Amika Mobile has joined the EDGE® Innovation Centre in Ottawa, Canada - part of the EDGE Innovation Network, a unique collaborative environment designed to accelerate the development of new products and technology to solve challenges facing defence, public safety and law enforcement organizations today. The EDGE brings together representatives from military and first responder agencies, scientists, small innovative technology firms, and established defence contractors in an open forum to share information and ideas.
"Amika Mobile's focus on critical alerts and emergency mass notification and its unique auto-discovery of wired and wireless devices makes it a strong fit for the EDGE Innovation Network and we are looking forward to working closely with the EDGE Innovation Network on enhancing and delivering combined solutions to military and first responder organizations." stated Amika Mobile CEO Dr. Sue Abu-Hakima.
"The power of the EDGE comes from the members. Today, the rapid pace of technology development and complexity of those technologies means that no single company has all the answers to meet the needs of its customers. As a new member of EDGE, Amika Mobile will contribute to our ability to better leverage a collective set of ideas, available technologies, and resources," said Dave Ibbetson, general manager, General Dynamics Canada.
The EDGE Innovation Network, sponsored by General Dynamics C4 Systems, is a worldwide network of 12 EDGE Innovation Centres with approximately 270 members focused on rapidly delivering new technologies and innovative capabilities to military and government personnel, public safety and law enforcement professionals. The EDGE Innovation Centre in Ottawa, supported by General Dynamics Canada, was created as an environment where large and small businesses can work cooperatively with academic institutions to address capability gaps identified by Canadian defence, security and public safety organizations.
