F3 Technologies, Inc., and Noble Heroes, Inc., are preparing to relaunch the website of Interactive Defense System, the public-safety platform we developed. The overhauled site will go live around July 13 or 14; in the meantime, here’s a preview:

The site will include new pages with additional information about IDS, and will eventually include a demonstration video in Flash and interfaces modeled on those used by our customers — police officers and city residents.

Interactive Defense, LLC, recently signed its first major customer, a forward-thinking and influential police department in the metro-Atlanta area, and is moving forward in discussions with public-safety agencies in several other sizable cities. The overhauled website is part of the next phase: making it easier for new client cities to adopt IDS in a smoother, more automated fashion.

A little background on Interactive Defense System: it’s our groundbreaking platform for city residents and police officers to communicate with one another. It allows police to put out immediate text- and e-mail alerts on missing children, criminal suspects and dangerous situations. It allows residents to share crime tips more directly with officers and with each other, request officer assistance, and notify police when their homes will be vacant due to moves or vacation.

Interactive Defense System is a specialized version of F3’s Interaction Community Systems networking solution for homeowners associations and other member groups. Several common features and the ability to connect the two platforms translate into sales synergy: When city governments and public-safety agencies adopt IDS, residents in those cities get a look at what Interaction can do for their homeowners associations and realize how easy it is to adopt Interaction.

But back to IDS. It includes two unique virtual networks: Safety Center for community members and HeroSpace for municipal employees. The Safety Center allows police and residents to trade up-to-the-minute information on important safety issues. HeroSpace is a professional network for firefighters, police officers and other municipal employees that fosters interdepartmental collaboration and the efficient use of time and resources.

A police department can invite residents to join its Interactive Defense network using contact information that other municipal departments already have on file. In most cases, residents and municipal employees will be able to access Interactive Defense through one or more of the city’s existing websites.
