Tomahawk Hosts Microsoft Azure SDK on KxM Body-Worn Edge Processor

By Stefania Viscusi November 10, 2022

Tomahawk Robotics, a provider of common control solutions, has announced it successfully hosted Microsoft Azure SDK on its KxM edge device, a body-worn Kinesis Ecosystem extension to allow for processing and network management at the edge.

With the integration, Tomahawk Robotics' Kinesis common control software was able to track movement of users and connected unmanned systems (UxVs) to offer real-time telemetry data into the Azure Cloud.

"Hosting the Microsoft Azure SDK at the tactical edge is a perfect use case for KxM," said Matt Summer, CTO of Tomahawk Robotics. "KxM's edge compute power and advanced networking capabilities make it an ideal IoT connection device to provide both real-time and post mission data from unmanned systems and users to the Azure Cloud, as well as insights from the cloud back to those users and unmanned systems."

Microsoft Azure offers more than 200 cloud products and services that help users bring new solutions to life. Azure enables users to build, run, and manage applications across multiple clouds—on-premises or at the edge.

With this latest technology added to Microsoft Azure, Tomahawk Robotics said it hopes to offer even more benefit to its commercial and DoD end users. Its AI-enabled control system is used to help humans and unmanned systems work together for better safety and security.

Company officials said they plan to continue a deeper integration with Azure SDK and the KxM edge processor so it can do things like collect and distribute video data or enable distribution of AI/ML models from Azure to end users operating in austere environments at the tactical edge.
