Microsoft is hewing ever closer into becoming part of the military-industrial complex with their latest project, the Microsoft Tactical Vehicle.

The company showed off the modified SUV at Dahlgren Innovation Day in early November and impressed the attendees with the potential of the technology.

The Dahlgren Innovation Day briefers focused on how the cloud, AI, machine learning (ML), and cognitive services could impact the battlespace.

The Microsoft Tactical Vehicle is packed with sensors and onboard computing and is basically a data center on wheels with integration with Microsoft’s Azure Cloud services, and in this demonstration featured augmented and virtual reality for advanced mission planning to support the future Navy and tomorrow’s warfighters.

“The Navy and Microsoft briefs and demonstrations at Dahlgren Innovation Day enabled NSWC scientists and engineers to see and understand new technologies and tools available for engineering systems to meet mission requirements,” said Glenn Jones, Activity Command Information officer at NSWCDD.

“We were briefed on simple image recognition all the way to complex scenarios where multi-modal inputs led to actionable results from complex data sets,” said  Laura Martin, program manager for the Information Technology Hyper-Convergence – Hybrid Cloud Team at Naval Surface Warfare Center (NSWC) Dahlgren Division, regarding technologies demonstrated by the MTV spanning cloud solutions from the home front to the tactical edge.

Navy Warfare Centers consider the cloud as a key enabler for emerging technologies, such as AI, while building applications in the future, providing the Navy Warfare Centers with creative, adaptable, and intelligent capabilities.

The US Military has shown us their vision of an integrated battlefield using Tactical Augmented Reality. Microsoft has since won a contract to develop Visual Augmentation System, the so-called HoloLens for Military and has also won the $10 Pentagon JEDI contract.

While some have expressed discomfort with the increased use of Microsoft’s civilian technology for military applications, Microsoft CEO Satya Nadella has said as an American company he saw it as his duty to provide the military with the best technology Microsoft has to offer.
