Intrepid Networks provides support to mission critical and business critical operations in industries including emergency services, logistics, defense, law enforcement, transportation, construction, and more. The Intrepid Response platform enables personnel to effectively communicate, collaborate, and coordinate during operations.
Intrepid Networks was founded in 2011, when CEO and co-founder Britt Kane noticed that first responders were frequently using nothing more than a radio. Technology had advanced for consumers, and yet, critical members of society were still using antiquated methods. Radio usage had been the standard due to the immediacy of voice communication. However "the most spoken words on radio are... ‘where are you?’ and ‘what did you say, can you repeat that?’” says Bruce Dowlen, Vice President of Marketing at Intrepid Networks. Furthermore, with radio, there can be lag time relaying messages to the appropriate channels. The lost information can be detrimental in urgent situations.
Intrepid Networks partnered with Moxtra to power the Intrepid Response Platform - a simple-to-use web and mobile situational awareness platform for day-to-day and emergency operations. With Intrepid Response, organizations can manage simultaneously multiple operations, decrease response times, and minimize radio traffic during emergencies.
The first 10 minutes of operation is the most confusing time, and lives can be lost in minutes. Seconds count, so when seconds count, I don’t want the guy saving me fiddling around with his radio. I want him to have the information he needs.”

The instant voice transmission provided by radio is not compromised on Intrepid Response. Instead, all aspects of response deployment are combined in one platform for unparalleled situational awareness in any operation - including geospatial mapping, secure team communications, emergency notifications, push-to-talk voice, and collaborative workspaces. Says Kane, “We’re not trying to eliminate voice, voice is always going to be necessary in our society, we’re just trying to move all that to a single platform on a smartphone.”
organizations can easily collaborate externally with other teams while keeping internal communications private with tailored permissions and managed information sharing. This provides interoperability among disparate teams and organizations. With Intrepid Response, departments can securely manage multiple operations simultaneously without confusion.
