With the explosive growth mobile cloud service, emergency military tasks on the tactical edge gradually show the characteristics of regional dispersion, dynamic change, multi-point concurrency and marginalization. At the same time, military operations show the trend of migrating information-oriented, decision-making and control to the tactical edge. In order to solve the problems of military action under the situation of tactical edge network, limited equipment access, lack of edge of tactical maneuver and edge information fusion processing capacity, an efficient mobile cloud service model for tactical edge is put forward. The model can provide flexible tactical edge information exchange and information processing ability. Also, it is suitable to self-adaptive to the frontline battlefield environment on the aspects of collaborative perception, decision making, time delay and energy consumption demand.
