The Colony, TX, United States, 2010/01/20 - Squire Tech Solutions announced it has joined the EDGE® Innovation Network, a collaborative, open-environment initiative enabling industry and government to work together to field new solutions for warfighters and emergency first responders.
Squire Tech Solutions, LLC, 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 field new technologies and innovative capabilities to warfighters and first responders much faster than the typical acquisition cycle.
“Squire Tech Solutions mobile response division designs and develops satellite leveraged communications systems for mobility applications,” said Michael Zalle, vice president of Squire Tech Solutions. “We are excited to be joining other industry leading technology companies who see their products benefiting the warfighter as well as in the domestic and international first responder community.”
Sponsored by General Dynamics C4 Systems, the EDGE has already delivered several innovations including a Soldier Intelligence Surveillance and Reconnaissance (ISR) Receiver or SIR to the U.S. Army. About the size of a Blackberry®, the SIR device delivers real-time streaming video directly from multiple manned or unmanned assets directly into the hands of soldiers on the ground. Currently, there are over 10 projects in development intended to improve and enhance warfighter capabilities.
Pete Palmer, EDGE Innovation Network director, said, “The EDGE bridges gaps between end-user needs and current capabilities by promoting rapidly prototyped solutions that could close those gaps quickly. By applying the EDGE process, the government can quickly and cost-effectively review multiple options for users to evaluate in months rather than years.”
There are currently five EDGE Innovation Centers worldwide and over 100 EDGE members. Recent new members include The University of Pittsburgh, Pittsburgh, Pa.; Viecore Federal Systems Division, Eatontown, N.J.; Aspen Systems, Marlborough, Mass.; Florida State University, Tallahassee, Fla.; and the University of California at Santa Barbara.
