During emergency responses, every second is important. That’s why Dayton-based GlobalFlyte developed a Multimodal Communication (MMC) software that integrates mapping, imaging and smartphone technologies to enable first responders to listen to multiple radio channels at once. Developed by the Air Force Research Lab (AFRL), GlobalFlyte also accurately transcribes messages almost instantly, helping first responders comprehend dangerous situations. GlobalFlyte’s innovative software is the result of a venture between the Wright Brothers Institute and SP Global, and uses technology developed by the AFRL at Wright-Patterson Air Force Base. The software has allowed for extensive collaboration between the U.S. Air Force, research institutions, public safety organizations and the greater Dayton business community. GlobalFlyte has also worked closely with Rev1 Ventures, a partner of Ohio Third Frontier and was awarded a grant from the Technology Validation and Start-up Fund.
