Secure Data Fabric

Distributed Data Infrastructure for Warfighters

Secure Data Fabric integrates General Dynamics’ proven tactical data management and MLS Enterprise Cyber Security products and experience, creating a unified data environment for the formation’s echelons regardless of the source and security level of the data. Secure Data Fabric is a field-tested information service that allows units on the edge of the network to request, publish, and subscribe to information in a tactical network environment.

  • Hosted on current Army tactical network & hardware (TSI stack, edge devices, Android)
  • Deploys from Corps to Battalion and below
  • Supports Enterprise, Command Post, Mounted, and Soldier CE

Features

Our Secure Data Fabric (SDF) is:

Survivable: Data is stored and managed resiliently across Strategic, Operational, and Tactical echelons. Data is replicated across the architecture on demand for operational survivability and resiliency.

Disconnect, Intermittent, Latent Network-Tolerant: Every node remains mission capable across network disruptions. Disconnected LANs remain operational. Data edits and requests made while disconnected will be automatically satisfied when reconnected.

Bandwidth Efficient: Efficient publish/subscribe mechanism only sends delta change information and only for data that you have requested.

Open Standards-Based: REST, JSON, XML, WebSockets, GraphQL.

SDF provides standard PaaS infrastructure and interfaces that leverage both a trusted Operating System and Relational Database that provides MLS versions of productivity and collaboration tools. The MLS environment is approved for Protection Level 4 deployments. Leveraging the PaaS tools and services, customers can rapidly build and deploy C2 and other mission critical applications and data services securely. SDF based solutions are:

Unified: Data is shared and managed in a single information space to support applications that provide multi-domain mission and administration capabilities.

Agile: Design, development, deployment, and accreditation of new applications/capabilities is fast, low-risk, and affordable.

Secure: The system is safe/accreditable, accountable to the highest standards expected by warfighters.
