The UK Ministry of Defence is investing in mobile apps for the Armed Forces. £30 million, taken from the military Transformation Fund established in 2018, will go towards supporting the development of agile applications which can adapt as missions evolve. The capability has been named PREDA: Platform for Rapid Exploitation of Digital Applications.
“From major natural disasters to the frontline on the battlefield, our Armed Forces are quick to react and even quicker to adapt,” commented Defence Secretary Gavin Williamson."This technology matches that agility by enabling the creation of specialist digital applications that are tailored, secure and responsive.
“By deploying this technology into the hands of our military, from sailors serving in the Caribbean, to pilots working in the Middle East, we will ensure we have a fighting force fit for the future, equipped with state-of-the-art technology at their fingertips.”
