Powering Decision Advantage with IBM Defense Technology


Today’s Defense organizations are compelled to securely provide seamless sharing of data to ensure interoperability across systems, domains, and at the edge.

For Defense agencies to successfully adopt multi-domain command and control frameworks (joint all domain command and control), they must modernize software, data processes, data management, data architecture, while leveraging AI to bolster collaboration and achieve decision advantage.




With a deep understanding of your mission needs and use cases, you can design a data architecture to power decision advantage Learn about Data Fabric
Mission Planning

Defense Simulation Analystical Service (DSaS) is a real-time mission planning environment that expands the commander’s decision space with situational awareness and course of action analysis to improve trusted decision making across domains.

Quantum Safe

Quantum-safe encryption is key to addressing the quantum-based cybersecurity threats of the future. Defense organizations are well advised to get ahead of the quantum-safe encryption curve, starting with understanding what data might be at risk from future threats.

AI and Edge Autonomous

Act on insights closer to where data is created. How do you manage and promote security across thousands of edge servers and hundreds of thousands of edge devices cost-effectively? The answer: IBM Edge Application Manager.


Accelerating the modernization of applications for rapid cloud migration is an effective way in which Defense Agencies can implement digital transformation and address business imperatives. See how Red Hat’s open and flexible hybrid approach can help the DoD connect clouds, teams, and processes

Asset Maintenance

AI-based predictive maintenance solutions go beyond time-scheduled maintenance to condition-based action to predict the likelihood of future failures, improving asset reliability and enabling cost reduction.

Defense Transformation Consulting

Transformative solutions that enable government and defense agencies to modernize faster and enhance mission readiness and decision advantage.

Guardian Air Command and Control

UK’s Air Defence System is the command-and-control upgrades of GUARDIAN will continue improving the rapid exchange of real-time information and speed and accuracy of decision making. It also receives early warnings from NATO reporting centres to prepare the UK for incoming potential threats.

The U.S. Naval Research Laboratory (NRL)

Navy scientists and engineers have access to IBM’s advanced quantum computing systems and explore quantum technologies that are critical to the future battlespace.

Synthetic Environment Solutions

The Improbable-IBM+ Red Hat team is working to ensure Synthetic Environment Solutions, developed on and powered by Improbable’s Skyral platform, leverage IBM and Red Hat OpenShift Container Platform (OCP) and the investments the MOD has made in the Defence DevSecOps Service (D2S) to deliver complex Synthetic Environments faster than ever before. 

Edge computing For Defense with Red Hat

By computing data at the Edge Defense organizations can save time and money while better protecting citizens.

D2S is a Cloud Native Application Platform (CNAP) based on Red Hat OpenShift Container

Defence DevSecOps (D2S) with Red Hat OpenShift allows the UK MOD to move fast, deploy software efficiently, and operate at an unprecedented scale.
