Collaborative Environment and Electronic Whiteboard

This Java based software provides the ability to share information and collaborate across the internet without having to disseminate data and risk compromising the information from theft.

Collaborator is a patented software product originally developed for mission planning and situational awareness where available communication bandwidth is limited. Using login security levels and a multi tabbed whiteboard, it provides strict adherence to the Bell-LaPadula model. Each user only accesses information cleared for their security level. Multiple interdependent security level collaborations can exist simultaneously. Any Java applet can be instantiated into the Collaborator environment, like GIS tools, tracks, maps, and education curriculums. Because Collaborator is Java based, it has cross platform operability on multiple Microsoft, Linux, and Apple operating systems.

  • Provides an ideal distance/networked educational platform
  • Java based allows maximum flexibility and interoperability
  • Adherence to the Bell-LaPadula security model
  • Very strong intellectual property position
