The TIDE project is ACT's Think-tank for Information, Decision and Execution Superiority. TIDE supports our Program of Work in C4ISR technology and human factors. The first major event for TIDE in 2014 is the TIDE Sprint that will take place from 27-31 October 2014 at Virginia Beach Resorts and Conference Centre, Norfolk, USA. TIDE Sprints are sandbox events to discuss and rapidly solve C4ISR issues through a set of collaborative and educational think-tank sessions. TIDE Sprints use a combination of show-and-tell brainstorming, collaboration, education, demonstration, coding and testing to further select issues.
The TIDE Sprints bring together the members of the TIDE community, such as staff from ACT and NCIA as well as representatives from nations, academia and industry. All NATO Member Nations, Partnership for Peace (PfP) Nations and Contact Nations are invited to the TIDE Sprint in order to participate in the different tracks and working groups.
TIDE Sprint participants are a coalition of the willing or a grass root movement under the guidance of ACT but without a strong top-down infrastructure or complicated agreements. Participants are requested to share knowledge, designs, standards and codes with each other and strongly encouraged to enter collected information at TidePedia.
This TIDE Sprint will cover the following subjects in different tracks:
- Cyber Defence
- Federated Mission Networking
- Command and Control
- Social Media
