During the Spring of 2021, we supported The Digital Decision by donating and installed public safety technology solutions on the campus of Clark Atlanta University (CAU) to support their commencement ceremony held in mid-May. The technological solutions installed improved situational awareness as many events were being hosted on the campus. “With numerous activities going on all at one time, I wanted to be able to pinpoint...

Technology for smart buildings, retail, and intelligent entertainment districts deliver useful services that make experiences for occupants and shoppers more intimate, safe, and satisfying. Smart buildings use information technology during operation to connect a variety of subsystems, which typically operate independently, so that these systems can share information to optimize productivity and experience. Smart buildings look beyond the building equipment within their four walls. They...

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...

The origins of the Blueforce platform began with a singular and simple mission set: Enable warfighters and first responders to leverage their mobile compute devices to quickly form secure human workgroups in order to respond to a rapidly evolving incident. Blueforce delivered this in 2012 in the form of BlueforceTACTICAL for Android which enabled self-synchronization of location, shared ground intelligence, and the fusion and movement...

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...

Blueforce has been working diligently over the last six months on our new BlueforceTACTICAL and BlueforceEDGE ports to Linux. Much of our work has been in developing next generation Blueforce Plugins for the Linux platform that support and extend capability to shrink the footprint, but also the Space, Weight, and Power (SWaP) requirements such that the code can run on “System on Chip” containers, but...

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...

Blueforce's new EDGEbox for Linux will Ship With Recognitional Plugins Given the tempo of operations and the collapsed decision space presented by increasingly non-predictive threats, we continue to hear a common refrain: decision makers want nothing to do with a big data problem when on target, or at an incident site. The “Commander” is too often drowning in data, yet desires an explicit collision of “sense-making”...

Situational awareness is a critical component for Incident Commanders making life and death decisions in time constrained environments. As the internet has matured, and public safety IoT/sensors are deployed, the commander now has access to a wide array of data that transcends mere location and map markups. With this proliferation of public safety sensors, drones, robotics, and now smart city infrastructure, the commander has an ever...

Despite rapid advances in weapon-mounted digital optics, target acquisition through-the-optic, classification, and identification have changed very little. It comes down to the operator visually acquiring a target and assessing its friend/foe affiliation and threat potential. This “tried and true” methodology is vulnerable to several points of failure. The foremost vulnerability is reliance on the operator’s ability to classify and identify the target, which may appear...
