Security teams coordinating security plans for the Super Bowl 50 are using a first-of-its-kind mobile app developed by BlueLine Grid technology – a DC-based startup that operates a collaboration network for law enforcement, first responders, and security teams around the country.

The security mobile app is deployed for the Northern California Regional Intelligence Center (NCRIC) at Bay Area’s “fusion center,” of one 78 federally-supported intelligence and information centers that include representatives from top federal, state, and local agencies.
Fusion center leaders had successfully used the mobile app platform immediately following terrorist attacks in Paris and San Bernardino; and now it is being deployed for Northern California security during the Super Bowl 50.
“The BlueLine Grid platform enables us to alert our public safety and private sector partners in real-time and get their feedback more quickly and effectively,” said NCRIC Director Mike Sena, who is also President of the National Fusion Center Association. “It’s a first-of-its kind approach to critical incident management and regional collaboration.”
Former Inspector General of the US Department of Homeland Security, Clark Ervin, noted that BlueLine Grid’s mobile app security removes the problems of interoperability and intelligence-sharing among security officers – something that becomes more useful in the aftermath of 9/11 so that public safety agencies can be on top of today’s dynamic threat environment.
Ervin is presently the director of Homeland Security Program at Aspen Institute and a board member at BlueLine Grid.
Last year, the company got a strategic investment from In-Q-Tel, an investment arm of the US Intelligence Community; and last month revealed a partnership with Motorola Solutions whereby BlueLine Grid’s innovative software can be integrated into Motorola’s public safety radio systems. It must also be mentioned that Double M Partners and others are among BlueLine Grid’s investors.

“BlueLine Grid brings real-time alerting and collaboration to NCRIC analysts and regional partners,” BlueLine Grid President Jack Weiss said. “We are replicating the NCRIC’s strategy with fusion centers, agencies, and corporations across the country.”
