据c4isr网2020年7月31日报道

7月30日,美国防部首席信息官(CIO)达纳·迪西介绍了国防部正在推进的一系列IT计划的最新信息。

 重点介绍了几个正在开展的AI、大数据和云计算计划,并讨论了国防部“商用虚拟远程环境”计划

该计划旨在促进国防部近100万雇员居家联网协同工作。

云开发

国防部一直计划采购“联合体系国防基础设施”(JEDI)体系级云计划,强调该平台将打破数据孤岛并增强AI能力。但迪西强调JEDI并非国防部唯一的云计划。

去年,JEDI云项目授予微软,遭到亚马逊抵制。今年年初联邦法院评判国防部处理不公,中止该项目授予。国防部计划重新评估并于8月底重新宣布项目授权结果。

同时,国防部批准了空军的“一号平台”云项目,作为体系云服务平台替代项目,继续推进国防部相关业务开发。

AI 与“联合全域指挥控制”(JADC2)

国防部联合人工智能中心(JAIC)宣布将工作中心聚焦“联合全域指挥控制”,通过建立“联合共同基础”,JAIC具备了大规模开发人工智能设备的能力。为此,中心重点聚焦联合火力、电磁频谱和战略机动能力开发。

 JAIC正在开发一种认知助手,旨在向指挥官传送从大量战场信息中获取的相关数据,以加快决策支持,并向联合全域作战领域拓展。

迪西说:“JADC2由多领域组成,包括电池频谱、部队机动、目标瞄,以及如何获取信息流并促进人机互动,以提高决策效率”。

新任首席数据官

6月,国防部宣布,前特战司令部首席数据官戴维·什皮尔克任国防部新的首席数据官(CDO)。

迪西7月30日说,什皮尔克宣布,重点工作是“加强数据管理、互操作性和数据保护”,将对五角大楼、作战司令部指挥官、工业和学术界领导组织为期3个月的调研,广泛讨论,评估国防部综合进程,最后提出书面行动计划评估报告,并于8月发布国防部数据战略。

Pentagon CIO says the department’s cloud efforts are more than just JEDI

WASHINGTON — The Pentagon’s top IT official provided an update July 30 on a wide range of ongoing initiatives underway at the department as it continues to grapple with a remote workforce amid the coronavirus pandemic.

Chief Information Officer Dana Deasy highlighted several ongoing projects related to artificial intelligence, big data and cloud computing, while also discussing the department’s Commercial Virtual Remote Environment that’s allowed nearly 1 million Department of Defense employees to collaborate while working from home.

Here’s a roundup of what Deasy told reporters:

Cloud developments

The Defense Department has struggled for more than a year to procure its enterprisewide cloud, known as the Joint Enterprise Defense Infrastructure, a platform DoD leadership has continuously said will break down data silos and enhance artificial intelligence capabilities. But, as Deasy has stated repeatedly, JEDI is not going to be the DoD’s only cloud.

“Cloud has always been much more than JEDI,” Deasy said.

Work on the JEDI cloud, which was awarded to Microsoft in October last year and subsequently protested by Amazon Web Services, is on hold after a federal judge issued an injunction earlier this year upon determining it was likely the DoD erred in its evaluations of the two tech companies’ proposals.

The DoD is taking corrective action on the award, with Deasy saying the department intends to re-announce the winner “probably sometimes towards the very end of August, barring any last minute, unforeseen additional issues that are raised.”

In the meantime, the DoD has stamped the Air Force’s Platform One cloud offering as an enterprise service, giving DoD components a certified place to go for DevSecOps, Deasy said.

“What the big message there was, we actually for the first time had designated a cloud across DoD that could be used for a common way of doing DevSecOps,” he said.

AI and JADC2

The Joint Artificial Intelligence Center is pivoting to focus on Joint All-Domain Command and Control, a Pentagon-led effort to connect sensors and shooters. Through its Joint Common Foundation, Deasy said, the JAIC has tools and capabilities to develop AI capabilities at scale.

“That has now allowed us as we’ve matured to say: ‘What we’ve always known we really need to … get JAIC focused on is the joint all-domain space,‘ ” Deasy said, adding that the center is looking at joint fires, the electromagnetic spectrum and strategic mobility.

The JAIC, he said, is working on a cognitive assistant to deliver commanders relevant data from the hoards of information that come from the battlefield to quicken decision-making. But he added that the JAIC will expand into other areas of joint all-domain operations.

“JADC2 is made up of a bunch of different areas … including electromagnetic spectrum, how do we move forces, how do we target,” Deasy said. “But right now it’s all about how do you take streams of information and allow the machine and human to interact together to make better decisions.”

The new chief data officer

In June, the DoD announced that former Special Operations Command chief data officer Dave Spirk would become the DoD’s new CDO.

Deasy told reporters July 30 that Spirk will focus on “strengthening data governance, interoperability, and data protection across the department,” which he went on to describe as a “major effort.”

“The chief data officer is on a directed, 90-day listening tour where he is talking to senior leaders in the Pentagon, war fighters and at the combatant commands, industry and academia to assess the overall department’s progress,” Deasy said. “At the conclusion of the 90-day tour, Dave will provide a written assessment with a plan of action.”

Deasy added that a DoD data strategy will be released “in the coming months.”
