BALTIMORE, Aug. 6, 2007 (PRIME NEWSWIRE) -- Northrop Grumman Corporation (NYSE:NOC) will present its public-safety solutions for first responders this week at the Association of Public-Safety Communications Officials -- International 73rd Annual Conference and Exposition.

The exposition is ongoing Aug. 5-9 at the Baltimore Convention Center with the Northrop Grumman exhibit located at booth 1100.

Northrop Grumman's wireless capabilities allow public safety and other government agencies to specifically tailor their needs with reliable wireless communications. The Next Generation 9-1-1 system is among the wireless capabilities that will be displayed at this year's conference. This system combines advanced interoperability with a network that allows first-responders to not only respond quickly to an emergency, but also arrive prepared with information they need to do their job.
