Adapting Critical Operations, Providing Federated Edge AI to the Ground System Operations


$100 USD each or $250 USD for All-Access Pass (includes all Tutorials and Working Groups)


Thursday – March 4, 2021


11:00 A.M. – 12:50 P.M. (PT)


How to utilize a common data cloud native platform, to include Kubernetes orchestrated containers, and a data fabric that implements a global namespace for data sharing and collaboration.  We will discuss architectures that solve challenges such as:

  • Operations in a D-DIL environment
  • The ability to work autonomously and in a federated mode
  • The ability to integrate with existing data sources

In addition to the software layer, we will dive into different hardware architectures to include workload and SWaP-optimized environments.  These environment, whether they are architected for austere environments, a traditional data center, or an HPC environment, allow you to provide a full data pipeline to orchestrate the complete solution from edge to core.


  • Problems that exist today
  • Use Cases
  • Reference Architectures
  • The Container Platform
  • The Data Fabric
  • The Infrastructure
  • What about Security and Secure Supply Chain
  • Conclusion

Description of Intended Students and Prerequisites


What can Attendees Expect to Learn

Attendees can expect to learn the need for an increase in performance, lowering of latency and shortening the data collection to decision process are key requirements of Ground System Architectures.  Come learn architectures and designs on how to extend capabilities from the core to the edge and providing AI Operations, in a D-DIL environment.
