A key component, wireless sensor networking, helps mitigate threats to people, national borders and critical infrastructure. And electronic offender monitoring and tracking from BI Incorporated helps improve law enforcement effectiveness and control costs.

C4ISR

Lextech Labs and Global Relief Technologies (GRT) have C4ISR solutions that collect and distribute near real-time information for better situational awareness and more effective decision making. Response teams can collect and share data and video feeds to improve reaction time and control operating costs. The GRT Rapid Data Management System (RDMS) enables organizations to rapidly collect, collaborate and analyze data from the field, and offers a concise package that is easy to use and deploy.

Health and human services

Public health solutions from Entra Health Systems and Amcom Software provide advanced options for monitoring and communicating changes in patient conditions within the hospital and at home. The result is more-connected care teams that include patients, service providers and caregivers.
