LONDON, April 17 /PRNewswire/ --
Northrop Grumman Corporation (NYSE: NOC) will highlight its integrated secure broadband wireless, and public safety national security capabilities at the British Association of Public Safety Communications Officers (BAPCO) annual conference and exhibition to be held at 21-23 April 2009 at the Business Design Centre, Islington, London.
Northrop Grumman will be exhibiting jointly with IPWireless, a pioneer in developing mobile broadband network infrastructure solutions, and will be located at stand 250. Tom Afferton, director of Wireless Engineering for Northrop Grumman's Information Systems sector, will deliver a conference paper at BAPCO entitled, Resilient Data Applications for Public Safety: an Update from the New York City Wireless Programme and the Sussex Police Project. This will take place at 12:15 on Wednesday 22 April in the conference hall.
Our broad range of capabilities in secure broadband wireless networks and our expertise in complex systems integration puts Northrop Grumman at the forefront of national security and public safety communications, said Paul Davison, managing director of Northrop Grumman's Information Systems sector in Europe. The high speed wireless capability, airport security solution and unmanned ground vehicle technology we have on display demonstrates the tangible benefits that are available now to the emergency services and front line users.
Northrop Grumman will demonstrate the operational benefits of delivering secure mobile broadband data to emergency services and front line policing based on its New York City's public safety wireless broadband network and the successful UK trial of broadband mobile data capability held in collaboration with Sussex Police and the National Policing Improvement Agency (NPIA).
Live streaming video from remote and local cameras will be transmitted over a wireless high speed data path to mobile devices including tablet PCs. The demonstration will include Northrop Grumman's Caliber unmanned ground vehicle system with a manipulator-arm mounted camera, as well as the significantly improved throughput of the TD/CDMA technology and greater integration of this technology into mobile devices.
The company's integrated airport security solution will also be featured with a demonstration based on the use of TouchTable, a projection display with a touch-sensitive screen, as a collaborative environment. In addition, the company's critical incident response system (CIRS) will be available for viewing. CIRS provides improved collaboration and visualization to enable incident commanders to plan, engage and manage quickly and intuitively emergency situations and complex events.
