Representatives from the Defense Information Systems Agency presented a roadmap on mobility technologies during TechNet Augusta 2019 that took place from Aug 19 to 23. DISA said Wednesday that its Defense Mobility Classified Capability-Secret program is working on mobile devices that would allow for access to classified information.

The program aims to launch the mobile devices within 12 months. U.S. Army Maj. Nikolaus Ziegler, innovation officer at DISA's Emerging Technologies Directorate, said the agency sees mobility as a way to determine identities and verify access in military environments. Mobile devices collect data different kinds of biometric data to determine a user's identity.

Carissa Landymore, program manager for cloud storage at DISA, presented about the MilDrive data platform that provides each team with up to one terabyte of cloud space. The service is available to individuals who possess either Department of Defense credentials or Non-classified Internet Protocol Router Network access.

“A mobile force demands access to data, and milDrive gives you that capability,” Landymore said.

Army Maj. Gen. Garrett Yee, assistant to the director at DISA, moderated the agency's panel during the event.
