Navy awards Northrop a contract for emergency response work

The Navy has awarded a two-year, $25.6 million contract to Northrop Grumman Corp. to implement emergency response management systems for Navy first responders at shore locations in the continental United States.

Under the contract, Northrop Grumman Information Technology of McLean, Va., will automate dispatch operations and improve incident response times by providing material to develop, deploy and maintain the Navy Emergency Response Management System.

The company's CommandPoint public safety applications solution will be the foundation of the system. These applications will include computer-aided dispatch, a mobile application for communications between the command center and field units, a mapping application for real-time command-and-control situations and a law enforcement records system.

Northrop Grumman's partners are GE Security, GETAC Inc., Native Hawaiian Veterans LLC, Hewlett-Packard Co., Environmental Systems Research Institute Inc., Security Information Systems and G/I/S Inc.
