Defense contractor, public safety provider and app developer, Defense Trading Solutions, has created the first world’s first terror alert smartphone app.
The app provides users one place where they can obtain relevant, real-time information and a clear understanding of what’s taking place around them during a terrorist attack, and is scheduled for release worldwide in March 2017.
TerrorMate alerts users to both possible and actual terror attacks, plus provides information on how to stay safe in the affected area.
The app sends out real-time advisories and intelligence in short format updating the user on events as they happen.

It utilizes the users’ geolocation to deliver information tailored to each users’ location, with alerts appearing within five minutes of an attack or alert.
Users are able to upload real-time media of the attack or suspicious activity and send anonymous tips as well as share information with their friends and family with the TerrorMate trusted contacts feature.
Various mobile carriers have expressed interest in having their users get primary access to the app.
