Battlefield, disaster response, and public safety sustainment is both an art and science; it’s about synchronizing, integrating, and transporting commodities in a highly “just-in-time” manner to provide maneuver and incident commanders with freedom of action, extended operational reach, and prolonged endurance. As it turns out, the “science” of sustainment is not terribly difficult as it is grounded in basic math and computation, based on real-time...

The intelligence community has been warning for some time about “home made” explosive and chemical weapons, many of which can be fashioned from materials bought at Home Depot or the local pool supply store. Fast forward to Saturday March 14, 2015 when leaders in the semi-autonomous Kurdish region in Iraq provided the Reuters news organization with soil and clothing samples taken by the peshmerga from...

While cloud-based analytics and AI services can provide high-value recognitional services across imagery and data, too often data communications back to the cloud are jittery and quite often denied due to the crush of requests related to the incident, hampering access. Moving recognitional and computation services to the edge ensures access, but also delivers an ultra-low latency solution in time constrained environments. BlueforceEDGE is our autonomous...

Our nation’s stadiums, arenas, and concert venues host millions of people each year for special events. The majority of these venues will not contend with an extreme emergency during any given year. However, as we have seen in Las Vegas and more recently in Houston, consequences of extreme activity at these events, whether caused by human violence, natural disaster or another factor can be devastating...

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...
