ARL continues IoBT research with LoRaWAN testing

Lauren Saccone reports for InCompliance that Army Research Labs (ARL) is examining how smart city technology can play a role in IoBT intelligence gathering and in communication with those in the field.  ARL is primarily concerned with urban environments with high levels of sensor data and communication technologies as they test the capabilities of IoBT work to discern and disseminate crucial information to soldiers on the ground.  To test these theories, the Army is testing Long Range Wide Area Networks (LoRaWan) as a way to enhance the ability to transmit and receive data in urban environments.  Further research into LoRaWAN could have far reaching consequences for modern warfare in urban environments.
