Chatham NJ May 13, 2016 - Desktop Alert Inc., the leader in net-centric alerting systems and interoperable emergency communication systems, today announced a contract award from the United States Coast Guard to protect, alert, and inform 3,800 personnel in the National Capitol Region.
As part of the Joint Force Headquarters National Capital Region, these Coast Guard personnel are responsible for homeland defense, defense support to civil authorities (DSCA), and incident management in the National Capital Region.
“It is an honor to be selected by the Coast Guard and a testament to the technology and capabilities Desktop Alert offers our customers” said Chris Brown, Desktop Alert’s Vice President for Defense Operations. “Our interoperable communication and net-centric alerting platform provides unmatched versatility and value to organizations of all size.”
Benefiting the Coast Guard is the proven Desktop Alert Transition Methodology and out-of-the-box interoperability. This ensures a seamless transition from their legacy system to the Total Alert system with no technical risk or interruptions in alerting and notification. It also delivers interoperability with other alerting systems and organizations out-of-the-box. The Coast Guard will now have a customizable, real-time ability to connect with other organizations such as USNORTHCOM, The National Guard and other agencies for alerting and notification without subscribing to any additional services or utilizing unnecessary and risky proprietary cloud services.
