IoT in the Defense Industry incorporates various tools and services that enable better management of the industry. These advanced technology applications enable military forces to operate at peak efficiency. IoT Applications such as Supply-Chain Management, Real-Time Fleet Management, Training & Simulation, Health Monitoring, Equipment Maintenance, Inventory Management, and Advanced Analytics benefit tremendously in improving mission effectiveness. Open Automation Software products are already in place for high speed real time and historical data capture with unparalleled reliability and security. The OAS platform can capture and move data for sensory inputs, provide data for predictive maintenance applications, and more.

Built for Modern Defense Systems

At Open Automation Software, we aim to improve the operations of a nation’s defense departments. Reliability is a hallmark of the OAS platform, a feature which is absolutely necessary in defense applications. For example, the store-and-forward capability of the OAS Data Historian ensures that no data will ever be lost when communications are interrupted by unreliable network connections in remote installations.

Defense applications are also often deployed over large geographic areas tracking large numbers of personnel and equipment resources, each with hundreds or even thousands of data points. The OAS platform’s flexibility to be connected between multiple locations on private or public networks allow for any solution topology to be employed.
