COMPANY DESCRIPTION
RoGo Fire is developing an advanced satellite communication solution including devices and software designed to enable wildland firefighters to communicate and access data in remote areas where cellular service is unreliable or not available.
Our mission is to deliver a communication system that will reduce line of duty deaths, firefighting expense and property damage, as well as improve firefighter situational awareness by ensuring a productive deployment of emergency responders and a more effective hazard response execution utilizing state of the art communications technology.


PROBLEM / OPPORTUNITY
On today's large wildland fires, there is a lack of current and consistent communication technology to support the firefighting personnel - resulting in communications inaccuracies, no communication at all and limited timely updates. This is primarily due to the constant hand-off of information between parties (think the telephone game), no VHF or cellular service in remote areas, use of two-way radios and the large distances between parties in a remote emergency scene.


SOLUTION/PRODUCT
RoGo has developed a patented integrated satellite communications system incorporating GPS / Satcom enabled tablets, portable GPS transceivers (Dropballs), a mobile network operating center, the top incident management software (including EGP) and Satcom communications providers. Our Firefighting Advanced Asset, Communication, Tracking System (FAACTS) will enable firefighters to communicate with Incident Command and emergency response operations in real time and share up to the minute vital scene information: Status & GPS location of firefighters and resources, weather, digital mapping, photos, changes in assignment, etc.


TARGET MARKET
Initially, we are targeting firefighting and emergency responders who are in desperate need of newer communication technology. All types of hazard response teams could utilize this system. Secondary markets in consideration are DoD, insurance, remote mining, oil & gas, logging, utilities, outdoor adventure, commercial fishing, remote healthcare and all hazards incidents. We extend the functionality of any SaaS platform in remote areas where there is no WiFi or cell service.


REVENUE MODEL
Sell or Rent the devices and software solutions directly to government agencies in conjunction with our partnerships with software providers and satcom service fee.


COMPETITION
While there are several satellite phone manufacturers, Satcom providers and incident management software solutions in the market, we have not found any integrators providing a comprehensive solution that incorporates the latest technology and addressed the needs of deployed emergency responders and wildland firefighters.


COMPETITIVE ADVANTAGE

The secret sauce of the RoGo System is based on our patented 3-part system. We offer a completely integrated solution that provides technology and functionality to all of those involved in wildland firefighting. We are focused on providing a wildland firefighting solution that brings information and technology to those who need it the most – the firefighters in remote areas. FAACTS is based on the best SATCOM data bandwidth available, a wildland fire asset tracking and data resource communication system, touch screen position calling for direct communication and GPS location and tracking devices with vector positioning for slurry drops and a GPS/Satcom enabled tablet that is deployable to the crews – providing access to situational awareness information needed to be more effective in their efforts.
