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...

With mass shootings on the rise in the United States, efforts to better understand, prevent and deter active shooter incidents are becoming the norm. There is now a heavy focus on helping organizations, agencies, and schools to implement change to prevent loss of life and decrease response time. Although every active shooter scenario varies, there is a similar pattern: the attacker gains access to a...

The Internet of Things (IoT), by definition, is a wide array of "things" that can connect and exchange data over a network. This "network" can take many forms to include the "big" internet, an enterprise network, and in most places where we work, a closed network "bubble". The reality is that once many organizations begin to leverage "sensing", it becomes clear very quickly that exchanging...

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...

Digital Workflows triggering Emergency Instructions via Samsung MagicINFO-enabled Displays and Axis Public Address Speakers Every day, our physical and digital worlds become increasingly intertwined, presenting opportunity for investments in a future of continuous and lasting change. This is true of Smart Cities, but also Safe Schools and Smart Campuses. This digitalization of the cyber-physical world is especially promising for schools to realize opportunities and overcome challenges...

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...

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...

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...
