LONDON, July 1, 2011 /PRNewswire/ --
Northrop Grumman Corporation (NYSE: NOC) is participating in the Brunei International Defence Exhibition (BRIDEX) where it will highlight its capabilities as a leading systems integrator in Command, Control, Communications, Computers, Intelligence, Surveillance and Reconnaissance (C4ISR), security and resilience technology, unmanned ground systems and cyber security.
BRIDEX is one of the premier defence and security events in South East Asia and takes place from 6-9 July 2011 at the BRIDEX International Conference Centre, Jerudong, Negara Brunei Darussalam. The Northrop Grumman exhibit is at location W-07.
"Northrop Grumman has leading-edge capabilities in national security solutions from tactical command and control systems, and situational awareness for defence and civil security applications, to the management of hazardous incidents and unmanned systems. This is matched by U.K.-based expertise, specialist facilities and a proven track record of delivery to customers around the world," said Paul Davison vice president and managing director Northrop Grumman Information Systems Europe. "We look forward to this opportunity to profile a range of the company's products and systems that can help serve the needs of the tri-services of the Royal Brunei Armed Forces, the Royal Brunei Police Force and other government enforcement agencies as well as the National Disaster Management Centre."
The Northrop Grumman exhibit will feature the company's tactical command and control systems, Integrated Tactical Command and Control Services (I-TaCCS) and Integrated Joint Operational Command and Control Services (I-JOCCS). The core software component of I-TaCCS is used around the world and is in service in more than 40 countries with 100,000 users. Presentations will be available on these systems.
Northrop Grumman UK is providing the JOC C4ISR capability for the Royal Brunei Armed Forces (RBAF). This includes the supply of a C4ISR headquarters system and a deployable JOC together with training and in-country support.
Highlighted will be Northrop Grumman's capabilities in cyber security and the federated cyber security test range and its application for resilience testing of large scale networks, cyber diagnostics and cyber team training. In October 2010, Northrop Grumman opened the U.K.'s only commercially available federated cyber security test range at its Fareham, U.K. facility. Northrop Grumman will discuss cyber warfare at the BRIDEX Conference on 5 July and will hold a series of cyber security familiarisation seminars during the show. These will take place from 1000-1200 on Wednesday 6 through Friday 8 July at the Jerudong Polo Club.
The exhibit will feature the company's new man-portable capability for the monitoring of Chemical Biological Radiological and Nuclear (CBRN) incidents and the collection and handling of related data. The Integrated Tactical Rapid Assessment of CBRN Environments (I-TRACE) system facilitates decision support and enhances situational awareness and information sharing among emergency response organizations. Analysed data is provided to users through a web portal. I-TRACE requires no specialist vehicle installation and can be rapidly deployed using existing "blue light" emergency services vehicles.
Northrop Grumman's biometric data capture and information search capability for rapid identity management will also be on display. BioTRAC is an electronic mobile scanning system integrated with a ruggedized laptop computer which enables fingerprint, face and iris image capture together with rapid biometric matching capabilities. Captured biometric information can be sent to local policing databases as well as national and international repositories.
The Wheelbarrow Mk 9 large unmanned ground vehicle will also be on display. The Wheelbarrow Mk 9 is the enhanced version of Northrop Grumman's industry-leading Wheelbarrow vehicle for the remote handling of hazardous threats including bomb disposal, tactical and surveillance operations. Designed, developed and manufactured in the U.K. by Northrop Grumman at its facility in Coventry, the Mk9 vehicle includes a range of advanced technology and performance features for civil and public security applications.
Northrop Grumman Sperry Marine's capabilities in coastal surveillance and port security will be highlighted including the Maritime Domain Awareness (MDA) system, the Vessel Traffic System (VTS) and Vessel Traffic Monitoring and Information System (VTMIS). Sperry Marine has deployed its VTMIS and port management and security systems in some of the world's busiest sea lanes and seaports.
