The NavalX SoCal Tech Bridge along with its partners is helping to build the Digital Fortress; an interconnected and flexible network that will sees, relay, and interpret threats in any medium: land, sea, air, and space.
About the Digital Fortress
The building blocks of the SoCal Tech Bridge digital fortress are Counter-Intrusion and Biometric Authentication/Continuous Multi-Factor Authentication (CMFA) assets that can address multiple threat vectors and can provide - and interpret - real time intelligence.
Counter-Intrusion relies on compact, self-powered, learning surveillance tools. Currently operational assets aboard military bases include: Ground Sensor Suites; Maritime Surveillance Towers; Sentry Tower Platforms; Drones and Counter Drones; and Lattice AI Software Systems. Data is fused with AI computer vision, Machine Learning, and mesh networking, resulting in a powerful 365 degree view of potential and actual threats.
The practice of Biometric Authentication and CMFA relies upon Artificial Intelligence and Machine Learning to process a wide variety of biometric factors to include: facial recognition; gait; voice; peripherals; GPS; device orientation; and networks. These processes can be carried out in the moment, face-to-face, or from afar, resulting in instant positive and/or negative identification.
These capabilities, whether aboard bases/stations or in combat scenarios, can increase responsiveness and accuracy to limit the impact of intrusions and can reduce manpower and resources needed for potentially mundance or repetitive tasks.
