The Winner | Emergency Crypto Communications – CryptoAudioSMS
When the Internet and GSM fail this app will allow anyone to exchange encrypted data over ANY legacy analogue radio with no additional hardware needed!
Manufacturers, military and civilian defence implement their different communication standards (DMR, TETRA, dPMR, NXDN etc.) but when there is a crisis and the need for secure information exchange they fail to cooperate as these are simply incompatible. The security of information exchange becomes an unstable element during a critical situation. What any policeman, solider, ambulance and truck driver will have access to is a simple analogue radio. Such a radio along with the simplest of the android device (which is cut of from the world) will enable anyone to send vital information in encrypted form over standard analogue channels. No connectors or cables between radio and android devices are needed for this solution. The idea is that any radio operator (emergency services, military, civilian defence, and volunteers) should be able to protect the content of their situational reports and other mission-critical data while sending over the air with ANY equipment. When the Internet and GSM will fail this app will allow anyone to exchange encrypted data over ANY legacy analog radio with no additional hardware needed!
