After Action Reports (AAR) may be one of the most important tools in emergency management and counter-terrorism operations. When used as a critical component of an agency's tactics, techniques, and procedures (TTP), AAR's can be an important litmus test which questions our assumptions about threats, which ultimately impacts training, mitigation, and response. Blueforce was used extensively over the entire Macys Thanksgiving Day parade route and...

Joint All-Domain Command & Control (JADC2) is the DoD initiative to replace the current domain and control systems with one that connects the existing sensors and shooters and distribute the available data to all domains (sea, air, land, cyber, and space) and forces that are part of the U.S. military. The goal is to move to a system that connects every sensor and shooter, providing...

SIX capabilities, powered by Blueforce’s edge IoT technology, that deliver immense capability to our National Security Operators and Organizations. Pervasive sensor technology presents the opportunity for operators to extend their capabilities, share information horizontally, and swarm faster than their adversaries, by communicating with devices that are installed at fixed locations, carried, mounted on manned and unmanned systems, or worn on the body, the latter of which...

Multi-variant sensing and cueing largely speaks to physical sensors interacting with each other (even sensors from disparate manufacturers) at high speeds to derive meaning and minimize “false positives”.  Adding privacy-assured artificial intelligence, in the form of cognitive services, provides additional precision for threat detection and mitigation. Recognitional support and stream analytics is an essential component of a multi-tiered approach to identify a security and/or safety...

The first 72 hours after a natural/manmade disaster are critical hours that make or break the speed of recovery. Power is gone. Terrestrial communications are denied if available at all. Worse, a nonpredictive inter-agency mash-up is about to hit and with it comes an interoperability nightmare. The ability to positively impact recovery requires communications and the rapid standup of mobile command in denied, disparate, and...

Complex emergency management is fundamentally a lesson in organized chaos where accountability is a core foundational element of shared situational awareness. Knowing where to find what you need can be as chaotic given that response assets — the vehicles, equipment, autonomous platforms — are rarely in one place and scattered throughout an area of operation. Asset inventory coupled with resources and capability on a "single...

For decades now, public safety Land Mobile Radio (LMR) systems have provided a reliable, albeit geographically limited, communications backbone and baseline for related command and control systems for public safety agencies. These legacy LMR systems are often limited to the geographic areas of the agency/agencies being served and, in many cases, there may be multiple public safety LMR systems in the same geographic area using...

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...
