Internet of Things to Provide Intelligence for Urban Warfare

Over the next 30 years, the U.S. military will find itself fighting more battles in urban areas as populations rise across the globe. Cities such as Shanghai and Beijing currently contain more than 20 million residents each, and the United Nations expects the number of “megacities” — with populations surpassing 10 million people — to increase from 28 in 2016 to nearly 50 by 2030.

As Urban warfare continues to rise over the next couple of decades, Vital Alerts CommPac can greatly benefit military personnel and first responders communicate in Wifi and RF denied areas, allowing them to connect in underground and dense urban environments.

“In a megacity, you have a lot of interference, you’re going to have a lot of … propagation issues,” he said. Troops will require command-and-control systems that can operate in an environment with a lot of signals congestion, said Lt. Col. Jeffrey Kawada.

The CommPac is the perfect device that penetrates the volume caused by urban environments where high signal congestion is an issue. Using Very Low Frequency (VLF) technology, Vital Alert is able evade congestion allowing first responders and the military to send data, voice and text, without interference.

Israel touts 'steel dome' as answer to terror tunnels

For the fourth time in three months, Israel employed what is being called here its “steel dome” to detect and destroy a cross-border tunnel from the Gaza Strip.

Inspired by the Israeli Iron Dome, which combines radar, a discriminating battle management system and kinetic interceptors against short-range rockets and other cross-border threats from the air, the so-called steel dome is a multilayered system of new technologies, tactics and procedures aimed at denying militants from Hamas and Gaza-based terror organizations the ability to attack Israel from underground.

Tunnel warfare has become standard in Israel and neighbouring countries. By combining the technology of the Iron Dome, and our CanaryCommPac communication system, defence forces have the ability to detect and covertly communicate in man made tunnels, effectively blocking enemy lines.

Pentagon Launches New Push For Tunnel-Warfare Tech

“Underground settings are becoming increasingly relevant to global security and safety,” DARPA program manager Timothy Chung said in a taped segment announcing the challenge on Thursday. “Rising populations and urbanization are driving the demand to not only build up but also to build down…subterranean environments have remained an untapped domain in terms of developing breakthrough technologies for national security.” In other words, we need more tunnel tech — and as soon as possible.

Vital Alert has the capability to create safer environments for security and military personnel to communicate and send information in underground tunnels, preventing the advancement of  enemy lines. By using VLF tech, our CanaryCommPac is a portable device allowing the passage of voice, text and data through solid materials from underground man-made tunnels, to teams stationed below and above ground.

VA takes on DARPA's Subterranean Challenge

The DARPA Subterranean Challenge, or SubT, is soliciting proposals for new approaches to rapidly map, navigate, and search underground environments, according to a DARPA statement.

“One of the main limitations facing war fighters and emergency responders in subterranean environments is a lack of situational awareness; we often don’t know what lies beneath us,” said Timothy Chung, a program manager in DARPA’s Tactical Technology Office. “The DARPA Subterranean Challenge aims to provide previously unimaginable situational awareness capabilities for operations underground.”

Here at Vital Alert, we can solve DARPA’s SubT environment challenge using our VLF technology to communicate through any materials including, rock, soil and concrete, for up to 300m below the ground, both vertically and horizontally.  Being able to send voice, text, and data through the earth, allows security teams to communicate with one another underground and to the surface,  during emergency situations.

Vital Alert hosts Toyota ITC

Vital Alert Communication Inc. hosted representatives from Toyota InfoTechnology Center Co., Ltd. and Toyota Tsusho America, Inc. at the Carleton University Campus to demonstrate Vital Alert’s positioning technology as part of the infrastructure to support autonomous vehicles. Vital Alert successfully demonstrated the use of Very Low Frequency (VLF) technology to provide accurate (0.5m) positioning data in an environment where typical positioning technologies such as GPS and Wi-Fi do not perform well, due to blockage and reflection of the signals by tall buildings. This demonstration builds upon research in the field of electromagnetic modelling performed in conjunction with the Department of Earth Sciences and the Department of Systems and Computer Engineering, Carleton University.

VA at National Mine Rescue 2017

Vital Alert Communication is excited to to be taking part in the National Mine Rescue, First Aid, Bench, Skills and Preshift Contest at the National Mine Academy in Beaver, West Virginia between September 11–14, 2017!

Mine rescue contests are designed to sharpen skills and test the knowledge of team members who would be called on to respond to a mine emergency. The contest requires team members to solve a hypothetical problem while being timed and observed by judges according to complex rules.

As a leader in communication devices for mining operations, Vital Alert is inspired by the opportunity to show how our Through-the-Earth technology can break barriers and save lives!

Vital Alert and Toyota-ITC Research Positioning for Smart Cars and Cities

Vital Alert is excited to announce the second agreement with Toyota – ITC for the development of positioning technology in smart cities to support the Advanced Driver Assistance Systems (ADAS) and autonomous vehicles. As part of our first agreement, we proved that Very Low Frequency (VLF) technology is able to provide positioning data in urban environments. This follow on agreement will take the technology to the next level by improving the accuracy and positioning. 

This agreement is another validation Vital Alert is a world leader in Very Low Frequency technology, enabling smart cities, autonomous vehicles and through-the-earth communications.
