Objectivity, Inc. Receives Awards for Contribution to Military Efforts

Company recognized for enabling advanced military, battlefield and intelligence decision-support systems

Objectivity, Inc., supplier of data technologies used in some the most advanced military C2/C4ISR (command, control, intelligence, surveillance and reconnaissance) data fusion, analytics and metadata systems, on Monday announced the company was recently the recipient of two awards related to its efforts.

Objectivity's flagship product, Objectivity/DB, serves as a real-time, distributed and highly scalable data fusion repository, used in systems that monitor, analyze and respond to threats, and uniquely satisfying the real time data management requirements for network centric operations and warfare (NCO/NCW).

On Tuesday, January 25, 2011, Objectivity, Inc. was presented with the NCW 2011 Award for "Outstanding Contribution to the Development of Network Centric Operations", by the The Institute for Defense & Government Advancement (IDGA), during the NCW 2011 10th annual network centric warfare training conference and exposition.

IDGA's NCW Awards have been established to honor, recognize, and promote initiatives in the US Department of Defense, Coalition Governments, and Defense Industry that exemplify the principles of network-centric operations and support information age transformation. IDGA enlists a distinguished panel of defense sector leaders to evaluate the network-centric innovations that support our military operations. According to IDGA, winners exemplify the best in current initiatives and set new standards of excellence for incorporating this transformational concept into future work for the Department of Defense and its partners.

Previously, in November 2010, one of Objectivity, Inc.'s customers, Northrop Grumman, received the GSN (Government Security News) 2010 Homeland Security Award for "Best Data Fusion and Collaborative Analysis System" for Northrop's Analayst Support Architecture (ASA) program. The ASA program has been publicly acknowledged for its role in supporting the U.S. Air Force, the National Air and Space Intelligence Center (NASIC) Operational Watch Center and the Electronic Systems Center (ESC) at Hanscom Air Force Base in Massachusetts, among others, in providing decision support and actionable intelligence in mission critical operations.

The Government Security News (GSN) Homeland Security Awards salute government officials, agencies and integrators who have created cost-effective and efficient programs in support of defense and national security, along with vendors of software and physical products whose innovative technologies help protect nations from all types of threats.

When talking IoT we often focus on the devices, the sensors, the hardware itself. The new smart appliances, the new smart or self-driving cars (which are amalgamations of many ‘things'). When we are looking at the world of IoT, we should take a step back, look at the big picture. What value are these devices providing. IoT is not about the devices, its about the data consumed and generated. The devices are tools, mechanisms, conduits. This paper discusses the considerations when dealing with the...
