Vice President in Cloud and Edge Computing, ManTech
In 2022, Sandeep Shilawat built ManTech’s 5G/IoT Lab with enterprise and tactical cloud environments for experimentation of emerging technologies customers are eager to pursue.
The lab is a test bed for the implementation of various mission-critical use cases. For example, Shilawat’s team built a series of capabilities like Combat Cloud for the Internet of Battlefield Things. ManTech’s Combat Cloud provides awareness at the tactical edge and enables customers to make faster decisions for critical missions.
Throughout the year, Shilawat and his team remained heavily focused on bringing cloud capabilities to the customer as part of the company’s “Bringing Digital to Mission” strategy. This includes working on edge cloud, tactical cloud, distributed cloud and multidomain cloud solutions that deliver outstanding results for customers’ mission programs.
“Fundamental to everything I do is my motto: ‘Simplify IT.’ If it is not sufficient to merely understand IT ⏤ we must focus on making it simpler,” Shilawat said.
