Information Sharing Capabilities for Federal, State and Local
Customers Who Protect Our Nation
MCLEAN, Va., July 30, 2012 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Northrop Grumman
Corporation (NYSE:NOC) announced today that it has expanded its
membership in the IJIS Institute, a nonprofit organization focused on
improving critical information sharing for those who provide public
safety and administer justice in our communities.
"We actively support public safety and law enforcement programs with
industry-leading solutions in cybersecurity, situational awareness,
command and control, mission-critical communications and infrastructure
services," said Ed Sturms, vice president, civil cyber and security,
Northrop Grumman Information Systems. "Our support for the IJIS helps
us expand our contributions to civil law enforcement and public safety
programs and furthers the institute's mission to unite the private and
public sectors for improving mission-critical information sharing."
Northrop Grumman provides cybersecurity solutions and critical network
operations for the U.S. Department of Homeland Security; command and
control systems for police, fire and emergency services, and
mission-critical network and IT services to city, county and state
government agencies. In addition, it provides seamless wireless
communications to the Navy's first responders to securely exchange
information with local law enforcement agencies across the country and
data exchange programs for the Department of Justice, FBI and other
organizations. The company also supports New York City with
mission-critical communications for a wide array of public service and
public safety applications.
"Northrop Grumman has a rich history of delivering public safety
technology solutions to large jurisdictions worldwide," said Steve
Ambrosini, IJIS Institute executive director. "We are excited about the
prospects of Northrop Grumman's enhanced role as a sustaining member
and helping to further advance national information sharing."
One of the critical, public safety information sharing programs
supported by Northrop Grumman is the Law Enforcement Information
Exchange (LInX) crime and incident reporting and analytical system.
Earlier this year, LInX received an award from the Montgomery County
Chamber of Commerce for its ability to enable public safety personnel
to integrate disparate systems and create an easily accessible archive
to update and mine data.
