LAS VEGAS, Aug. 13, 2009 -- Northrop Grumman Corporation (NYSE:NOC) will present its public-safety solutions for first responders next week at the Association of Public-Safety Communications Officials 75th Annual Conference and Exposition.
The conference and exposition will be held August 16-19 at the Las Vegas Convention Center.
"Our experience as a public safety systems integrator, providing CAD systems, designing and deploying a broad range of wireless networks, implementing video surveillance systems and integrating other emerging technologies puts Northrop Grumman at the forefront of public safety transformations," said Gino Menchini, director of state and local accounts for Northrop Grumman's Information Systems sector.
In the conference exhibit hall at booth 936, Northrop Grumman will showcase its Law Enforcement Information Exchange (LInX) solution used by the U.S. Navy. As the prime contractor, Northrop Grumman developed the information sharing system for criminal investigators in several jurisdictions across the country. LInX provides full cycle information sharing services to 539 federal, state, county and local agencies with 28,000 users in 10 regions including California; Gulf Coast, Texas; Hampton Roads, Va.; Hawaii; metropolitan Washington, D.C. area; Washington, Alaska and Idaho; New Mexico; South Carolina; Florida and Georgia; and the U.S. Department of Defense Exchange.
The company will also demonstrate capabilities of implementing wireless networks; similar to what it is has deployed in New York City. The display will feature command-and-control software using video for integrated situation awareness and situation management, as well as a broadband wireless network that provides high speed data, video and voice communications for public safety and government agencies.
Northrop Grumman will highlight its CommandPoint Computer Aided Dispatch system that enables communications center personnel to efficiently handle calls and information, allowing them to make informed decisions and meet the demands of law enforcement, fire and emergency medical services.
For law enforcement agencies, Northrop Grumman's CommandPoint Automated Field Reporting product allows police officers to create reports in the field regardless of whether they are connected to a wireless network. This product will be displayed, along with the CommandPoint Records Management System, which stores the data inputted from the law enforcement officer and provides the ability to customize and pre-define records- management data-entry screens.
