Theft-Aware Android Security App

I work on a program that supports a wide range of platforms, including Android. Android support is new and just leaving beta, but Android phone and tablet sized devices are the future for many of our customers. It would be overreaching for us to recommend specific security apps to our Android customers, but we need to be aware of advances in the field. I use a different security solution (Lookout), but this looks very promising. For military systems in particular, there needs to be a way to locate a lost device and deactivate or render inoperable a device that is lost or falls into enemy hands during a conflict. This app shows there are already solutions adaptable to meet this requirement.
