Big over Narrow:

Meaningful Big data over unreliable networks

Applications that use effective analytics and visualisation of Big Data are increasingly having a profound impact on businesses and customers across the world.  They provide valuable and timely insights that allow us to make better and faster decisions, which can have a direct impact on businesses and even our daily lives. Typically, these applications are enabled by robust, high bandwidth and easily accessible data network connections.

Use of analytics and effective visualisation of data are valuable in the Tactical Communications world. However, the network bandwidth is scarce in these environments and is often subject to drop-outs. There is an opportunity to develop a smarter application that can efficiently obtain structured and unstructured data from multiple locations in a targeted manner, without having access to over 10MB/s network rates and display exactly the information required.
