Your Tax Dollars at Work

Army’s $2.7 billion cloud computing system does not work | The Raw Story: "Designed by Northrop Grumman to relay real-time intelligence to commanders from multiple sources; the system known as DCGS-A is meant to enable a battlefield officer to search for an insurgent by collecting and relaying data from multiple sources.

Instead, analysts say the system is unable to perform 'simple analytical tasks,' has trouble finding reports, and the mapping software is incompatible with the search software."
