Internet-of-things (IoT) devices have led to ubiquitous, remote and autonomous computing at the edge of the networks. These devices offload sensing, actuation and processing tasks away from the core of the network. The concept of Smart Cities tries to leverage Edge Computing based on IoT technologies for remote and distributed computing. Sieve, Process and Forward (SPF) is a Value-of-Information (VoI) based Fog as a Service (FaaS) solution for dynamic IoT applications in Smart City scenarios.

A recent NATO IST 147 RTG demonstration proved the validity of SPF, but also highlighted the need of extending the current architecture to support specific use-case scenarios for HADR systems. This paper tries to propose a generic architecture based on SPF to enable interoperability between military C2 (Command and Control) and core computing systems to support future HADR operations in Smart City environments.
