Cytta Corp (OTC: CYCA) brings technology from military to enterprise.

Their IGAN (Incident Global Area Network) seamlessly streams all relevant video and audio during emergency situations, while allowing real time video and audio communication among all participating parties. This creates real-time interconnected situational awareness for police, firefighters, first responders, and their command centers.
CYCA products work in size, weight, and power-constrained (SWaP) operating environments and evolved through use in the military, meeting the need to stream multiple HD, 4K and 4K+ video feeds with ultra-low latency, bandwidth, and power consumption and disseminate through a command center to multiple parties. CYCA is taking this streaming, storage, and transfer technology to enterprises that would like to stream and disseminate more high-quality videos with fewer resources.
CYCA manufactures all of its products in the USA. Their team of specialists has been put together to productize and distribute this technology across multiple enterprise use cases. CYCA management is integrating this technology into operations that have the need to send and store more high-quality videos and images with fewer resources.
- CYCA Police Force Partnering Development Program Successfully Deployed; Real-Time IGAN Technology Utilized in Police Operations
On February 7th the CYCA Police Force Partnering Development (PFPD) Program was successfully deployed in two recent active engagements and demonstrated its intervention and apprehension support capabilities. This innovative program places CYCA IGAN technology in the hands of Police Departments during real policing operations. CYCA representatives provided real time technical support during these operations. Partnering in this manner provides immediate feedback, real-time information exchange and technical enhancements that create safer outcomes during tense policing events.
CYCA has been utilizing the data, insights and information generated to develop and integrate them into a more comprehensive and advanced IGAN Fusion system. It is anticipated that these initial deployments will result in similar department wide deployments with other major police forces nationally as the new developments are completed and deployed.
CYCA products uniquely synthesize real-time video data, human insights and communication information generated during such events using their advanced IGAN Fusion system. IGAN Fusion seamlessly streams all relevant video and audio from the intervention area into a mobile app interface that all police personnel share in real-time. It gives everyone eyes-on-the-situation at hand and surrounding areas while simultaneously allowing different video captures and audio to be mixed and shared with officers and other police personnel both actively on the ground and in the command post.

- Development of SUPR TAK Video Streaming Solution for Integration into TAK – Tactical Assault Kit/Team Awareness Kit Well Underway
On December 20th CYCA announced the development program of their SUPR TAK full HD video streaming solution for the $12.78 Billion TAK/ATAK market. TAK is the Tactical Assault Kit for the military, the Team Awareness Kit for civilian applications, and ATAK (Android Tactical Assault Kit) when integrated into the U.S. and NATO’s preeminent battlefield management application. A Beta launch is expected in Q2 of 2022.
The current CYCA TAK management application system that is utilized in 15 Department of Defense (“DOD”) programs and has a user base of over 380,000, does not sustain multiple, reliable full motion video (FMV) from live streaming assets and cameras in higher resolutions. CYCA will be able to solve the lack of quality video streaming that TAK faces with its SUPR video streaming by integrating the CYCA proprietary SUPR streaming technology. Beneficiaries of CYCA full resolution streaming capabilities and technology span federal, state, and local government departments as well as in the recreational environment with users that hike, research, and explore our world through various means. With more state and local agencies coming onboard, this will continue to expand in the government level sectors.
The Soldier System Market was valued at USD $12.78 billion in 2021 and is projected to reach USD $14.14 billion by 2023 according to ‘Soldier System Market, Industry Analysis and Market Forecast to 2023′.
CYCA was asked to develop the SUPR TAK, for the TAK/ATAK ecosystem, by various military partners like UK SOF, US Air Force, US National Guard, SOCOM, Border and Customs, and other Mil Spec users. By integrating CYCA patented SUPR technology capabilities, TAK will now be capable of delivering full resolution streaming over low-bandwidth with low-latency. All users will be able to utilize this exclusive solution that CYCA alone can provide
This is yet another unique and significant step forward for a Company already trusted by major players in the military, first responders and industry. This new SUPR TAK initiative will enhance integration of CYCA proprietary technology and is in response to customer requirements. CYCA technology applications make a critical difference to the safety and operational effectiveness of personnel in the defense, first responder and security industries.

The global SaaS market is expected to grow from $225.6 billion in 2020 to $272.49 billion this year. The growth is mainly due to companies like CYCA evolving their product portfolio to better service the customer demands and provide agile solutions with minimal onboarding time and expense. It is anticipated that this trend will continue, with the market expected to reach $436.9 billion by 2025.
