Blueforce is proud to announce that we have been named one of the “Top 10 Homeland Security Solution Providers” by CIOReview magazine.  In a world dominated by asymmetric threats, a split second’s delay in command decision can drive the success or failure of a mission. In such a scenario, ensuring that the right person at the right time receives actionable information is essential for mission success. Driven to empower homeland

Recent terrorist attacks and active shooter incidents have shared a common similarity: 100’s of armed responders from many agencies descending on the scene to help neutralize the situation. With that comes not only a radio interoperability problem, but a command interoperability problem.  Reaction time is critical during an asymmetric incident. Split second decisions are required and traditional methods of pushing decision data to higher echelons of command in an agency

When law enforcement responds to a scene, they face a large number of unknowns.  A scene that initially seems calm, can quickly escalate to one of extreme violence.  Those seconds where escalation begins can be of extreme importance to other responding units.  What has been missing, until now, is a connected solution that leverages telemetry data from firearms, combined with tactical edge information sharing, to respond to incidents quickly and

Blueforce specializes in Lone Worker safety, which we describe as a person who carries out work activities by themselves or in an area where there are no other people nearby to respond in a timely fashion should the worker become disabled or encounter a hostile situation.  By far, the largest hazard to Lone Workers is the risk of falling. While most falls are not life threatening, being knocked unconscious in

PoliceOne is THE authoritative source for Law Enforcement and their recent article proves it. Every officer, every soldier, is a Blueforce Sensing Platform.  It’s a common doctrinal goal for network-centric operations.  Today, we have specialized military and police dogs that are trained specifically for bomb detection, yet, a limited number of resourecs can only be deployed so far and so wide. We need bomb “noses” far and wide. When we fuse silicon based

Law enforcement officers need to stay connected and be able to access critical information quickly and easily. Microsoft, together with Blueforce, provides combined solutions that empower officers to better serve and protect, and still allow a choice of mobile devices and sensors that both fit the needs of the agency and officers. Mobile phones running Blueforce Tactical can be used to share and receive photos, videos, sensor data, and to

Blueforce was proud to take part in MEDWAR 2017 SOUTHEAST as a guest of VCOM/Auburn. Exposure to extreme heat is a reality of any form of public safety/military training and unit preparation for operational missions, MEDWAR included. Many heat illnesses are preventable, and none should be fatal. Leaders must assess unit’s missions and training requirements against the risk associated with operating in warm weather environments. Early recognition and treatment of

Thousands of workers fall victim to heat related injuries annually. Heat Stroke and Heat Exhaustion can occur quickly and early signs are often ignored as workers are focused on accomplishing their assigned tasks. These injuries can occur when work is being done outside and inside and are a major concern of EHS groups across a wide swath of industries. The fact is that heat related illness is very preventable.
