JIFX Continues to Help DOD, Academia Explore Limits of New Technology
Written by Matthew Schehl, September 28, 2018
JIFX 18-4 was held at the NPS Field Laboratory on McMillian Airfield, Camp Roberts, CA. Continuing our 15th year of field experimentation at NPS, this event, which focused on countering unmanned systems, hosted 12 total experiments with over 170 researchers and developers from over 40 unique organizations.
Students from three different programs at the Naval Postgraduate School attended the event to evaluate the Technology Readiness Levels of each experiment and provide assistance to the Joint Vulnerability Assessment Branch throughout the JIFX event. These students were from the Network Operations and Technology (NWOT), Cyber Systems and Operations (CSO), and Information Warfare Systems Engineering (ISWE) programs. We look forward to continuing the opportunity for NPS students to attend JIFX events in the near future.
Joint Interagency Field Experimentation (JIFX) 18-3 hosted 23 experiments at the Naval Postgraduate School’s Field Laboratory at McMillan Airfield, Camp Roberts. Over 280 researchers and developers from 85 unique government, private, and academic organization participate in this event, that included a focus on larger (group 2 & 3) unmanned air systems to provide persistent multi-purpose support to military, disaster response and humanitarian operations.
The event also expanded the emphasis on cyber security for emerging technologies with “good cyber hygiene” being emphasized in all experimentation efforts.
Commencing the 15th year of NPS Field Experimentation, JIFX 18-2 hosted 18 experiments from 26 February to 2 March, at Camp Roberts, the California National Guard’s premier Maneuver Training Center. The NPS field experimentation program conducts quarterly collaborative experimentation to help the Department of Defense, other government agencies, andstate and local governments incorporate emerging technology into their operations. Over 180 researchers and developers from 77 government, private, and academic organizations participated in this cycle, which was focused on the impact of unmanned and autonomous systems on wildfire fighting operations and support. Experiments ranged from information security in diverse and ad hoc networks, to three-dimensional visualizations of operating areas, and to the use of unmanned ground and air vehicles for precisely locating hazardous material. Planning has already begun for the next experimentation cycle. JIFX 18-3 will be held 4-8 June and will focus on the use of larger (group 2 & 3) unmanned air systems to provide persistent multi-purpose support to military, disaster response, and humanitarian operations.
