight system could help the commander understand the position of the subordinates, superiors and reinforcements at any time, and help to formulate detailed operational plans. After formally shaping and equipping the troops, it will be a great change in command and control field. The website of defense No. 1 believes that despite the current tense situation in the United States, the verification and research and development of the concept of cloud operations still have an unshakable priority, as well as some flexibility, such as the development of cloud operations with the mature Internet cloud technology of American business companies. It can not only provide the best solutions for our cloud operations, but also save a lot of money, and the cost is very high, said Alan Caude, the Deputy Secretary of the US Defense Department. Another vice minister, Patrick Shanahan, said that after the JEDI project, The Pentagon will also launch more other projects related to the concept of cloud warfare. He said: in proportion, JEDI projects are less than 20% of them. The Pentagon will strengthen contacts with more cloud suppliers in the coming years and give more contracts to them, such as the DEOS project, which is expected to have a total of $8 billion. According to a report in a report by the US Del Tek consultancy, which focuses on government spending data, the 2017 fiscal year shows that The Pentagon is about $2 billion 300 million for cloud projects, and it is expected that by 2022, the The Pentagon will spend 20% more money on the concept of cloud operations.
