Overview


Espre Technologies believes data security is paramount.

Today, everything is data, from the sensors controlling your city's power grid to the government's military operations. Soon, every train,  plane, and automobile will talk to everything else. However, the physical systems for data security are inherently surmountable and consistently breached, as evidenced in the nearly constant news of data theft, manipulation, and systemic spying. 


There will always be bad actors, clearly within military applications, but likely closer to home as our lives, devices, vehicles, homes, and everything else increasingly talk to each other.


At Espre, we see what is coming. And we're ready. For the most fundamental building block level, we've built a solution in silicon that will redefine and accelerate the pace of IoT innovation in both the military and commercial space.


*Rendering of NvisiLink chipsets. Images are computer generated demo versions. Product is currently under development.


The NvisiLink family of chipsets and sensors approach security differently. Data entering the network (any network, 5G, 4G, LTE, WiFi, etc.) becomes a chaotic waveform (white noise).


Data can enter in any form, at any level of encryption, and at any velocity, whether static or mobile. Inside the network, the waveforms move outside of the visible spectrum.


Data are reconstructed with near 100% efficacy at massive throughput on the receiving end.


Artificial intelligence-powered, real-time threat recognition and mitigation protects the entire transmission, the entire network, any network involved in the transmission, and any connected device.


(source)


This year, Espre will also position itself in the multibillion-dollar decentralized apps market. Espre will release a newly designed digital asset anti-theft anti-forgery system NFTNcrypt and a hardware noncustodial storage wallet. 


The patented technology secures unique NFTs by embedding an invisible digital watermark on the non-fungible token (NFT).


The portable hardware storage wallet allows the owner to keep their private keys (encrypted digital signatures used in digital asset trading) safe and hacker-proof.


Espre Technologies' proprietary technology is poised to be the security infrastructure needed as the world transitions into the decentralized internet - Web 3.0.

The Problem


Every second, 127 new devices connect to the Internet. Keeping devices connected and your data secured across trillions of networks that make up the web will be difficult.

By 2025, analysts expect 75 billion web-connected IoT devices in use. Security for these devices is only as strong as the weakest connection in the network. If a bad actor can access your smart lightbulb, he can access your network, computer, and anything else that connects to the network. Scaling (ability to wirelessly connect more devices) is complex as mutual interference increases with each new device, data throughput increases, and efficacy declines with a greater transmission. Further, network limitations restrict the number of transactions per millisecond to only 1.


The NvisiLink protocol increases the per millisecond transmission velocity by 10X, allowing users to connect up to eight devices. Its smart spatial allocation and waveform rerouting inherently increases network device and transmission capacity by a minimum factor of 10 for a static network, by an exponential factor in a mobile network.



Example: By Q3 2020, Risk Based Security revealed that 2,600+ data breaches resulted in the exposure of 36 billion personal records.

The Solution


The NvisiLink solution simultaneously addresses security, capacity, and data integrity.

*Images are stylized product illustrations. Product is currently under development.


Try pouring a glass of water into a moving river and then attempt to get the same water out of the middle of the river while snakes and piranhas (AI threat detection and real-time mitigation) circle. Impossible, right? This metaphor represents NvisiLink technology.


NvisiLink transforms regular, predictable transmission of 1's and 0's by devices into a massive network of digital chaotic transmissions. To outside security threats, the waveform is noise, indistinguishable from normal network noise. Segmenting the waveform from the noise isn't possible. It cannot be located in the noise, either as a unit or as an aberration to normal noise, as normal noise is, by definition, random and indistinguishable. It cannot be directionally located, creates no path, and leaves no trail. The signal is virtually invisible.


*Images are computer generated demo versions. Product is currently under development.

Our Traction


Espre has received investments from both the public and private sectors.

The US Department of Defense has provided more than $2.5 million to develop and test the NvisiLink platform and proof-of-concept for dual DoD and commercial use.


The investment allows Espre Technologies to design a System on a Chip (SoC).


We have a fully functional FPGA (Field Programmable Gate Array) platform from the DoD funding that we will scale down to a 28 nm ASIC (Application Specific Integrated Circuit) coupled with other Intellectual Property.


Scaling down affords significant enhancements in backend functionality, temperature control, performance, production cost, and code optimization.


In 2020, the DoD awarded research contracts to develop and modify various WiFi co-existence protocols for the base functionality of the FPGA.


Espre Technologies also secured private investment through Silicon Catalyst Angels and private investors with military and commercial interests. We're working with a Fortune 500 IoT Original Equipment Manufacturer (OEM) to translate our protocols to provide secure data transactions across their UWB (Ultra-Wide Band) chipset. This technology is the same 5nm chipset used across the iPhone 12 family of smartphones.


As a point of reference to the functional capabilities of Espre's technology platform, the ARM processor in our SoC design derives from the same technology family as the Apple ARM architecture; A14 SoC that contains a 16-core neural engine with the ability to process 11 trillion operations per second.


*Images are computer generated demo versions. Product is currently under development.


In addition, the government is exploring the use of Espre technology with UWB technology ($1.1 million in funding) to create a secure connection network for the augmented reality used in the Dismounted Soldier training system under development by Microsoft.


The Market


The Industrial Internet of Things (IIoT) is transforming how businesses build products and manage operations.

The Industrial IoT (IIoT) market size valuation was $115 billion in 2016. By 2023, analysts expect it to reach $197 billion by 2023, growing at a CAGR of 7.5%.


IIoT provides instant data transmission to measure, detect, and manage disparate business operations from automated manufacturing lines to Smart Grids and transportation systems.


Espre's NvisiLink commercial chipset and sensor solutions allow businesses to drive down costs while augmenting security, capacity, and data efficacy. Using the Espre protocol enables a company to reduce the number of nodes (routers) that currently support no more than +-100 connections. Each Espre node can maintain more than 1,000 concurrent connections based on its capability to transmit with nine other transmissions per single network access simultaneously.


Current technology allows only one transmission per single network access, with all others queuing before transmission. Data is lost, corrupted, and delayed. In a system reliant on precise timing, the result can be catastrophic.


Legacy solutions wire sensors and nodes/management systems at tremendous cost versus the Espre plug and play network protocol.


Further, current and legacy systems lack Espre's AI threat recognition and mitigation platform that identifies, restricts, and protects all network connections and connected devices in real-time.

Emerging Technologies | Agmas Protocol*

*Agmas product is currently in development and not yet fully available on the market.


According to the Washington Post, over 311,000 students have been casualties of school gun violence since 1999. Of the nearly 370 injured, shooters killed 185 children, educators, and others.


The latest attack in May on the elementary school in Uvalde, Texas, where 19 children and 2 teachers were gunned down, makes clear we need an early warning system alert for ambush attacks.


Like many of you -- as a parent and grandparent -- I cannot imagine the pain these families are experiencing. I had to ask myself what I could do to help prevent another tragedy like this? It occurred to me that I can adapt our technology to help save lives on the battlefield and in everyday communities. 


As the saying goes, "we have the technology." We can use it to make the world safer.


Agmas from Espre Technologies' NvisiLink creates a virtual shelter to evacuate students, educators, and staff safely before the assailant claims their first victim.


For over five years, forward-thinkers at the U.S. Department of Defense and private investors have trusted Espre Technologies to develop solutions for the battlefield and beyond, resulting in 30+ domestic and international patents.


We maintain the standard with our echolocation app that identifies the shooter and quickly directs those in the line of fire into a safe zone.


Acoustic Gun Monitoring Alert System


(Agmas) or Echo Positioning


1.) AI app on the phone recognizes the sound of a firearm discharging in the vicinity. AI app activates Agmas Protocol System.


2.) The Agmas Protocol is an intelligent and automated protective safety net to shield children during an active shooting in large gatherings such as schools, daycare, and amusement parks.


3.) The heart of the system is the NvisiLink unbreakable wireless meshing network, which transforms all the smartphones in the area into echo localization range/mapping system to identify safe zones for evacuation and pinpoint shooter(s) location(s).


Agmas Response Part 1


A.) The Agmas Protocol immediately switches all smartphones to the NvisiLink-enabled WiFi mesh network.


B.) Acoustic triggered Smartphones flood the area with uncoordinated the Safety on Software "SOS" beacons, containing their cellular provided network time at the time of each gunfire and their GPS location (if available) in the message body to NvisiLink enabled WiFi AP


C.) NvisiLink-enabled WiFi AP(s) can receive the flood of "SOS" beacons without collision. It can sort out each unique identifiable signature associated with each smartphone and cross-reference against a known database of users to which it has access locally. Two processes occur within the processor on the AP (Agmas Protocol)

  • The range, time, and GPS are used to create a digital map near the shooting and geolocation on the possible position(s) of the shooter(s)
  • Digital map information is stored in memory and updated as new beacons are received
  • This digital map and situational status is shared with all the NvisiLink AP within range and downloaded to the users associated with them


Agmas Response Part 2


A.) Any NvisiLink dongle paired with a smartphone receiving an "SOS" beacon shall process the "SOS" beacon

  • By recording the range, time, and shooter(s), estimate position(s) in the phone memory with a unique identifier for each detected signature
  • Subsequent "SOS" beacon to chronicle the history of the message information
  • This digital map and situational status is shared with all the NvisiLink AP within range and downloaded to the users associated with them
  • Respond to "SOS" if a specified amount of time has elapsed (1, 5, or 10 seconds) since the "SOS" last beacon transmission while not within a safety zone
  • While in the safety zone, monitoring of incoming "SOS" beacons from compromised areas are continually monitored to track the progress of the conflict


Agmas Part 3: Getting Help

  • NvisiLink enabled WiFi AP(s) to issue an "Amber" Alert type message to law enforcement agencies, first responders, news media, and parents of the children registered in its database via cellular messaging or email, relaying the latest real-time information on the situation for the active shooter.
  • NvisiLink mesh network will afford law enforcement agencies accessibility to teachers, counselors, or other authority figures to coordinate evacuation or hostage rescue.

The inclusive design of the Agmas protocol early warning system will incorporate assistive technology tools to protect the most vulnerable in dangerous situations.

Emerging Technologies | DeFi and dApp Industries


Espre Technologies, Inc. will join the multibillion-dollar Decentralized Applications (dApps) industry when it rolls out NFTNCrypt, the digital asset anti-theft anti-forgery system, and its hardware noncustodial storage wallet.


Espre Technologies' patented technology secures unique NFTs by embedding an invisible digital watermark on the non-fungible token (NFT).


The portable hardware storage wallet allows the owner to keep their private keys (encrypted digital signatures used in digital asset trading) safe and hacker-proof.


What is an NFT, and why does it need to be secure? NFT is an abbreviation for a Non-Fungible Token. NFT commerce is the fastest-growing market in the Decentralized Finance (DeFi) Industry. DeFi launched in 2009 when the bitcoin protocol allowed peer-to-peer digital currency trading.


In 2014, a duo created the first NFT, "Quantum," a video clip, and in a process called "minting," recorded it on the decentralized application (dApp) Ethereum blockchain. The owners added their information to the blockchain, a public digital ledger stored on millions of computers.


In June 2021. Sotheby's curated NFT sale of "Quantum" sold for $1.4 million. The ledger received a new record of ownership. Yet, the original owner's information remains. The digital ledger keeps a continuous record of ownerships. Except, in 2022, a Canadian company, Free Holdings Inc., sued Sotheby's and the NFT owners of record for allegedly selling a reproduction of the NFT "Quantum."


Loss of ownership is just one of the challenges NFT creators and collectors face when selling digital art.


In an article by Malwarebytes Labs, "NFTs explained: daylight robbery on the blockchain," other problems exist, such as:

  • "Duplication of the same artwork - same file; different owners"
  • "False chain of ownership - copyright or intellectual property infringement"
  • "The original file's initial reference point (URL / IPFS) vanishes. Especially if the startup that sold the NFTs folds."
  • "Hack online account steal NFT and resell - blockchain records new sales, not verification of a legitimate sale."


Espre Technologies, Inc.'s NFTNCrypt provides its solution as it takes position in dApp infrastructure security. NFTNCrypt's undetectable signature will prevent digital asset duplication and forgeries. It will also offer anti-theft protection for collectors and creators by embedding secret ciphers inside the NFT to prove ownership.


"By using AWS high-performance computing, before incurring minting fees, the web-based application allows the NFT creator to certify the digital asset through Espre's secure server or noncustodial hardware storage wallet. The collector stores their digital assets in the wallet for safekeeping," says Dr. Terry, CEO, Espre Technologies, Inc.


Once verified, the NFT creator transfers ownership to the collector. The collector then imprints the NFT with their unique signature. "A 90s hip hop artist said, "I can digitally watermark a bar of my song and mint and sell my own NFT."


Espre Technologies, Inc. will complete the engineering model of its crypto hardware wallet by late summer. NFT traders can expect the digital watermarking system and storage wallet in 2023.

We are back and bolder than ever!

Hello Espre Community,


If you were not aware, we launched our Reg CF approximately 5 PM EST on Friday, July 29, 2022.   We have been very busy since the close of the first campaign in December 2021.  Highlights of our activity include

  • Espre was competitively selected to participate in the Smart City Start-up Challenge (https://spring.smartcitiesconnect.org/) on April 4-7.
  • We sponsored a booth at the Special Forces Industry Conference (SOFIC) in Tampa, FL on May 16-19, 2022. 
  • We presented our progress on June 15, 2022 to over 150+ live and virtual attendees of the semiconductor community as part of the Spring '22 update for Silicon Catalyst Portfolio Companies 
  • Our ASIC is fully under development with a tentative tape out date in November 2022. Due to the supply chain shortages impacting the entire semiconductor industry, the reservation on a tape out shuttle is very difficult to secure.

The biggest news, however, is the announcement of our (A)coustic (G)un (M)onitoring (A)lert (S)ystem.  Initial feedback on this application for our technology has been extremely positive from the civilian community and first responder/law enforcement community.  We summarize the technology above.  There is more to share on Agmas during the coming weeks. 

-Dr. John Terry, CEO, Espre Technologies
