FT. LAUDERDALE, Fla., Aug. 18, 2008 -- Northrop Grumman Corporation (NYSE:NOC) will highlight information technology (IT) and communications solutions for the defense industry this week at LandWarNet, August 19-21, at the Greater Ft. Lauderdale/Broward County Convention Center.
At booth 407 in the conference exhibit hall, Northrop Grumman will feature a demonstration of the Defense Integrated Military Human Resources System (DIMHRS), which will transform the delivery of personnel and pay services within the U.S. Department of Defense.
DIMHRS will provide service members with a single, comprehensive human resources record and will allow service members to update personnel information via self-service functionality. DIMHRS will go live for the U.S. Army in the first quarter of 2009, and will be implemented incrementally across the rest of the Defense Department.
In addition to the DIMHRS demonstration, Northrop Grumman will display its warfighting solutions including:
* Army Knowledge Online/Defense Knowledge Online (AKO/DKO): AKO/DKO is an online portal that empowers knowledge dominance, ensures synchronization of resources, and aggressively enables situational awareness and operational security throughout the Defense Department community. In a secure environment designed to improve information sharing, AKO/DKO is providing net-centric enterprise services, including online collaboration (Web conferencing, instant messaging and chat), a people directory through its white pages, and improved search capabilities. * AKO/DKO service-orientated architecture (SOA) dashboard: Consolidates real-time portal, application, network, and help-desk performance data. AKO/DKO SOA dashboard uses enterprise service bus technology to transport information, and provide timely, enterprise-wide, decision-making information to key AKO/DKO stakeholders. * Secure broadband wireless data and voice communications: Enables situational awareness supporting military base security, infrastructure protection, geospatial information management, and mobile asset management. * Comprehensive vulnerability lifecycle management system (VLMS): Northrop Grumman is the prime contractor leading the development, integration, and deployment of a comprehensive vulnerability management system for the U.S. Air Force.
