Blueforce Named to Top 10 Homeland Security Solution Providers by CIO Review magazine

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 security and public safety teams with enhanced situational awareness, Blueforce Development is setting a new paradigm in real-time awareness through a software platform that facilitates tactical decision support leveraging commercially available computing hardware including Android and iOS mobile devices, and the intelligent cloud.

At the core, the Blueforce software stack is composed of a proprietary and patented decentralized fusion engine (DFE) and an open architecture sensor messaging fabric (SMF). The DFE interfaces with sensors, services, and external applications using BTAC or Blueforce EDGE as a software IoT gateway to share information. The SMF provides robust messaging capabilities to achieve speed of swarm and agile tactical extensibility. “We are bringing secure IoT capabilities to the tactical edge to enable homeland security and public safety shared situational awareness,” says Gellman.

Going forward, Blueforce Development is excited to leverage the FirstNet network. FirstNet is an independent authority within the U.S. Department of Commerce, authorized to develop and operate the nationwide, broadband network that equips first responders. With the creation of the FirstNet network, the use of smartphones and mobile applications will become prevalent in homeland security and law enforcement. “We are potentially the first software company with a full-stack solution for edge based sensor fusion and situational awareness and in the days to come we see our solutions being adopted broadly throughout homeland security and public safety organizations, for enhanced mission success and life-safety,” ends Gellman.
