Blueforce customers live in a world where Command decisions drive mission success or mission failure, and where life and death is a function of actionable information getting to the right person at the right time. Most often, the perishability of tactical information is measured in minutes. A robustly networked operational environment coupled with the Internet of Things (IoT) is changing the game specific to real-time...Read More
Blueforce was proud to take part in MEDWAR 2017 SOUTHEAST as a guest of VCOM/Auburn. Exposure to extreme heat is a reality of any form of public safety/military training and unit preparation for operational missions, MEDWAR included.

Leaders must assess unit's missions and training requirements against the risk associated with operating in warm weather environments....Read More

This dynamic training event will give participants from the public safety, military, and private sector an opportunity to share some ideas and knowledge on best practices from a diverse group of instructors relative to the...Read More
Here at Blueforce, we think back just ten years ago and the state of personal computing at the time. We were fresh out of Iraq and post-9/11 and simple gamecam capabilities could run a DoD unit upwards of $80,000 a sensor. Military and emergency management groups alike have long been keen for sensors that can be left behind if need be. Ones that are inexpensive...Read More
Microsoft Band 2 is what one would expect from Microsoft. It is not a single faceted device that merely sends steps or heartbeats. It also has the ability to receive commands from third party applications via a well documented API, and of course, the Microsoft approach to "platform" shines through. Blueforce committed very quickly to building for this platform. The band can serve as a...Read More
