San Francisco, CA and Yuma Proving Ground, AZ / October 12, 2022 / Ditto, creators of next-generation software infrastructure, enabling apps to synchronize data in real-time without internet connectivity, today announced it has successfully demonstrated and validated its sync capabilities across multiple meshes of Android devices and network transports at Project Convergence 2022. The flagship, multi-event initiative encompasses a modernization, learning, experimentation, and demonstration campaign by the U.S. Army. It is attended by several thousand U.S., U.K., and Australian service members, researchers, and industry partners in order to experiment and assess emerging technologies at U.S. military installations across the Western U.S.

In September, at Project Convergence 2022 Gateway in Yuma Proving Ground, Arizona, Ditto tested and demonstrated, for US Army Evaluators, seamless, secure, real-time data sync from Android Team Awareness Kit (ATAK) devices across Bluetooth, external mesh radios, private LTE network, and a satellite link via an ATAK plugin. This real-world exercise proves Ditto's strength in providing redundancy and resiliency to critical military operations.

Real-time data sync across devices within a mesh, in conjunction with long-range sync between meshes, is an observable advantage for small tactical teams and operational awareness at all tiers when equipped as part of a warfighter's arsenal.

Following its successful September demonstration, Ditto will showcase their technology next week at PC22 Gateway Distinguished Visitor Day in Yuma on October 18th, and at the Project Convergence Capability Showcase in Camp Pendleton on October 20th.

Project Convergence 2022 will evaluate approximately 300 technologies, including long-range fires, unmanned aerial systems, autonomous fighting vehicles, and next-generation sensors. It will focus on advancing joint and multinational interoperability in future operational environments.

“We are excited to be a part of Project Convergence 2022 as we continue to demonstrate the tactical power of Ditto's technology,” said Adam Fish, co-founder, and CEO of Ditto. “There are ever-increasing use cases for real-time, seamless data sync–even without internet availability–whether it's within an enterprise or for the Department of Defense. We're looking forward to showcasing how Ditto can enable mission-critical operations resilient against interruption to ensure information dominance for the military.”

In March, Ditto announced it was awarded a $950 million indefinite-delivery/indefinite-quantity (IDIQ) contract to develop and power the U.S. Air Force's Advanced Battlefield Management System (ABMS). ABMS uses technology innovation to rapidly collect, analyze, and share information and make decisions in real-time, even in environments where there is no network connectivity, or the network has been jammed or degraded. ABMS is part of the Department of Defense's Joint All Domain Command and Control (JADC2) effort.

Ditto is a cross-platform peer-to-peer (P2P) database that allows apps to sync with and even without network connectivity. The Ditto Intelligent Edge Platform enables nearly any type of edge computing system to share data real-time in a mesh, and without a central server or hardware, processing information at the edge. This provides maximum flexibility to solve some of the toughest data communications challenges.

About Ditto

Ditto is a cross-platform, real-time database that allows mobile, web, IoT, and server apps to sync, even without internet connectivity. The Ditto Intelligent Edge Platform is a complete solution that features an SDK with a peer-to-peer (P2P) mesh network, embedded database, and is capable of automatic conflict resolution, as well as a cloud database that can handle extreme resiliency, automatic scalability for handling unpredictable loads, and seamless integration via APIs. Ditto automatically manages the complexity of using multiple network transports, such as Bluetooth, P2P Wi-Fi, and Local Area Network, to find and connect to other devices and then synchronize any and all changes. With Ditto, your app will continue to operate in offline situations, and data can be shared without latency, resiliency, or security issues. Founded in 2018 and headquartered in San Francisco, CA, Ditto has secured investments from True Ventures and Amity Ventures. For more information, visit https://www.ditto.live/.
