Digitization + IoT
The process of moving analog and manual processes online is nearly complete in most industries. The next step toward digitization is making sense of all of the new data being captured by Internet of Things (IoT). Iron Bow draws on decades of network experience to help clients evolve their systems to accept these new streams of data and turn them into actionable insight. The contextual awareness gained when assets can be tracked the same way as data files, holds incredible promise for more efficient and effective management and mission achievement.
Sensors and Data Collection – ensuring that sensors are deployed and managed in a way that the data can be acted on.
Smart Infrastructure – networks need to be upgraded to support the army of smart devices now connected to them. Use existing network to manage and monitor the devices that depend on it.
Asset Security – designing systems that follow tagged assets wherever they go ensuring full visibility into the status of critical tools and investments.
Data Correlation and Analytics – make data actionable. Normalize, correlate and present data in a way that it can be used to make informed decisions.
Supervisory Control and Data Acquisition (SCADA) – process control solutions to integrate with and provide analytics around SCADA.
Programmability (Orchestration + Automation) – using APIs ensure that IoT devices and newer solutions are being used to their full potential while fitting into existing workflows.
Iron Bow in Action
Building a Better Simulation
In today’s digitized world, training simulations are more accessible, accepted and realistic than ever. These simulations are critical to ensuring mission readiness while saving time and money. Data from field-deployed sensors can help build a contextual awareness for simulated training. With this real-world data, simulations can be more effectively programmed, removing the need to put expensive equipment at risk for training exercises.
Physical security relies on the digital network. Iron Bow has worked extensively to connect the physical and virtual environments across an array of clients. From switches that know when to turn the lights on and off based on occupancy to conference walls that fog out at the touch of a button for more privacy, we’ve been designing smart rooms for years. We ensure that critical assets are tracked, not only to provide whereabouts but also to inform users and administration of upcoming maintenance and updates.
We know the network and can connect new devices to it in a way that works for end users and administrators alike.
We look at digitization as network-enabling data and things. We’ll make the technology work for you and your systems.
Designing solutions around critical mission challenges means we’re using the latest technology in a way that is meaningful to day-to-day work.
