Pleora Technologies Joins Edge Innovation Network

OTTAWA, CANADA - Pleora Technologies announced that it has joined the Edge Innovation Network, a collaborative, open-environment initiative enabling industry and academia, with government input, to work together to deliver new technologies and innovative capabilities to warfighters and first responders faster.

"The Edge network will give Pleora a deeper understanding of the needs of soldiers using our technology, allowing us to tailor our solutions more closely to their needs," says Robert Lee, vice-president of marketing, Pleora Technologies. "We look forward to working with other Edge members to identify opportunities where our networked video connectivity solutions can be leveraged to improve the safety and tactical advantage of warfighters."

Pete Palmer, Edge Innovation Network director, says, "The Edge bridges gaps between end-user needs and current capabilities by promoting rapidly prototyped solutions that could close those gaps quickly. By applying the Edge process, the government can quickly and cost-effectively review multiple options for users to evaluate in months rather than years."

Sponsored by General Dynamics C4 Systems, the Edge has already delivered several innovations including a Soldier Intelligence Surveillance and Reconnaissance (ISR) Receiver, or SIR, to the U.S. Army. About the size of a Blackberry, the SIR device delivers real-time streaming video from multiple manned or unmanned assets into the hands of soldiers on the ground. Currently, there are more than 10 projects in development intended to improve and enhance warfighter capabilities.
