(RepublicanReport.com) – The American military has been the envy of the world for generations. When you’re the leader of the free world, you need armed forces capable of protecting your interests from those who would seek to interfere with them.
This means the United States’ military is constantly investing in new tools and technologies. The Joint Enterprise Defense Infrastructure (JEDI) is one example and it will be one of the most cutting-edge military systems in existence when it’s complete.
Essentially, JEDI is a cloud framework that will manage many of our military systems. Microsoft secured the contract (which was worth $10 billion) to develop it in 2019, beating competition from Amazon.
Once complete, JEDI will integrate all military software systems. Currently, the military has hundreds of separate service providers for software, a situation that is inefficient and disorganized. The JEDI system will track spending more closely and transparently and offer many competitive advantages to warfighters in combat.
Innovations like JEDI might seem costly, and perhaps, to some, unnecessary. Quite simply, however, they’re crucial if we are to remain protected from foreign aggressors.
