DragonForce Expedites Infrastructure Monitoring & Response for Utility Customers

BLUE BELL, PENNSYLVANIA, USA, April 26, 2021

DragonForce has developed a set of collaborative tools designed to assist utility customers in expediting their field response and recovery time to incidents. Stakeholders can quickly access the data they need to monitor their infrastructure and utility maintenance, protect their personnel, manage fleets and assets, and view detailed vehicle tracking to facilitate an immediate response to natural disasters and outages.

Many field operations involve employees working alone, often at remote locations, which presents a challenge in ensuring worker safety and accountability. The DragonForce Vigilance Lone Worker module provides an easy to deploy and use solution to meet that challenge. Field workers can rest assured that help will be dispatched to their location immediately in the event of unpredictable circumstances.

DragonForce Quick Feature Layers (QFL) enables dynamic operational maps in seconds. Quickly overlay outage information, recovery, and crew locations in real-time. Easily display natural disaster storm paths or an ad hoc map overlay that needs to get out quickly to your team. DragonForce QFL is the answer for all these scenarios.

DragonForce Quick Feature Layers (QFL) Enables Dynamic Mapping Capability

Command | Control | Collaborate

BLUE BELL, PENNSYLVANIA, USA, April 26, 2021

DragonForce Quick Feature Layers (QFL) is now available! This new feature enables users to use map feature layers by simply dropping your GIS exported files into your group workspace for immediate deployment. These feature layers are immediately added to your DragonForce map to enable and disable at will; furthermore, this feature allows teams to continue to work in an offline state because these files download locally and are available when critical information is needed most.

DragonForce QFL uses industry-standard GIS file types like KML and KMZ for search and rescue, oil, gas, and pipeline needs, critical infrastructure, building outlines, hiking trails, and natural disaster storm paths. Administrators can quickly create and send ad hoc map overlays that need to get out to their team. DragonForce QFL is the answer for all these scenarios.

Here’s how it works:

 

  1.  Create your KML file using any GIS tool.

  2.  Export the file and drop it into your DragonForce Group workspace.

  3.  Enable the Quick Feature Layer on your DragonForce map.

 It’s that simple. Never be without your critical GIS information again.

Check out our best practices video here and see how easy it is to expand your operations with DragonForce Quick Layers today!

DragonForce and City of Salem, OR Evolve Crowd Control Operations Mid-protest and Deploy within the same day for added protection

BLUE BELL, PENNSYLVANIA, USA, March 22, 2021

Drakontas, the maker of the industry-leading commanding control platform, DragonForce, and City of Salem, OR, have upgraded their emergency response operations. The City of Salem asked for support with a trial during the recent state of Oregon Capital Protection detail and crowd control needs during the inauguration of President Joe Biden. Dragonforce was able to provision and deploy users within less than an hour and train the city of Salem users to augment their systems in their new Emergency Operations Center to monitor, adapt, and react to any situation that could arise during that time.

DragonForce provides critical personnel location data and voice communications interoperability enabling multiple agencies to collaborate affectively using the smartphones, tablets, and laptops they already use. DragonForce delivers a powerful set of team collaboration tools, including personnel tracking, secure messaging and file sharing, situation reports, tactical whiteboarding, and an integrated Push-to-Talk (PTT) feature providing voice communications.

“Before DragonForce, we were using a simple setup to track our field personnel while requesting continuous radio updates on their status and positions relayed through our dispatchers,” said Sgt. Matt Riddle, City of Salem. “After switching over to DragonForce, we have freed up our dispatchers, and we are now visualizing real-time locations, updates, and receiving pictures and video from our field teams, as well as interoperating and coordinating with other agencies without as much reliance on our radios as our primary interface to get information from the field. It truly had revolutionized and simplified our operations when we needed it most. The fact that the DragonForce team had us up and running in less than an hour was amazing as well. By utilizing DragonForce, we are no longer limited to just a dots-on-the-map solution. We’ve upgraded the city’s entire operations and are bringing on additional city departments like Fire, and Emergency Management, so we have an entire overwatch continuously at our fingertips,” added Sgt. Riddle.

“Our customers must respond to complex, highly dynamic situations that require split-second decisions based on the best possible tactical information available,” said James Sim, Drakontas CEO. “Since its inception, Drakontas was built to simplify complex operations for any city, county, state, or enterprise that requires continuous collaboration and interoperability to provide better, faster, and safer decisions.”

Drakontas Partners with RapidSOS

Providing Life-saving Emergency Data using DragonForce

Drakontas has recently implemented RapidSOS’ emergency response data platform which securely and automatically links life-saving data from connected devices, apps, and profiles directly to 911 and first responders in an emergency. When a 911 call comes in, DragonForce can now query the RapidSOS platform to display caller location and additional data, such as opt-in medical information, telematics, alarm sensor data, and more.

DragonForce embeds RapidSOS web-based tool, RapidSOS Portal, to query a caller’s location and access supplemental data upon receiving a 911 call. With this information, dynamic groups can be assigned to handle the type of incident identified. The information from the RapidSOS Portal is seamlessly integrated with DragonForce’s real-time personnel tracking, tactical whiteboarding, and shared situational reporting capabilities. This streamlines the workflow to identify and assign the appropriate resources to respond to incidents of any type or size. DragonForce provides the “common operating picture” that field responders and key decision-makers need to connect, collaborate, and control any incident.
