Developing hybrid apps and cloud computing for mobile air-gapped environments

From the Tactical Edge to Winning the Battle in the Cloud

Info about event


Thursday 25 November 2021,  at 15:00 - 17:30


Systematic Tower - Søren Frichs Vej 39, 8000 Aarhus



Developing hybrid apps for mobile air-gapped environments

In Systematic Defence, we build world-leading Command and Control systems while balancing the need for new technologies versus restricted environments and legacy hardware.

In this talk, we will present some of the architectural decisions behind building our next generation mobile products. Products that lead the market on C2 capabilities include advanced geospatial analysis, 3D maps, and tactical communication while running as a native app on Android, Windows, and Linux in an air-gapped environment. The talk will go through how we use the latest web technologies, including Angular, TypeScript and an embedded webserver, to build a hybrid app that supports our customers' many legacy hardware configurations and deployment needs.


  • Hybrid cross-platform app development – Web, Android and Windows
  • Intelligence gathering in a distributed environment
  • Tactical communication on low bandwidth and high latency links on the tactical edge
  • Advanced geospatial analysis in a completely isolated and air-gapped environment

Cloud computing in air-gapped environments with limited resources

The SitaWare suite leverages cloud technology to form a Big Data Integration platform to enable decision support for the commander

In this talk, we will present some of the capabilities of our solution, of how to capture data from many different sources as a stream or in a Data Lake. The data is processed and transformed into various forms that can be used for analysis and hence decision support. The talk will go through how we are combining the latest cloud-native technologies, including Kubernetes, Istio, Kafka and Elasticsearch.


  • Big Data integration platform based on open-source products on top of Kubernetes and Istio
  • Support decision making based on big data and AI for Natural Language Processing, Object Detection and Anomaly detection
  • Getting data from the Edge in a decentralized environment and sharing re-trained models
  • The Event is being held physical in the systematic tower as well as online
  • Includes refreshments and networking for the physical event.
