Critical infrastructure enterprises are xperiencing rapid change in communications technology and a corresponding explosion
in information. These trends present opportunities to
improve service delivery, but also significant challenges
in managing all of that change. Meeting the challenge
requires the collaboration of technology providers.
Tait has been breaking new ground with an innovative
approach to delivering applications for Public Safety.
The approach has been to host a series of “AppStorm”
days that bring clients, application partners, geeks and
gurus together in one room for some high speed problem
solving and App coding.
“LMR has typically had very long development cycles,
very slow rates of innovation. We set out to change
the game, to bring the speed and innovation of a start-up to our clients.” says John Whittaker, Tait Lean
The project has produced a range of solutions from
An open invitation to developers
better battery management tools, to voice tagging of
location, to automated search for survivors using UAVs
and asset tracking. With many Apps, the objective has
been harvesting and “mashing up” various information
sources (regardless of source technologies), and
presenting all those sources in one consolidated view,
creating simplicity out of complex situations.
The AppStorms have come out of the Tait Application
Enablement project. The project aims to provide an
easy framework for development of a suite of Application
Programming Interfaces (APIs) that can be used across
P25, LTE and cellular. These are now freely available
to developers throughout the industry.
