Benefits of Coolfire

By developing a lightweight system that utilizes existing hardware and software, Coolfire provides police, military and security forces with a common operational picture. U.S. DoD-approved, Coolfire connects operational headquarters and dismounted users with surveillance and communication systems, air and ground sensors, and other deployed assets. The result is true, secure situational awareness for all stakeholders.

Single interface for multi-vendor radios e.g. Codan, Motorola
Wireless Bluetooth interface to radios
Collaborative SA, data, chat with server-based capability
Supports multiple languages such as English, Spanish, and Russian

True Situational Awareness

Connects warfighters to sensors, information systems and each other while operating at the tactical edge. Coolfire’s core technology places data, location, and status at a user’s fingertips to enhance decision-making and improve operations. Users share their situational awareness data with teammates to create a common operational picture and execute with precision.

Real-Time Communications

Deliver a unified, real-time picture of operations to every user in the system, from Headquarters to the warfighter. Coolfire provides an environment for aggregating data from multiple sources, unifying communications and visualizing everything in a user-friendly experience. Information can flow up and down, ensuring the right data is in the right hands, in real-time.
