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...

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...

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...

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...

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”...

Blueforce was founded with the idea that through our technology, we could have a positive impact on the world. Our products are created to enable organizations doing important things to keep their people safe and have the information that they need to make better informed and faster decisions to accomplish their missions and their goals. When we were approached by Tim Harry, owner of Severance...

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...
