Convergence of recent advances in mobile high performance computing (HPC) and mobile ad hoc networks is termed as `tactical cloudlet'. A fully realized tactical cloudlet concept provides a unique capability for the military and this capability would be powerful not only in enabling highly mobile, highly responsive, and quickly deployable tactical forces but also enhancing soldiers' situational awareness through real-time on demand data analytics. However, significant technical and research challenges remain before this realization is viable. Addressing the technical challenges of tactical cloudlets in harsh military environments is a significant task that will require the invention and adoption of new technologies.
