PoliceONE and Kyocera: Every Officer, every Soldier, a Blueforce Sensing Platform
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 sensors with horizontally deployed assets (like K9’s), we get force multiplier effects that are exponential in detection. Kyocera and Blueforce Development have deployments today that traverse human and K9 endpoints. Diffused sensors measure temperature, radiological, and chemical threats-combined, are matchbox sized, and, thanks to Bluetooth, have low energy draw functionality. Each endpoint shares data amongst far forward responders, but also with command.
The larger value proposition is in Kyocera’s certifications for HAZLOC, durability, and price. Not to mention the DuraForce PRO product line is available from many carriers.
