The Israel Defense Forces (IDF) is developing its own military cloud computing networks, which will be up and running by the end of the year, according to Their senior Army sources.

The networks, being developed by the C4i Corps, will allow commanders in any particular combat arena to log in to the network and receive real-time intelligence on the location of enemy targets, as well as streaming information on the position of friendly forces, which can be instructed to assist in strikes. C4i signifies command, control, communications, computers, and (military) intelligence.

This is the technology that enables decisions to be taken,” the source said.
