Ordia Solutions announced the availability of the RIM BlackBerry as the newest client platform for its next generation collaborative command and control solution Mobile Tactical Collaboration System (MTCS) and AdvanTraq GPS. This development marks a major milestone in the company's quest to extend its mission-critical, collaborative command and control solution directly to the hand of first responders, tactical operators, and senior leadership.

MTCS running on a phone device had its first public demonstration during CEO Joe Ordia's address to the Major Cities Chiefs Association's 2008 Winter Meeting in Vancouver on February 5th. Acting as an incident commander in a fictitious all-hazards scenario, Ordia demonstrated, using mobile computers wirelessly connected via air cards, the collaborative command and control, common operating picture, and real-time situational awareness capabilities of MTCS.

As he concluded the demonstration, Ordia pulled a BlackBerry 8830 World Edition Smartphone from his jacket pocket that was already logged on the MTCS workspace, and passed it to the Chiefs while he continued to update the scenario and displaying these updates on the mobile computers as well as on the Smartphone.

"Supporting the Smartphone platform effectively extends the command and control situational awareness capabilities to the farthest reaches up and down the chain of command, enabling officers, commanders, and chiefs to have access to real-time Command Post information anywhere anytime," said Joe Ordia, Chairman and CEO, Ordia Solutions.

"MTCS has played a force-multiplier role in several high-profile deployments with federal, state, and local law enforcement agencies and fire/EMS departments. We have received numerous requests from our customers for this platform and we were thrilled with the positive reception from a number of the Major Cities Chiefs and their senior staff."
