Desktop Alert's Network-centric Notification System Procured to Protect U.S. Troops and Personnel.

Desktop Alert, Inc., the leader in network-centric emergency notification systems being purchased by the U.S. Army, today announced Desktop Alert Inc. has been procured for usage at Fort Campbell, Kentucky to bolster force protection. Fort Campbell is using Desktop Alert Inc. to provide emergency alerting to upwards of 20,000 personnel, offering critical time sensitive alerts and information to all personnel.

Fort Campbell is a United States Army installation located between Hopkinsville, Kentucky, and Clarksville, Tennessee, and is home to the 101st Airborne Division. Changes to the 101st Airborne are intended to make the Army more capable to deal with today's threats. The post is expecting another 2,000 troops, with the addition of another brigade, bringing the total active-duty population of Fort Campbell to around 28,000.

The alerts reliably notify targeted recipients with a myriad of alerting capabilities which include but are not limited to: alert auditing (accountability), video surveillance delivery to any desktop, audible alerts, pre-defined threat matrix templates, interactive alert capability for data collection, approved DOD instant messaging extensibility and more. The companies' offerings require no new devices be introduced to the network. Desktop Alert is a pure ISP/software solution which installs from a CD in hours.

Within seconds a Command Centers authorized publisher of the alert can issue a scenario-based alert or a unique alert definition providing the capability to respond to unique events with specific requirements. The Desktop Alert interface provides substantial on-the-fly custom alert creativity with its HTML based WYSIWYG editor. There are no limits to the amount of templates which may be created over and above the pre-defined threat matrix templates stocked with the notification platform.

Desktop Alert Inc. was selected due to its state-of-the-art feature set, competitive price points and its rapid deployment capability. The U.S. Army approved the company's software as Networthy February 21st, 2008. Desktop Alert is listed on the Army Knowledge Online (AKO).

"The selection of Desktop Alert by Fort Campbell is truly an honor and representative of Desktop Alert's continued increase of market share within the United States Army. The Desktop Alert Networthiness Certification is currently the only Net-Centric alert-to-desktop technology without restrictions which proved to be a strong factor in the decision making process. By introducing a Enterprise Class Solution which does not introduce new devices to the network insures minimal disruption to the network during and after installation. The future looks bright for our company and the hard work and determination is paying off. We will continue to work hard for America's armed forces by delivering high quality affordable Net-Centric mass notification. At the end of the day, it's all about happy customers," said Howard Ryan, Founder and CEO of Desktop Alert Inc.
