LONDON, March 15, 2010 /PRNewswire/ -- Northrop Grumman Corporation will be participating in the Home Office Scientific Development Branch (HOSDB) exhibition where it will highlight its range of integrated global security capabilities including critical infrastructure protection, command and control, surveillance and intelligence, emergency services interoperability, counter terrorism and border security.

The HOSDB exhibition is the UK's only secure event for displaying the latest security equipment for law enforcement and public security. It focuses on the four Home Office key business areas: crime and policing, security and counter terrorism, identity management, and border security. The event takes place from 16-18 March at FIVE, Farnborough.

Northrop Grumman has a broad range of experience in national security solutions from strategic and tactical command and control systems, to situational awareness for defence and civil security applications, and unmanned ground systems. This is matched by UK-based expertise, specialist facilities and a proven track record of delivery to customers in the UK and around the world, said Sir Nigel Essenhigh, chief executive for Northrop Grumman's Information Systems sector in Europe. The demonstrations and presentations on our exhibit stand at HOSDB highlight Northrop Grumman's world class knowledge and capabilities in national security and resilience.

Northrop Grumman UK will showcase a cross-section of its integrated security solutions with equipment, displays and presentations of key technologies.

Using its Critical Incident Response System (CIRS), Northrop Grumman will demonstrate its ability to integrate seamlessly a variety of national security solutions into a common situational awareness display for crisis management. CIRS combines the best hardware and software allowing commanders to plan quickly and intuitively, engage and manage emergency situations and complex events. The system's TouchTable(TM) enables group collaboration and discovery at the local site, and remote information sharing over IP to any other TouchTable(TM) or IP enabled device. This ensures that all emergency services and first responders are working against the same information.

Featured also will be Northrop Grumman's leading capability in tactical command and control systems including the software application Command and Control for the PC (C2PC). In service in more than 40 countries with 100,000 users, C2PC provides a common tactical picture for operational command and control, improving situational awareness and enhancing operational and tactical decision making. C2PC provides the user interface/core functionality for many operations command systems around the world including NATO's Maritime Command Control System (MCCIS), the UK MoD's Joint Operations Command System (JOCS) and Royal Navy Command Support System (RNCSS).

Presentations will be available showing surveillance and intelligence solutions based on the core capabilities provided by the Integrated Joint Operational Command and Control system (I-JOCCS), an operational and tactical level static and mobile headquarters C4I solution, and Integrated Tactical Command and Control system (I-TaCCS) a land, sea and air and dismounted soldier-based C4I solution.

Unmanned ground systems on display for hazardous operations will be Wheelbarrow Mk 9, Caliber T5 and Eye-Drive robots for remote handling of hazardous threats, tactical and surveillance operations. EyeDrive is an observation and surveillance remote-controlled mini-robot that provides continuous real-time 360-degree audio and video surveillance.

Northrop Grumman's capabilities in critical infrastructure, force protection and border security will also be featured. Systems highlighted will be Advanced Security and Integrated Systems Technology (ASIST) and the Harbour and Coastal Security (HCS) system.

ASIST, deployed at more than 100 sites worldwide, provides enhanced security situational awareness through the correlation of multiple off-the-shelf sensors and cameras. It extends detection well beyond the perimeter and can be integrated with existing systems to create a layered approach to security. HCS integrates off-the-shelf computers, communications, and sensors with sensor processing to provide a flexible, standards-based command and control system.
