MITRE-ATARC Mobile Collaboration Symposium

The MITRE-ATARC Mobile Collaboration Symposium features discussion and white-boarding between government and industry subject matter experts in a small-group setting. The outcomes of these sessions will be compiled in a White Paper with recommendations to the government.


1. Mobile Security
Whether it is the device, the data, the application or all of the above, government agencies must secure an increasing number of mobile components. In addition, challenges must be resolved in the Trusted Execution Environment relating to Identity, Credential and Access Management. This session will examine the ever-expanding mobile ecosystem relating to security, identity and trusted access.

Industry Lead

Bill Edwards, former Integrated Project Team Lead, U.S. Navy/Principal, Deep Blue Krypto

Industry Lead

Pattabhi Nunna, Enterprise Mobile Practice Leader, Booz Allen Hamilton

Industry Lead

Michael Schell, Technical Director, OKL4 Hypervisor Technology, General Dynamics Mission Systems


Chris Brown, Lead Cyber Security Engineer, MITRE

2. Network of Things/Internet of Things
As IoT growth continues, and IoT devices and concepts are used in mission and business critical use cases, the security of these devices will become more and more important. Industry and Government face significant challenges in this emerging market. This session will identify key security challenges with using IoT devices, and begin to outline a framework for assessing the security of IoT devices.

3. Next Generation Mobile Solutions
Mobility and complementary technologies, such as augmented/virtual reality and wearables, are already popular in the consumer market. Government agencies are seeing an increase in demand from their users’ to include these, and other emerging tech, as part of their mobile offerings. This session will bring in industry and academia to update a technology forecast and roadmap for agencies to use in their near and long term investment planning.

4. Tactical and Field Deployments
Mobile technology is sought after by military, first responders, field agents and other user groups that need to operate in tactical and field environments. These environments pose unique challenges, such as low bandwidth, and limited or non existent connectivity back to the enterprise. Solution providers must design these systems to meet these unique needs. An emerging challenge agencies are facing is how to enable interoperability with tactical and field mobility deployments across government agencies, U.S., and international partners during disaster relief and military operations. This session will outline current and emerging tactical and field mobile solutions, and create a series of recommendations and best practices to improve their interoperability.

5. Mobile Health
Hosted by the DoD/VA Interagency Program Office (DoD/VA IPO), this session will focus on how mobile devices and shared analytics can improve health outcomes. With the use of mobile devices (smartphones, sensors, IoT devices, etc.) and associate applications, our workforce can conduct predictive analytics for early detection and mediation of emerging hazards, public health threats, and to promote community well-being and resilience. During this session, we will discuss and identify challenges and potential solutions related to mobile analytics in the following areas:

  • Next Generation supply chain: RFID tags to track medical and surgical supplies
  • Collection of patient’s health data via monitoring to prescribe appropriate medication
  • Conduct clinical trials on innovative medication and tracking it’s progress
  • Mobile health care payment solutions
  • Conduct trend analysis by capturing real-time alerts of biometric data frequently produced by wearable devices includes those pertaining to weight, temperature, cardiac care, calories, physical activity, and more
  • Emerging “virtual registries” of next generation software predictive advanced medical analytics for in patient, out-patient, and telehealth
