"Mobile computing" describes the use of computing technology on the go, through devices such as smartphones, tablets, portable computers, and wearable computers and sensors. The SEI is focusing on pervasive mobile computing at the tactical edge—environments in which front-line soldiers and first responders operate.
The SEI is working to realize this vision for soldiers and first responders:
The SEI explores the architecture and implementation of mobile systems that increase the flexibility of edge users to respond to diverse missions. In these systems, "pervasive computing"—the use of devices embedded with chips that can connect to a network—plays a major role.

Spotlight on Pervasive Mobile Computing
This technical note presents a strategy to overcome the challenges of obtaining sufficient computation power to run applications needed for warfighting and disaster relief missions. It discusses the use of cloudlets-- localized, stateless servers running one or more virtual machines--on...
