Hardware-based crossdomain access solutions for OSINT

As the importance of open-source intelligence (OSINT) to military operations has become increasingly clear to Nato members and other armed forces around the world, so too have the risks of lax cybersecurity and the growing vulnerability of increasingly complex software systems. Garrison provides next generation cross-domain solutions that rely on hardware-based security, overcoming the many obstacles that have plagued traditional OSINT models.

Protection for units in complex operations

Established as a trusted worldwide supplier, Blücher has now consolidated all of its protective materials, garments and services under the SARATOGA brand. Providing full-spectrum and broad band protection for first responders and the military across a wide variety of complex yet highly specific operations, SARATOGA is the premier choice for CBRN protective gear.

A key supply of prehospital and combat casualty care

Established in Sandviken, Sweden, in 1995, Promoteq provides medical equipment in the four following categories: prehospital systems solutions, consumables, medical technology and simulators.

Connecting the battlefield

Rugged laptops and other new technologies are transforming how armies do battle. But without robust cables and connectors to connect diffuse systems, success in this new world is impossible. We explore how the growing sophistication of rugged electronics makes partnering with a reliable connector provider more crucial than ever, and how US company Omnetics can help.

The industry’s one-stop line of supply for the demolitions train

Few companies can boast that they are able to supply any and all demolitions requirements, but CBRNergetics views itself as an outlier in the field. Providing products from initiation to detonation and deactivation to safe disposal, the company aims to cover the whole supply chain – R&D, quote, contract, production, licensing, freight services and delivery. We speak to Kevin Catallo, commercial director at the company, to learn more.

USBs are no longer keys to unlock military networks

With so much sensitive data transferred on USB sticks, it is essential to ensure that they are thoroughly sanitised. This is where specialist technology provider Hunna can help.

Vital communications for every emergency

5G promises to be the communication technology of the future – if users ensure their devices can exploit it, anyway. We talk to Oliver Ledgard at Zebra Technologies about the company’s range of rugged 5G-equipped devices, and how they could be useful across a range of crises.
