'Cross platform' and 'manage memory usage and disk access at a very granular level' do not readily go together. And not in Java either. Abstract your 'granular access' away in a C (I said 'C', not 'C++') library of your own. Use a lot of #ifdefs. On top of that, build in whatever you want.

"just make your troops leave their personal devices at home."

The impression I get is that it is exactly this that all armed forces all over the world are struggling with. A lot. Apparently, you can order a youngster these days to do a lot. But not that they leave their phone at home. Also, bear in mind that when soldiers get to take their own phones, then armies don't have to buy expensive welfare network capabilities.

We were so poor that we thought new clothes meant someone had died.
