NowForce Joins EDGE® Innovation Network

Washington DC, May 1 2012 - NowForce announced today it has joined the EDGE® Innovation Network, a collaborative, open-environment initiative enabling industry and academia, with government input, to work together to enhance the delivery cycle of new technologies and innovative capabilities to warfighters and first responders.

Assaf Shafran, CEO of Nowforce said, “We are thrilled to become a member of the EDGE Innovation Network and expect this collaboration will expedite integration of the NowForce system into many more wireless communication platforms and devices.”

The NowForce C4i Mobile Command and Control Smartphone System converts GPS-enabled mobile phone into emergency response networks for military, Emergency Medical Teams, fire, law enforcement and security organizations. NowForce gives users the ability to create and run missions from smartphones and operates over the “cloud.” This eliminates the need to purchase additional expensive hardware and ensures that \ responders are always connected. NowForce solutions run on Android, IPhone, Windows Mobile and BlackBerry platforms.

Pete Palmer, EDGE Innovation Network director, said, “The EDGE provides a new paradigm by using both physical and virtual environments where members and users can collaborate and innovate together to deliver new technologies and capabilities in months rather than years.”
