BANDIT

Information management systems, including those falling under the publish/subscribe paradigm, are typically oriented around a centralized node or nodes that provide the desired capability. In the domain of tactical information exchange the operational tempo, burden of extra hardware, and an increased risk of loss of any single asset can lead to scenarios where non-centralized configurations are desirable. On the BANDIT (Bridging Across Network Domains Information Technology) project BBN is working with Harris to provide a Peer-to-Peer (P2P) oriented information management system that can be deployed on a heterogeneous mix of Android phones, tablets, and standard Windows/Linux/Mac laptops and workstations. BANDIT is researching and developing P2P capabilities for tactical information exchange.
