Boeing launches MicroTAC tactical data analytic platform

Boeing has developed a new tactical data analytic suite – called MicroTAC – that the company says provides an information advantage to warfighters, even when network connectivity may be unavailable or unsuitable for the mission.

Running on a lightweight, battery-powered portable device similar to a laptop, MicroTAC can continuously accept data in the field and almost immediately provide an accurate picture of the unfolding information environment, according to Boeing.

While tactical data analysis requires an Internet connection, a MicroTAC user can accept new data, such as from a flash drive, search and analyze it and access predictive analytics while disconnected from networks.

“When warfighters bring MicroTAC into theater, they have a full suite of deployable analytic technologies at their fingertips to take in, analyze and disseminate information in near real-time, especially when communications are unreliable,” said Jeff Brown, director of Boeing’s Intelligence Systems Group.

MicroTAC is fully integrated with Boeing’s existing TAC software, which persistently monitors data and extracts relevant information in real time.
