Chatham, NJ (PRWEB) June 04, 2012

Desktop Alert, Inc., (http://www.desktopalert.net) the provider of ‘less than one minute’ bi-directional network-centric emergency mass notification systems to military, government, healthcare, higher education, industrial and commercial organizations, today announced the U.S. Air Force has deployed the Desktop Alert Mass Notification platform at Maxwell Air Force Base to improve upon the current notification capabilities at the base.

Maxwell AFB is the headquarters of Air University (AU), a major component of Air Education and Training Command (AETC), and is the U.S. Air Force's center for Joint Professional Military Education (PME). The host wing for Maxwell-Gunter is the 42d Air Base Wing (42 ABW). The 908th Airlift Wing (908 AW) is a tenant activity and the only operational flying wing at Maxwell.

“The Maxwell Air Force Base selection is a great honor for our company. The Air Force continues to research the best and most affordable mass notification products. To that end, we assert Maxwell Air Force Base now has the fastest and most affordable mass notification platform available in the marketplace. And that makes total sense. Since when does the air force not buy the best and fastest jets? Effective alerting is all about speed. Latency-based alerts can be extremely dangerous and threaten the mission with highly inaccurate information,” said Howard Ryan, VP Research and Development Desktop Alert Inc.

“Our nationwide deployment across the Air National Guard Enterprise produced highly positive past performance reports now under review by numerous USAF MAJCOMS. Most notably, our products ability to send out alerts to all personnel in less than one minute has gained significant attention from our existing and prospective military customers,” Ryan added.

The company currently serves the following Air Force locations:

  •     Air Force Space Command HQ
  •     Air National Guard Nationwide (88 Bases)
  •     United States Air Force Academy
  •     721st Communications Group, Cheyenne Mountain
