Monday, August 27, 2018 | Comments

Airbus kicked off a "Critical App Challenge" for Belgium to set in motion regional developers and startups to create the best applications for public-safety users. Airbus invites the regional developer community to create innovative digital solutions for public safety using the Tactilon Dabat device, an Android smartphone and TETRA radio in one.

The aim is to establish new digital solutions to help police, firefighters and other professionals improve their work. The concept is based on the idea of hackathons where software pioneers, user interface designers and business managers work together intensively in a limited amount of time toward building proofs of concept for innovative digital solutions.

Start-up companies and app creators from Belgium can enroll for the online challenge. An expert jury will then select the five best participants who can show the most promising and feasible results at the end of September. The winners will subsequently be invited to the ASTRID User Days 2018 in Brussels 3 – 4 October.

"We are looking for path-breaking ideas for our Tactilon Dabat,” said Rahim Zaknoun, head of innovation and developer ecosystem at secure land communication of Airbus. “This Critical App Challenge in Belgium is a unique incentive for inventive minds. Contributors profit from getting special access to mission-critical markets.”
