Native, Secure Data Handling
MindLink Anywhere protects highly sensitive information using techniques that have been developed for TOP SECRET information by the Intelligence Community. It leverages a set of prescribed mechanisms based on technology, policy and human behaviour to meet niche requirements for intelligence and defence. These are provided natively, without the need for external components, as first-class safeguard mechanisms ensuring data is handled correctly and transparently to prevent data spillage or leakage.
MindLink Anywhere serves as the access point to a multitenant chat estate. Users sign on to the web client to collaborate and coordinate with authorised, external, mission or coalition partners. It offers a centralised approach with rapid on-boarding for mission partners to collaborate within secure compartments on the same system. This enables collaboration across national and organizational boundaries on a single platform and promotes operational agility as it allows swift access for new mission partners.
MindLink Anywhere fully integrates government-mandated classification labelling into the chat paradigm for all conversations, messages, and content. It ensures message content is organized and displayed appropriately according to data handling specifications, whilst cross-referencing security clearances, sensitivity, and dissemination for each user. This enables collaboration around highly sensitive topics, whilst applying necessary handling techniques to mitigate data loss or spillage.
MindLink Anywhere offers the real time communication modalities needed for mission-critical collaboration. It offers 1-1 and persistent group chat with the options to escalate to multiparty conversation and include new participants or initiate an audio call. This provides mission partners with a real time collaboration platform to serve the collaboration needs of the entire mission theatre.
MindLink Anywhere is designed as a single-pane of glass user experience with purpose built mission features, presenting users a highly organised view of mission-critical information in real time. It allows users to maintain a realtime overview of time-sensitive information and respond to mission events as they unfold from a single application. This optimizes collaboration workflows for efficiency across the mission theatre for improved situational awareness, decision-making and mission outcomes.
Rich Messaging Features
MindLink Anywhere is a chat web-client with familiar, modern, messaging features common to most chat applications in addition to its mission-focused capabilities. Users can easily share mission information with team mates and partners with options for hashtags, mentions, emojis, code snippets, file uploads, real time translation and more. This encourages information flow across the mission theatre through a familiar and easy to use collaboration experience.
Filtering & Notifications
MindLink Anywhere is host to filtering and notification options to catch specific messages and alert users to important content exchanges in real time. It supports users in their ability to identify and distinguish information that is critical as and when it is received particularly in scenarios where high volumes of information are exchanged. This reduces the lead time to identify and relay mission-critical information between users across large volumes of information.
MindLink Anywhere users can set a unique custom display name in each chatroom. It assigns context and meaning to a display name as users can choose to set this to reflect their role in the mission or chatroom. This improves situational awareness between team members and as they can quickly identify other users and their roles in the context of the mission, especially across large mission arenas.
MindLink Anywhere carries white-labeling options to support custom branding, data management workflows, and content. It allows the application to be deployed as a branded multitenant service, customized for each tenant user. This delivers customisation on behalf of other agencies logging on and promotes a brand-consistent user experience for external mission partners.
API Integrations for Mission Systems
Send and receive information from MindLink Anywhere to/from other mission systems using the MindLink API. It allows users to consume data feeds from other mission systems or carry out functions from within the MindLink Anywhere web client. This reduces the cognitive load for users as they can automate and manage tasks involving other mission systems from a single window and helps the mission execute efficiently.
Chatrooms in MindLink Anywhere can host an add-in frame within the conversation window. Add-ins can be configured to display and allow users to interact with external content, like other mission applications. It surfaces mission systems and information alongside chat so the user has a detailed, organised overview of information, relevant to the mission or task at hand, in a single window. This converges information and mission workflows to improve awareness, efficiency and response times in the execution of the mission.
Connect with existing Chat Systems
MindLink Anywhere can bridge communications from different collaboration systems in the same web-client. It presents a unified user experience across different chat systems without the need to sign into multiple clients. This enables connectivity for C4ISR components on different, un-interoperable, systems.
MindLink Anywhere supports the use of third party authentication providers. It delegates user authentication to existing authentication infrastructure such as military-grade IDAM and Key Card systems. This protects systems with the required authentication and authorisation protocols.
Over the Horizon Resilience
Lightweight, Web Browser Client
MindLink Anywhere is a web-access client that can be run from any device with a web browser It is engineered to provide a powerful user experience in a lightweight application, accessible from anywhere without the need of heavy equipment. This offers mission partners a zero-footprint, always available, collaboration access point across the mission arena.
Real-time, High Volume
MindLink Anywhere is designed for high-volume, real-time collaboration. With an optimized user interface users can consume and participate in multiple fast-flowing group conversations simultaneously. This gives users the ability to maintain a constant overview of messages and content to drive situational awareness in real time.
MindLink Anywhere is architected and tested to operate in areas of poor connectivity or limited network coverage. It is proven to operate reliably in isolated, remote and bandwidth-constrained mission deployments. This enables consistent, real-time collaboration across all mission components including remote/forward deployed assets.
Secure Collaboration from Anywhere
MindLink Anywhere is engineered to be the defacto secure communications tool for mission collaboration. It enables swift interaction with mission partners to increase situational awareness in real time. From remote warships to forward deployed personnel stationed on the hill-side, MindLink Anywhere presents a single user interface into all aspects of the mission.
MindLink Anywhere leverages a single http port connection for all communication. It simplifies the setup, configuration, monitoring and maintenance for the system. In terms of security, it presents the smallest possible attack surface for minimal vulnerability and external exposure. This ensures maximum security posture and reduces the workload for IT teams to manage and support the system.
