Global Information Dominance Experiments (GIDE) use Starlink.
I went looking for how they are using Starlink and couldn’t find much, except this gibberish on an Air Force press release. I bolded the parts that might relate to Starlink:
In addition to these overarching objectives, the Chief Architect Office also conducted experiments of key enabling technology: (1) applying artificial intelligence to enable decision advantage through software at the strategic, operational and tactical level in partnership with the Joint AI Center, (2) augmenting Pacific Air Forces deployed communications teams with commercial-off-the-shelf networking technologies and commercial communications pathways to boost bandwidth, stabilize connectivity and increase network resiliency, (3) pushing the flexibility of commercial and government edge computing and store capabilities to help warfighters gain access to mission applications during distributed operations, (4) enabling mobile, disrupted and distributed operations at the classified level through the use of mobile devices as computing platforms to run classified applications over commercial satellite and terrestrial cellular networks, and (5) integrating the capabilities of automated data feed translation and threat track fusion in partnership with the Defense Advanced Research Programs Agency (DARPA) through STITCHES (System-of-systems Technology Integration Tool Chain for Heterogeneous Electronic Systems). ADE5 also initiated the transition of STITCHES from DARPA to the Department of the Air Force.
At the Air Force link above, click through the slideshow. The juxtaposition of the Starlink dish (slide 1) with the Cell On Light Truck (COLT) (slide 5) is very interesting. Maybe they’re looking at establishing fake or alternate mobile networks and using Starlink for backhaul.
Via: The Warzone:
U.S. Northern Command (NORTHCOM) recently conducted a series of tests known as the Global Information Dominance Experiments, or GIDE, which combined global sensor networks, artificial intelligence (AI) systems, and cloud computing resources in an attempt to “achieve information dominance” and “decision-making superiority.” According to NORTHCOM leadership, the AI and machine learning tools tested in the experiments could someday offer the Pentagon a robust “ability to see days in advance,” meaning it could predict the future with some reliability based on evaluating patterns, anomalies, and trends in massive data sets. While the concept sounds like something out of Minority Report, the commander of NORTHCOM says this capability is already enabled by tools readily available to the Pentagon.
