Currently light infantry soldiers do not have access to many of their cyber resources the moment they depart the forward operating base (FOB). Commanders with recent combat experience have reported on the dearth of computing abilities once a mission is underway [14]. To address this, our group seeks to develop a tactical, mobile cloud implemented on a swarm of semi-autonomous robots. We provide two contributions with this work. First, provide a formal definition of the problem followed by a description of our approach to vulnerable state identification based on pattern recognition techniques. Second, we present an awareness definition as it pertains to our domain.
