COLORADO SPRINGS, Colo., Oct. 21, 2005 (PRIMEZONE) -- Northrop Grumman Corporation (NYSE:NOC) will highlight its homeland security and defense-planning capabilities this week at the Homeland Defense Symposium.
The exposition will be held Oct. 24-27 at the Broadmoor Hotel, Colorado Springs, Colo.
Northrop Grumman provides a complete range of homeland security solutions that provide interoperability, reliability and availability to defense, intelligence and public-safety agencies worldwide.
The company will demonstrate the Cyber Warfare Integration Network (CWIN) maritime-defense program. The CWIN program is a collaborative network of predictive battleground-awareness, precision-targeting and engagement tools that simulate live homeland security and homeland defense scenarios and events. The CWIN can bring a wide variety of information resources together to provide military officials with a more complete picture of a threat environment.
Northrop Grumman's mission impact management (MIM) solution provides performance and risk-impact assessments of network-centric disruptions to operational missions. Using the company's automated Mission Impact of Network Disruptions (a-MIND) technology, coupled with a range of engineering services, MIM assesses the impact of network disruptions and reports them in operational terminology.
The company will also display its comprehensive security suite of infrastructure-protection integration services that can help minimize exposure to security threats and maximize available resources. Northrop Grumman's video-surveillance technology, AlertVideo, extracts valuable behavior and event information from existing surveillance systems and provides instantaneous visual and audible alerts. The technology identifies potential threats and issues real-time alerts that highlight when, where and what needs immediate attention. The incident alerting and assessment system integrates multiple security systems into a consolidated monitoring workstation for situation assessment, alarm management and dispatch command-and-control.
