On today's sophisticated battlefronts, U.S. special operations forces (SOF) warfighters rely on advanced technologies to carry out their high-stakes missions. Information technology and engineered solutions providing fast communications and accurate data are of the highest importance in helping them outpace and defeat adversaries in the most challenging conflict environments.
But, make no mistake, humans protect our national security. SAIC understands that the intent of our digital engineering capabilities, artificial intelligence (AI) solutions and leading-edge IT services is to augment the effectiveness of SOF operators, not replace them. Advanced digital technology solutions in support operations lead to better mission outcomes and preserve lives.
SAIC is creating the digital thread, linking together warfighting hardware, software and equipment. This will weave together a data fabric, where digitally linked warfighters will get their information in near-real time, creating complete situational awareness across domains. Armed with a strong common operating picture, U.S. Special Operations Command (SOCOM) is able to make better informed and more effective decisions for its forces.
As a premier federal technology integrator, SAIC is delivering digital capabilities to defense organizations right now. For SOCOM, we can craft solutions for the combatant command's unique needs by picking and choosing the right elements from our deep pool of technologies and resources. SAIC interfaces with a vast industry partner ecosystem to develop solutions that integrate the best of commercially available technologies with government off-the-shelf as well as specific command-and-control equipment.
Pushing the power of cloud to the edge
Cloud computing at the tactical edge is one of SAIC's digital solutions. In austere battlefield environments, a tactical cloud from SAIC that runs on 5G can bring the benefits of dynamic compute and storage and highly secure applications and workloads, plus AI-enhanced data ingest and processing.
With our experience in supporting numerous federal organizations in the modernization and cloud migration of business applications and workloads, and as a leading government IT services provider delivering application managed services, infrastructure managed services and software engineering, we can help SOCOM with any cloud and application management challenges.
SAIC applies the adaptable and modular CloudScend family of solutions, which can assess where SOCOM is on its cloud journey and produce a strategy and roadmap to optimally move to and operate in the cloud — at multiple DOD Cloud Computing Security Requirements Guide impact levels. Through CloudScend, we can investigate holistically SOCOM's enterprise application portfolio, bringing in the right people with the right tools from our technology stack to speed operational outcomes.
