Securboration has been awarded a contract by the Office of the Secretary of Defense (OSD) for researching and defining operating system mechanisms to efficiently partition, communicate, and execute programs on many-core systems. Thermal constraints have led manufacturers to increase the number of computing cores instead of increasing clock speed. This contract aims to focus on allowing efficient operation of many programs which can be easily maintainable, adapatable, and usable by administrators with minimal training as number of processors, memory, and available communications bandwidth change.
Securboration has been selected by the Office of the Secretary of Defense to develop handheld Applications for Rapid Epidemiological Analysis (AREA). AREA will support the United States Military as it continues to expand its efforts into non-kinetic operations that emphasize Stabilization, Security, Transition, and Reconstruction Operations (SSTRO) and Humanitarian Aid / Disaster Relief Operations. To support the applications development, Securboration has assembled a team of experts from the medical community that includes professionals who have participated in disaster response missions; experts in infectious diseases, bio-terrorism, epidemics and pandemics; and authorities with detailed knowledge of the Military Health System. These experts will guide application development that is based on Securboration’s suite of content analysis products. The resulting AREA product will be handheld device applications that can provide simple, easy to use health surveillance, epidemiological analysis and forecasting capabilities.
