Application of IoT in military operations in a smart city
This paper addresses a scenario where a medium sized smart city in an Alliance nation has been struck by disaster. A small, multi-national force is deployed for disaster relief. Situational awareness (SA) is important so that resources, including personnel and supplies, may be prioritized to have the most impact and help those in the most need. This SA can be significantly enhanced via information obtained from Internet of Things (IoT) devices, especially in a smart city environment. This paper, which presents work performed by the NATO IST-147 ""Military Applications of Internet of Things"" group, explores the potential to exploit smart city IoT capabilities in military operations.
