Wenzel talks about how one can take a systems approach that will allow for minimizing expense and maximizing flexibility.  He details his experience with military systems that generate data in a “stovepipe” method.  Also, he mentions the tremendous amount of data that can be generated with sensors.  All this has be combined in a secure manner.
