Protective services encompass a diverse range of security measures aimed at safeguarding individuals, assets, and sensitive information. These services are tailored to the unique needs of each client, whether they are high-profile individuals, corporate executives, or public figures. Personal protective services, commonly known as bodyguards or executive protection agents, provide physical security by ensuring the safety of the client in various environments. They assess potential risks, plan secure transportation routes, and maintain vigilant surveillance to prevent any threats from materializing. These professionals are trained in defensive techniques, emergency response, and conflict resolution, enabling them to react swiftly and effectively to any potential danger or threat.

Protective services teams that must work mobile face a variety of challenges due to the dynamic and ever-evolving nature of the environment (physical and political). One major challenge for moving teams is ensuring the seamless coordination of logistics, communications, and coordination. As these teams need to travel frequently and often at short notice, arranging secure transportation, managing schedules, and maintaining effective communication channels can be complex, especially when dealing with different locations, time zones, the local environment, and potential emergencies.

Blueforce technologies are leveraged today across a wide swath of the protective services landscape. Our products are uniquely qualified for the entire mission set for our professional protective services professionals:

  • BlueforceBEACON: Originally built for the US Department of Defense, BlueforceBEACON extends well beyond the simple “red button” call for help. BlueforceBEACON enables covert and overt signaling when a protectee needs help. As well, BlueforceBEACON delivers ground truth intelligence around a protectee when they need help. This includes tracking, location services, encrypted messaging, signal intelligence, live streaming audio, and imagery auto-collection.
  • BlueforceTACTICAL: Our full featured mobile situational awareness product for security professionals allows tracking and monitoring of protectees while delivering geospatial planning tools, live streaming video, and an array of sensor plugins. It’s the single pane of glass for protective services professionals when they only want to carry an Android or iOS device.
  • BlueforceEDGE: “EDGE” provides a broad array of ‘lean services” to the security detail that includes geofencing of protectees, severe weather alerting, hyperlocal reporting of 911 and other public safety data, tactical radio services, map interoperability services, air and maritime domain awareness (track aircraft in near real-time), and public safety gateways when needed.

The crown jewel of the Blueforce product set is the BlueforceMOBILE Command Kit. The BlueforceMOBILE Command Kit is a fully self-contained kit that includes communications (e.g., WIFI bubble, 4G/LTE/5G backhaul, with support for satcom backhauls like Starlink, Inmarsat, and others), compute (local process to minimize the need for backhaul in contested environments), and professional antenna array powered by PARSEC antennas. The kit also includes the entire stack of Blueforce software products and our new Adaptive Incident Command software for professional command teams.

Protective services offer a comprehensive and multidimensional approach to security, combining physical, digital, and privacy safeguards to ensure the well-being and confidentiality of individuals and organizations.
