The relationship between weather and emergency management (not to mention emergency preparedness) is fundamental and can be quite complicated. Weather causes many of the disasters that require an emergency response, yet awareness of conditions is essential for management of incidents unrelated to weather as the cause. For sure, meteorological awareness can have a profound effect managing the extent of destruction to life and property to...

The last 18 months have yielded unprecedented disruption to businesses, with retailers in particular experiencing a vastly changed consumer buying environment. Consumers have become quite comfortable with buying online, requiring retailers to now reimagine the customer experience. Experiences that focus on building "relationship" which is now as important as "transaction". Critical to becoming customer-obsessed and reigniting growth, is technology and data which fuel intelligent outcomes...

Ask any soldier or first responder and they will tell you of the importance of shared tactical video for decision-making during edge operations. Drones can now be cued to launch in real-time for overwatch. Military working dogs routinely carry low light infrared imagers that enable off-leash shared awareness for what the dog sees even though he is 200 meters forward. Video is core to intelligence...

Much like military conflict, manmade and natural disasters present similar challenges of uncertainty, complexity and variability. These time-constrained and chaotic decision environments require rapid adaptation and an ability to pivot quickly to changes in the environment. The complexity of the event, coupled with time compressed decision space and the severity of the potential consequences, creates conditions that are unforgiving of error. Given the austere and...

Mosaic system tenants that relate to time constrained decision environments increase survivability while enabling rapid adaptation for the good guys, and creating complexity and uncertainty for the adversary through the rapid composition and recomposition of disaggregated IoT sensors and AI swarms.   A mosaic approach treats threat as a "complex adaptive system" and leverages low-cost manned and unmanned swarming formations, flexibly networked and rapidly configured to...

It's hard to believe that the first recorded organized method of public lighting was deployed in 1417 by the Mayor of London, Sir Henry Barton. Residents were ordered to hang a lantern outside of their homes at nightfall. Even then, urban lighting was installed as a public safety measure, allowing residents to leverage illumination to avoid being attacked or mugged. Baltimore was the first city...

The central thesis for the Blueforce IoT and shared situational awareness software platform began to form in 2008 after a meeting with a US DoD special operations commander who described a problem he was experiencing; one that we had heard several years prior during the early days of Operation Iraqi Freedom (OIF). This special operations group deployed with 18 or more body-worn or person carried...

Blueforce helps cut through the onslaught of perishable edge IoT data by enabling collections of human, silicon, and AI endpoints that interact with the physical world with sense-making across the collective. Our new BlueforceLINUX IoT fusion platform was built to enable swarm intelligence in a soldier worn form factor and is optimized for CUBIC/DTECH's full line of tactical edge compute form factors, and screams on...
