Thermopylae Sciences + Technology Named C4ISR Journal Innovation Category First Place Award Winner For Windshear - One Of "The Years Biggest Breakthrough" Programs

(PR Web Via Acquire Media NewsEdge) Arlington, Virginia (PRWEB) November 26, 2012 Thermopylae Sciences + Technology is excited to announce the Windshear program was awarded the top prize in the C4ISR Journal Innovation Award category for Biggest Breakthroughs of 2012. The program was initially selected as one of five finalists in the Innovation category after the C4ISR Journal reviewed hundreds of activities across the Defense space. Each year, C4ISR Journal scans the world of network, sensors and intelligence looking for the new technologies and new efforts changing the way military forces and policy makers do their jobs. John-Isaac Clark, Thermopylae chief innovation officer, stated, “We are honored Windshear was selected as the top innovation by C4ISR Journal. It’s a testament to the innovative spirit that Thermopylae employee’s demonstrate every day. We congratulate the entire team involved in the Windshear effort and are grateful for the opportunity to apply our innovative solutions to the US Government mission.” Thermopylae owes a huge debt of gratitude to the late Dr. Pedro Rustan and other members of the Government team that had the vision, the drive, and tenacity to develop a blueprint for the future and see it to fruition. Thermopylae president AJ Clark said “The freedom and way of life that we all enjoy in this country would not be possible without the individual sacrifices of the men and women of the armed forces. We look for ways to take the latest technology in the commercial space and do all we can to get it into the hands of service members as rapidly as possible. As an active member of the DAV, with brothers and sisters currently serving in the military, I’m fortunate enough to see firsthand many of the heroic deeds our service members selflessly engage in year after year” he added.

As noted by C4ISR Journal, Windshear consists of software that connects a soldier’s hand-held device to biometric data and intelligence products on the Distributed Common Ground System-Army network. Thermopylae’s iSpatial and Ubiquity software frameworks were both emerging technologies brought together to support the mission of bridging cloud data and mobile devices. Thermopylae’s close partnership with Google and their Google Earth technology is a critical element of extending data to the mobile edge. Installing Google Earth servers on Android smart phones greatly reduces bandwidth requirements and allows for a seamless user experience in connected and disconnected environments.

iSpatial is a solution that organizations like SOUTHCOM, Dept. of State, and Army G2 are using to manage their geospatial data on top of maps, imagery, and Augmented Reality. iSpatial manages geospatial data on the server side but also in the web browser that faces the user. On the user facing side, it provides a wrapper around the Google Earth web plug-in. That wrapper contains standard tools like those you would find in the Google Earth desktop software but makes them available on a web page combined with the Google Earth or Maps web interface. iSpatial was also designed to handle data that changes rapidly or that a user wants to edit, such as the location of friendly/Blue forces or the status of a bridge that troops plan to utilize. This allows any user to have access to the latest imagery and maps provided through an intuitive interface like Google Earth while viewing their organizational data and interacting with it.

Ubiquity provides a mobile application service framework for corralling the smart phone space for a variety of DoD and Government customers. Commercial corporations in the Energy, Sports, and Telecom industry are using Ubiquity to be more competitive, save money, and innovate in how they do business. DoD is in the same situation and the rapid technology disruption that has occurred with smart phones has forced system of system portfolio planners to think about how to extend their program capabilities to the mobile user.

Ubiquity provides an end point that installs as an application on an iPhone or Android device. It has various widgets that are pushed to the smart phone based on the context that the user finds themselves in. A context is merely a collection of widgets that interoperate with each other and can be determined by the geospatial location of the device or by the activity the user is performing on the device. Ubiquity was designed around the concept that no plan in the battlefield survives the first point of impact, so new contexts can be pushed to users that find their mission changing. Ubiquity supports workflow management on Androids/iPhones and can connect to other mobile applications that were built outside of Ubiquity, so that the user has a seamless experience if they need to perform a function on another mobile application. This provides the ability to make changes to the tools a mobile device has without having to download an entirely new software application to the phone. The data exchange between a cloud computing environment is coordinated through the Ubiquity software and passing imagery from a Google Map or Earth server directly to a mobile Google Map is an example of the internal technical infrastructure Ubiquity provides.

Oracle in Enterprise Communications

Most in the industry have heard of the acquisition of Acme Packet by Oracle. What you may not know is that Oracle has a number of telecommunications products including a UC suite, WebRTC Session Controller, and Operations monitoring tools. Oracle is pursuing both the enterprise and service provider.

Featured Whitepapers

WebRTC Security Concerns

This whitepaper covers two of the most relevant topics in communications industry today: WebRTC and security. We will introduce the problem of security in WebRTC including those traditional VoIP attacks that are going to be present in WebRTC services. Later we will mention ad-hoc WebRTC attacks and protection mechanisms, to close with an overview of identity management solutions.

Migrating Real Time Communications Services to the Web

In the Internet age, businesses that own fixed and mobile communication networks, including traditional Communications Service Providers (CSPs) of all kinds, are being challenged with some tough questions: How do we stay relevant to our customers?

Delivering Enterprise-Class Communications with WebRTC

WebRTC is an emerging industry standard for enabling Web browsers with real-time communications capabilities. It enables enterprises to enhance Web sites, empower BYOD users, and improve video collaboration and on-line meetings, to name but a few examples.

WebRTC Report Extract Reprint

This document examines the growing important of WebRTC, both generally and for telecom service providers. It considers the expanding range of use-cases, the multiple layers of interoperability likely to be desired by telcos, and some implications in terms of network integration and mobility.


Robust Enterprise Grade WebRTC Systems and Services

The emerging WebRTC standard has become one of the industry's hottest topics – and with good reason. Being able to "communications enable the web" has Communications Service Providers as well as Enterprises busily making plans for deployment. But, as these plans unfold, reality is starting to intrude on those plans. Our expectations of telephony services are much higher than web browsing. We expect the phone to connect instantly, operate with minimal disruption, and work seamless across any network, anywhere, at any time. There is also an understanding that phone service is inherently secure. With WebRTC, the expectation is for these applications to behave in the same manner.

This session looks at the user experience and expectations of a WebRTC Enterprise service. It will also cover how a WebRTC enterprise handles security, reliability, and interoperability within browsers and networks.


The Oracle Communications WebRTC Session Controller enables communications service providers (CSPs) and enterprises to offer WebRTC services – from virtually any device, across virtually any network – with carrier-grade reliability and security.
