Modular Open Systems Architecture (MOSA) refers to an approach that promotes the design and implementation of systems using open standards and modular components. It emphasizes the use of well-defined interfaces and standards, allowing for the seamless integration and interchangeability of various subsystems and components. In the military and public safety context, MOSA offers significant value by enhancing interoperability, scalability, and affordability of strategic and tactical...

While "domain awareness" has been a long-standing requirement for military and counter-terrorism operations, Blueforce has been hearing this more and more for incident management in the public safety and emergency management spaces. Domain awareness is of paramount importance for emergency managers as it provides a comprehensive understanding of the operating environment in which emergencies or disasters occur. Here are several reasons why domain awareness is...

By Morgan Greene, GM National Security Markets, Blueforce Development Corporation We are often asked: What does Blueforce do in the Federal, National Defense, and Intelligence Community spaces? Are you guys the that blueforce tracker stuff? Dots on maps like TAK, right?!? Does it do this JADC2 stuff I’ve been hearing about? No, we have no relation or connection to your experience with blueforce tracker, although we...

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...

Unattended ground sensors from multiple manufacturers, fused and normalized for sensor cueing to minimize false positives and accelerate detection time Today's unattended ground sensors (UGS) consist of various sensor technologies that are tightly integrated to deploy and perform the given task such as target detection, location, and recognition. These ground sensors are generally small, robust, and can be considered "disposable" in many cases given their low...

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...

When an organization has IoT sensors, surveillance equipment, and even information technology gear deployed to far flung locations across the world, driving to a location to reset a router or a camera can take hours. Arcanum Africa, a Blueforce Platinum reseller based in South Africa, experiences these exact challenges with deployed security equipment as well as counter-poaching technologies designed to protect wildlife. What's needed is...

Crisis negotiation and de-escalation are law enforcement techniques used to communicate with people who are threatening violence (workplace violence, domestic violence, suicide, or terrorism) and can include barricaded subjects, stalkers, criminals attempting to escape after a botched robbery, and hostage-takers. While basic voice communications are of extreme value, understanding what is going on when the negotiator and subject are not on the phone enables better...

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...
