The Problem We Solve

  • Bridges communications on an ad hoc, secure basis — overcoming the necessary silos of private systems
  • Enables secure, ad hoc sharing from any communications platform — including real-time video, sensor and other systems
  • Enables real-time file transfer and chat between private silos
  • Closes interoperability gaps within, between and among agencies, including FEMA
