Chief Foreman also demonstrated the worlds first LiFi enabled tablet. pureLiFi partnered with Getac to enable the UX10 tablet with LiFi, combining Kitefin capability with Getac’s powerful and fully rugged tablet, ready to deploy in both the office and tactical edge alike.

This demonstration comes off the back of multimillion pound deal with the US Army that enabled the world first large-scale deployment of LiFi in the form of the Kitefin System.

Kitefin if the first mission deployable LiFi system for defence. Kitefin has near-zero EM signature, is fully cyber secure, virtually interference-free, and is radio frequency free meaning there is a very low probability of detection or interception. Kitefin is also rapidly deployable saving missions time and money. 



LiFi being uniquely more secure than radio technology such as Wi-Fi or cellular, the US ARMY Europe are able to deploy wireless communications where previously not possible and further secure existing wireless solutions.
