Chatham, NJ (PRWEB) November 20, 2013
Desktop Alert Inc. today announced that it successfully participated in a multi-year certification program process managed by Science Applications International Corporation ® (SAIC) for the Emergency Management Modernization Program (DA G3 EM2P). Desktop Alert’s Total Alert System is now certified for the DA G3 EM2P program for emergency mass warning notification systems across the Army enterprise, capable of covering over 2 million active/civilian personnel and their families.
Desktop Alert Inc’s Mass Warning Notification System (MWNS) is now owned via a perpetual mass warning notification license to U.S. Army locations in all 54 states and territories and locations in Europe and Afghanistan. The company is the current enterprise level MWNS at FEMA HQ, Northern Command HQ, NORAD HQ, National Guard and Air National Guard Enterprise and most U.S. Army locations worldwide.
Desktop Alert, provider of the HQ Federal Emergency Management Agency (FEMA) Enterprise Level ip-based MWNS, is an active participant in the IPAWS-OPEN Developers Program and maintains a Memorandum of Agreement (MOA) with the FEMA for the purpose of gaining access to the IPAWS-OPEN Test Environment.
“We are honored to be both approved and certified in the SAIC Emergency Management Modernization Program certification process. This accomplishment provides the government best value alternatives for fielding affordable proven mass warning notification systems in the best interest of the government. As such, our company has experienced a significant groundswell of support across the U.S. Army in 2013 for the continuation and expanded usage of the Desktop Alert MWNS,” said Howard Ryan, Desktop Alert Inc.
Desktop Alert is the de-facto provider of IP-based MWNS to the U.S. Army nationwide. Desktop Alert provides yearly support and maintenance contracts for less than $10,000.00 a year at locations such as Fort Hood, Fort Gordon, Fort Campbell, Fort Leavenworth, USMA and Fort Leonard Wood. “There is no longer the requirement for highly unaffordable support and maintenance contracts as experienced by other U.S. Army locations not equipped with our solution,” added Ryan.
Desktop Alert currently provides numerous U.S. Army locations nationwide with a full service mass notification capability. The United States Military Academy at West Point procured the Desktop Alert mass warning notification system for text messaging alerts, telephone alerts, email alerts, desktop alerts, as well as, giant voice and public address alerts.
“Our company engineered and installed the integrated giant voice system including speakers and poles implemented throughout the very sensitive West Point historical environment. Further, we utilized solar panels to power the speakers saving West Point the huge costs associated with chopping up streets and running electrical provisioning. West Point is without question the new standard for mass notification in the U.S. Army,” said John Monville, President Desktop Alert Inc.
