Michael HelfrichFounder & CEO at Blueforce Development
All-Channel Access & Total Awareness
Police and public safety organizations are working every day to manage extremist threats and violent crimes. Mobile technology is now one of the most important tools available to support information sharing, intelligence analysis, and inter-agency shared situational awareness. Blueforce products and services were designed and built to mitigate the splintered nature of intelligence gathering and analysis and break down the barriers to information sharing amongst responder agencies.
Our decentralized and mobile software solutions enable the rapid formation of tactical teams using their smartphones, provides location services and collaboration capabilities, and exposes an extensibility layer that fuses disparate sensors from different manufacturers and makes this data securely sharable amongst the deployed team, but also to distributed command and control. A single deployed responder can now share SCBA data, environmental data (i.e., CO, VOC, etc), WMD (i.e., radiological, chemical, etc), and biotelemetry (i.e., heartrate, respiration, etc) using a single Android or iOS device as the “gateway” between peer responders and incident command. This multi-sensor fusion capability means a single stream of data from a single responder, allowing life safety officers and incident commanders to view an entire deployed force on a single pane of glass view.

Turning Plans Into Actions
► Operationalize Your Plans – Take your runbooks, playbooks, procedures and plans off the shelf and put them onto your iPhone or Android devices. Access them anytime from the web, too. Don’t just PDF that thick plan; transform it without lost detail into a sleek, step-by-step action plan. Lower your training requirements and increase your response efficiency: make your team ready to respond wherever they are, whenever you need.
► Generate New Procedures in a Hurry – Groupdolists Subscription Libraries are less pain for more gain. Use them to access nearly 200 response procedures across more than a dozen themed libraries—and easily customize procedures to make them your own. Groupdolists procedures have been written by professionals, for professionals. Be better prepared. Be more prepared. Be prepared sooner.
► Defragment Your Response – You really can centralize your response, distribute your team, and increase your efficiency, all at the same time. Say goodbye to text-messaged tasks and say hello to real-time Groupdolists. Say goodbye to untracked waves of emails: memorialize all your key incident information in GroupTrack. Forget about all those scattered phone calls, too, which are forgotten after the fact. Say hello to GroupTalk, instead: one tap to talk, from anywhere around the globe, and every call is safely documented.
Using Groupdolists is easier and more efficient than responding worse with all those uncoordinated communications it replaces.
Michael has been building tools for the emergency and incident management markets since 2001, when he co-founded Send Word Now in New York City immediately following the incidents of 9/11. Michael founded Centrallo, which powers Groupdolists in 2013 to help the teams responsible for the safety and security of people and assets better and more tightly manage their responses during unexpected incidents. Michael’s more than 20 years of experience developing incident management solutions offers insight into the experience and passion that drive him to lead the Groupdolists team to strive to deliver new state of the art technology.
Luke FoxFounder & CEO at WhiteFox
Detect & Stop Drone Threats Before They Happen
Most existing solutions are ineffective, illegal, or dangerous. Eagles, hunter drones and net guns are inaccurate, require constant human supervision, and don’t scale with modern threats like drone swarms. Illegal solutions like sniper rifles and jammers cause collateral damage, require trained personnel, and are reliant on human eyesight for threat detection.
DroneFox – gives you Automated, Effective & Legal Airspace Security – DroneFox proprietary algorithms creates an invisible dome of defense that’s both effective and legal. DroneFox gives the power of automatic detection, always updated threat identification, and one-click mitigation. Whether you’re securing a fixed building or need mobile protection, it’s now safer above with DroneFox.
► Detect – DroneFox gives you the intelligence to rapidly detect drones in the airspace and differentiate between authorized & illegal drones by constantly analyzing multiple bands within the RF spectrum.
► Identify – DroneFox gives you the power to quickly determine whether the detected drone is a threat by offering mission critical information, including drone forensic ID, flight time of drone, and more.
► Mitigate – With DroneFox, you are in control. One click can land, reroute, or return the identified threat by taking operation of the drone & locking the original pilot out—without intruding or interfering with other signals in the airspace.
WISDM – Trusted identification for drones and universal traffic management
► Product – Comprised of nodes and modules, WISDM as a product is lightweight, easy to deploy, and truly secure. The module attaches to the drone, broadcasting the drone’s flight information and unique identifier. That identifier is authenticated by a node, which can range in size from a fixed-position antenna to a mobile phone.
► Protocol – As a stand-alone remote ID protocol, WISDM directly integrates into the drone’s software. WISDM uses industry-leading cryptographic engineering to ensure identities cannot be invented, forged, or modified. The same end-to-end authenticating process occurs without the physical attachments of modules.
Luke Fox is CEO of WhiteFox, a global leader in drone airspace security. Pioneering the safe integration of drones into society, WhiteFox products securely manage drones in sensitive airspace worldwide. Prior to WhiteFox, Luke successfully built and operated cyber-forensics and high-performance drone manufacturing companies. During this time, he came to recognize the power drones have to change the world—it just depends whose hands they are in. This realization spurred Luke’s vision for establishing a comprehensive market solution to ensure drones fly safely and legally.
