US Army working on cloud, data mesh capabilities for CPCE

by Carlo Munoz

The US Army officials are exploring ways to integrate cloud computing and mesh networking capabilities into the service's Command Post Computing Environment (CPCE) system, as programme officials are in the midst of implementing cyber awareness applications in the platform.

CPCE officials and their counterparts at the army's Command, Control, Communications, Computers, Cyber, Intelligence, Surveillance, and Reconnaissance (C5ISR) directorate are working to evaluate the Rainmaker mesh data fabric application for artificial intelligence (AI)-enabled data networking and management capabilities on the CPCE.

Initiated in 2018 the CPCE is a single-mission command software suite designed to provide a common operational picture to ground commanders at the tactical level and above, according to an army fact sheet. Based on the SitaWare-powered core server hardware, the CPCE is capable of hosting “a comprehensive suite of software applications and services upon which warfighting functions can be converged and future applications can be built”, the fact sheet noted.

Rainmaker is a science and technology programme run out of the C5ISR directorate, focused on common data fabric integration and data transport among service sensors and platforms. Most recently, service leaders evaluated Rainmaker's advanced data transport capabilities between low Earth orbit (LEO) and medium Earth orbit (MEO) satellite capabilities, in support of the service's Integrated Tactical Network (ITN).
