AWS: Advanced Technology Capabilities and Experimentation

AWS Technologies and capabilities

Amazon Web Services (AWS) brings together the scale of the internet to solve the most complex technical challenges. For example, the AWS Disaster Response team uses AWS capabilities and solutions to help organizations and communities prepare for and respond to disasters. The team recently helped with response efforts for the wildfires in Maui and hurricane Idalia in Florida. In collaboration with Operation BBQ Relief, they piloted a solution for tracking food with SMOKE that helped to more efficiently direct food during response operations.

Proven solutions. secure missions.

By working backwards with our customers, we’re able to help them apply new technologies and capabilities to their domains. Our exhibit at the Innovation and Tech Expo shows how we’re bringing cloud innovation to the edge for disaster response, machine learning (ML), sports, and the U.S. Department of Defense (DoD).

We’re giving customers in those fields access to the power of cloud everywhere through AWS artificial intelligence (AI) and ML solutions like Amazon SageMaker and Amazon Bedrock. SageMaker is a cloud ML platform that enables developers to create, train, and deploy ML models in the cloud and deploy to embedded systems and edge devices. Amazon Bedrock is AWS’s fully-managed service to bring generative AI and foundational models to complex problems. These advanced capabilities manage the entire lifecycle of a solution, including updated learnings on top of existing foundational models, keeping them up-to-date and able to keep pace with customer missions.

Amazon Web services innovation

Innovation is vital, but its impact is limited if it can’t be secured and scaled. By designing solutions with the AWS Well-Architected Framework, we are able to build reliable and secure solutions using highly repeatable infrastructure as code. This methodology applies to both cloud-based solutions with effectively unlimited scale and for computations at the edge using the AWS Snow Family, AWS IoT Greengrass, and AWS IoT Core for the smallest sensors. By combining this with secure and redundant networking, customers are able to gather and process data at scale, even in disrupted, disconnected, intermittent, and low-bandwidth (DDIL) environments.

One way AWS is helping the DoD achieve mission in DDIL environments is through its work with the Electric Tactical Humanitarian Operations Resource (eTHOR), an integrated, electric, semi-autonomous mobile power station built by DANNAR and coupled with high speed, low latency, high bandwidth 5G capabilities developed by AWS. eTHOR’s agility and traditional fuel independence, coupled with the ability to store, transport, and export power, support the dispersion and discretion of forces.

Come see the AWS Disaster Response team, AWS AI and ML solutions, eTHOR, and more at Miramar Air Show’s Innovation and Tech Expo located at Airport Hangar 3 at Marine Corps Air Station Miramar from September 22-24, with gates open from 8:00am-5:00pm.
