  3. 3. Introduction• Technology is a strategic weapon across all industriesand organizations, now it is also true in the case ofmilitary and the Department of Defence(DoD).• The DoD is well known for its hardware-basedweaponry, unmistakable in aircraft, satellite, missilesand other systems in its arsenal for defending thecountry.5/22/2013 GVPCE(A) 3
  4. 4. Contd..There are Threemajor groups underthe Department ofDefence(DoD)•Army•Air Force•Navy5/22/2013 GVPCE(A) 4
  5. 5. Need of Software in Defence• As the defence shifts its focus from metal andmechanics to unmanned vehicles, drones, and smartbombs, software is becoming a crucial piece ofweaponry.• As an Air Force general explains it, “The B-52 aircraftwas lived and died on the quality of its sheet metal.Today our aircraft will live or die on the quality of oursoftware.”5/22/2013 GVPCE(A) 5
  6. 6. Contd..• As advanced software systems and embeddedsoftware technologies become the brains behindmodern warfare.• From remotely piloted aircraft and smart bombs toautonomous vehicles and advanced fighterjets, software is crucial to the success of today’sweapons systems.• Measure  Source Lines of Code(SLOC)5/22/2013 GVPCE(A) 6

  10. 10. The Platform for Defence• The Platform Layer : Microsoft provides asecure, scalable and easy to manage foundation onwhich defence organisations can overlay theapplications they need.• It provides a foundation of certain capabilities onwhich the technologies and applications required tomanage defence.5/22/2013 GVPCE(A) 10
  11. 11. Contd.. Applications and Devices CapabilityIt enables defence personnel and commandersanywhere to work effectively using PCs, PDAs, TabletPCs, phones and notebooks.Technologies :Windows Vista™, Windows Mobile, MicrosoftOffice.5/22/2013 GVPCE(A) 11
  12. 12. Contd.. Network CapabilityProvide a unifying layer of common servicesacross your entire environment with technologies thatconnect people and systems securely and reliably.Technologies :Windows Server, Microsoft VirtualServer, Windows Storage Server.5/22/2013 GVPCE(A) 12
  13. 13. Contd.. Security CapabilityEnsure end-to-end protection to implementnetworked solutions confidently across the entireenvironment.Technologies :Microsoft Identity Integration Server, MicrosoftInternet Security and Acceleration Server, MicrosoftForefront™ Security.5/22/2013 GVPCE(A) 13
  14. 14. Contd.. Collaboration CapabilityIt Connects defence personnel and commanderswith the information and resources they need to workmore efficiently.Technologies :Microsoft Exchange Server, Microsoft OfficeSharePoint Server, Microsoft Office Communicator.5/22/2013 GVPCE(A) 14
  15. 15. Contd.. Communications Capability:It enable defence personnel and commanders toCommunicate in the way that suits the situation byswitching seamlessly between videoconferencing, telephone, email and instant messaging.Technologies:Microsoft Communications Server, Microsoft LiveMeeting.5/22/2013 GVPCE(A) 15
  16. 16. Commercial Software(CS) Vs. Opensource Software(OSS)The most obvious contrast between the twoapproaches is that OSS allows the originalsource code of a program to be made freelyavailable to the public for modification andredistribution.Where as CS is created by certified commercialdevelopers. Over the past few years, a series ofcritical considerations has motivated militaryorganisations to adopt Commercial Softwarefor their mission-critical deployments for theSecurity purposes.5/22/2013 GVPCE(A) 16
  17. 17. Network Centric Warfare(NCW)• Network-Centric Warfare is acommand system thattranslates the rapid andsecure sharing of informationamong combat superiority.• NCW enables militaryorganisations to shareintelligence and informationprocess it and then react to itin a timely manner.5/22/2013 GVPCE(A) 17
  18. 18. Software Solutions in ArmyMicrosoft Military Messagingsolutions :• It enable defenceorganisations to issueformal communicationswith speed and ease.• Official reports, notices andother information can besent with integrity andconfidentiality .• All messages are fullyauditable and can bearchived for up to 30 years.5/22/2013 GVPCE(A) 18

  20. 20. Contd..Fusion Net: Fusion Net is a distributed system deployed by the U.S. Armyto disseminate ‘ground truth’ intelligence and unitmanagement information throughout the Battle space. Before Fusion Net, battlefield event information was scatteredamong numerous Army systems and databases, whichcouldn’t communicate with one another.5/22/2013 GVPCE(A) 20
  21. 21. Contd.. Fusion Net provides the communication of informationamong different systems and databases in real time. It is implemented throughout the current theatre ofoperations so that the data capture rate and, the informationavailability rate for battlefield events to increase from 75 to1500 percent.5/22/2013 GVPCE(A) 21
  22. 22. Contd..Distributed Common Ground System-Army (DCGS-A) The DCGS-A family of systems ensures that the essentialintelligence and battle space awareness information from allintelligence sources is provided to the Army War fighter whenand where they need it. The system’s capabilities are based on a service-orientedarchitecture (SOA) that enables the delivery of multiple levelsof intelligence data (voice, video, and geospatial) tocombatant commanders.5/22/2013 GVPCE(A) 22
  23. 23. Contd..Distributed Common Ground System-Army (DCGS-A) DCGS-A uses the latest cloud technology to rapidlygather, collaborate and share intelligence data from multiplesources to the battlefield commanders. With this system we can Increase the situational awarenessand reduces risk to the Commander when executing missions.5/22/2013 GVPCE(A) 23
  24. 24. Software Solutions in Navy• Polar Navy : It is an efficient, user friendly, cross-platform marinenavigation software. It provides consistent user experience with native look andfeel on Apple Mac OS , Microsoft Windows and Linuxsystems, Apple iPhone and iPad mobile devices.5/22/2013 GVPCE(A) 24

  27. 27. Contd..Polar view MX :• It is a marine app for Apple iOS.• It acts as a Vector and Raster chart viewer for iPhone andiPad.5/22/2013 GVPCE(A) 27
  28. 28. Software Solutions in Air Force• Net-T(Network Tactical) A software upgrade called Net-T effectively turns U.S. Warplanes into wireless routers in the sky, Allowing ground forcesto share information with each other.5/22/2013 GVPCE(A) 28
  29. 29. Contd.. Using Net-T, commanders on the ground can share videodata, map coordinates and other information types withoutthe use of traditional satellite or radio communication. Requirement: The groups on the ground need line of sight to the aircraft inthe air, this opens up communication possibilities to supportground operations across all services.5/22/2013 GVPCE(A) 29
  30. 30. Contd..How to operate:• Elliott tested Net-T on the A-10 Thunderbolt II ground attackaircraft and said that the system doesnt require a lot of inputfrom the pilot once its properly configured.• Its a single button push, After that, the pilot must maintainwithin the range and stay up with the users.• Net-T will be in operational use by 2014.5/22/2013 GVPCE(A) 30
  31. 31. ConclusionThe transition of defence from Platform centric warfareto the Network centric warfare the usage of emergingtechnologies in software is ever increased so that the Software isbecoming a crucial piece of Weaponry in the modern defencesystem.5/22/2013 GVPCE(A) 31
