FACING THE PROBLEM
The soldier pictured is using his mobile phone. Is he simply checking the latest sports scores or is he using it to share sensitive military information with colleagues from other nations using WhatsApp because he cannot speak with them on his radio ?
As hard as it is to believe, in 2017 many of our troops are using WhatsApp to communicate with each other because their radios are not interoperable. Fixing the problem with the radios will be expensive and time consuming.
ForceApp, the military secure alternative to WhatsApp is the solution that can be delivered at a fraction of the cost of upgrading the radios and with greater security than current unauthorized commercial solutions.
Amyntor MDM Software is a security and management software for IT administrators who wish to monitor, manage and secure corporate or personally owned mobile devices. The Product uses client-server architecture, with the devices acting as clients while MDM server remotely pushes configurations, apps, and policies managing the devices over-the-air (OTA).
IT administrators can remotely manage mobile endpoints such as mobile phones and tablets via the MDM server. It leverages the notification services available to contact the managed devices. It includes storing essential information about mobile devices, deciding which apps can be present on the devices, locating devices, and securing devices if lost or stolen.
The Aratos ADAS is seventh generation Anti-drone Defender Autonomy System.
It is designed in mobile and stationary version to disable the hostile unmanned aerial vehicles (UAVs), ensuring protection of big areas and VIPs objects, or group of stationary objects, groups of people and/or other targets.
The Aratos ADAS Anti-drone Defender Autonomy System is a modular device, which consists of separate RADAR, OPTICS, RADIO and JAMMER modules. It is equipped with drone detection radar system and minimum 8 jammer modules.
The radar module is solid state, operating in “X”-band, large radar display area, dedicated GPS map aerial imagery and Doppler target evaluation.
The Aratos ADAS is fully autonomous system, and requires no supervision by operator.
The Aratos ADAS Anti-drone Defender Autonomy Mobile System corresponds to the requirements of professional equipment working stationary and in motion. It has been engineered according to MIL810F NATO Standard.The Aratos ADAS has an automatic protection system, which ensures its flawless operation.
This system monitors the operation modes of the radar and transmitter modules and the normal emission of the respective antennas. It keeps the monitored parameters in safety ranges. In the case of inadmissible changes in operation modes (i.e. no cooling and others) the protection system shuts down the corresponding module.
The design of the system gives all necessary information to the operator about the proper work of the system. It monitors normal power supply; readiness for working of the radar and transmitter modules, as well as transmitting of high-frequency energy to the antennas.
The security of servicing personnel is assured according to SAR EU Standard, as well as STANAG2345 NATO Standard.

Under the guidance of Naval Group Belgium, in the frame of the EDIDP (European Defence Industrial Development Programme) and in line with PESCO project MAS MCM (Maritime semi- Autonomous Mine Counter Measures), ForceApp BV will be one of the 19 top European partners working together in a consortium that will strengthen European capabilities in mine countermeasures for harsh environment and evolving threats.
The project named MIRICLE will bolster European and sovereign capacity in future warfare and pave the way of the next generation of countermeasure solutions “made in Europe”, hence improving capacities to fight against maritime mines.
The project is expected to last 24-months and will cover study, design and prototyping, and test activities dedicated to strengthening R&D cooperation and technical excellence in mine countermeasures of all European countries. It will also contribute to future European Defence Fund (EDF) developments, addressing main mine countermeasure challenges and enabling the European naval community to pursue the development of a unique mine action capability. Thanks to the European Commission and the financial support of the associated Member States, the nineteen partners will benefit in the future of a strategic autonomy in the mine warfare domain.
The technologies developed will enable European navies to benefit from the highest and most interoperable military mine countermeasures capabilities, in accordance with NATO recommendations. These innovations will complement the main components of mine warfare, made up of Mine Counter Measure (MCM) vessel, unmanned vehicles and robots (“Toolbox”), the mission system, the communication network and artificial Intelligence-powered decision making.
MIRICLE has three main objectives:
• to provide a comprehensive and forward-looking definition and assessment of the MCM technologies
• to set up the technological development roadmap for next generation of countermeasure solutions, which corresponds to Member States' procurement plans. MIRICLE is supported by 8 countries who have signed a common Letter of Intent under the coordination of Belgian Defence
• to develop the interoperability of these assets
ForceApp will be joining MIRICLE to provide it with the knowledge, skill, and innovative philosophy that we carry in all our solutions.
