IOT INTEGRATION AND SECURITY
360 Degree Situational Awareness For Multiple Mission Support
Our Situational Awareness software platform enables law enforcement and other public safety personnel to monitor and track thousands of different devices from hundreds of manufacturers for an unlimited number of mission critical operations such as duty of care (officer tracking and safety), vehicle and aircraft tracking, asset verification (confidential informant management) covert and overt surveillance.
This can be accomplished using legacy devices already in inventory. Such devices include smart phones, GPS trackers, cameras, audio listening devices, etc. Once devices and personnel are enrolled in the system, all relevant data can easily be displayed in a single screen, shared across the enterprise, and/or sent to any individual that requires access with just an email address or telephone number.
The software has been deployed globally since 2013 for a number of critical law-enforcement, public safety, military and intelligence missions. Also, the software is commercial and can be used overseas without any export restrictions (exempt from ITAR).
Law enforcement can track the location and communicate securely (via text) with any of their officers – whether they are deployed within the United States or deployed overseas on assignment with foreign law-enforcement agencies.
Using their own mobile devices, any team can collect information (audio, video, imagery and location data) that can be shared securely or let their fellow officers know when they are in distress.
Not only can all of that information be displayed on a single screen, all of the devices can be managed remotely from the same environment. Watch commanders, situated at command centers, can reach into a phone remotely and have it capture a photo or record audio and securely stream it back to the command center. The information coming off remote devices is geo-tagged, time stamped and also hashed (SHA256) so it can be used for evidentiary purposes.
This means that the first officer on scene - if using a phone equipped with our technology – can become the eyes and ears for everybody else responding to the situation. This gives the added dimension of arriving on scene with situational awareness. The audio and video data coming from the on-scene officer can be shared and viewed on an almost unlimited number of phones almost immediately. The back end technology is the same as that used for Facebook Live – the difference being that data is encrypted, secured and only available to law-enforcement.
To further streamline the process, software can change languages with one button click to support operations in other countries. To work with non-English speaking informants, it can also be hidden under a cover app to provide an additional level of security. If for any reason, any phone with this software that is lost can be remotely disabled.
The platform easily supports cross echelon deconfiguration and joint task force work by sharing data and devices with other users for a specified period of time, giving them limited access based on their need to know – which reduces the possibility of blue on blue engagements.
Any team would have the ability to share access as needed with state, local and federal departments/agencies for specific operations for predetermined periods of time. At the conclusion of an operation, users and devices can be removed and/or returned back to their respective organizations with a simple mouse click.
