Tesseract Alert Route Lighting System

A new military contract showcases Tesseract Ventures’ versatility and sophistication in the national security tech space, said John Boucard, touting the Overland Park-based company’s cutting-edge Alert Route Lighting System planned for MacDill Air Force Base in Tampa.

“Tesseract continues its focused mission to revolutionize the way people live, work, and play by developing state-of-the-art technologies and systems that enhance safety, connectivity, and efficiency,” said Boucard, founder and CEO of Tesseract Ventures, which creates solutions across industries using robots, smart spaces, wearables, and radically connected platforms.

Tesseract did not release financial details of the contract.

The new Alert Route Lighting System from Tesseract is designed to meet the demands of any military base requiring an alert route or upgrading its existing system to surpass established standards, Boucard said.

Built on state-of-the-art data stream technologies, LTE M1, the system is engineered to modernize connectivity across an entire military installation, command region, or global operations ensuring the rapid response of today’s warfighters.

It is designed for easy installation, with compatibility with existing light posts or new posts provided by Tesseract. No power connection is needed thanks to the solar charging system and installed battery.

The innovative design enables the signage to be placed on existing or newly installed streetlights or posts throughout a military installation — with each module in the system displaying either a standardized static image sign, utilizing Department of Transportation reflective colors and high-intensity flashing light modules, or Tesseract’s soon-to-be-released digital sign modules, capable of displaying any number of customized signs, including “Active Shooter,” tornado evacuation routes, and custom displays as selected by commanding officers.
