November 21, 2019

ST. LOUIS, MO – (November 21, 2019) Coolfire is a trusted provider of Situational Awareness (SA) software, capable of aggregating data, workflows, and communications into a single pane of glass. Their public sector product, RONIN SA, is part of domestic and international defense contracts to improve border security. Earlier this year, Coolfire was selected by the US DoD to support the 2019 Army Expeditionary Warrior Experiments (AEWE 2019) at Fort Benning.

The Army Expeditionary Warrior Experiment (AEWE) is the US Army’s premier experimentation event that tests cutting edge prototype technologies in the hands of soldiers to solve elite unit tactical problems. These experiments are conducted annually to act as a testbed to inform and promote collaboration among Training and Doctrine Command capability managers, the research community, and the Defense industry.

At AEWE, Coolfire software enabled individual soldiers within elite units and manned tactical platforms to track friendly forces and assets, identify enemy targets via markers, chat data, video, and bio-med monitoring. Coolfire demonstrated interoperability with Nett Warrior/ATAK and the ability to deliver real-time situational information, enabling ground-based users and Commanders to meaningfully assess, share, and act upon greater amounts of information, instantly.

According to Don Sharp, President and CEO at Coolfire, “AEWE 2019 is an ideal scenario for Coolfire’s technology. The RONIN SA product is purpose-built to improve a soldier’s situational awareness and delivers a common operational picture.” Sharp added, “With ten years of defense contracts, we understand the immeasurable benefits of hands-on experimentation by actual Soldiers on the battlefield. Our learnings from AEWE ensure we deliver leading-edge product for years to come.”
