Military Intelligence

Apple technology-centric EchoStorm has been awarded a contract to participate in a U.S. Joint Forces Command Advanced Concept Technology Demonstration called Multisensor Aerospace-Ground Joint intelligence, surveillance and reconnaissance (ISR) Interoperability Coalition (MAJIIC) to explore new video intelligence delivery models. The company uses Apple's Xserve platform and QuickTime technology to help deliver video to frontline troops: "EchoStorm utilized a service-oriented architecture (SOA) to collect and distribute full-motion video (FMV) to Joint and Coalition forces. Using Apple Xserve G5, Xserve RAID, and QuickTime to deliver real-time video of combat surroundings, EchoStorm provided access to critical information that was previously unavailable."
