Ness Technologies Wins Multi-Million Dollar Defense Contract With Latin American Country
HACKENSACK, New Jersey, June 23 /PRNewswire-FirstCall/ -- Ness Technologies, Inc. (NASDAQ:NSTC), a global provider of IT services and solutions, today announced a multi-million dollar contract to provide its NessControl command and control system to a major Latin American government. NessControl will be implemented for the country's special forces.
NessControl is a comprehensive command and control system for mobile tactical units. It comprises an advanced, independent and fully redundant communications infrastructure which enables the real-time collection, dissemination and analysis of data among all units linked to the system. Featuring state-of-the-art imaging capabilities, the highly versatile, integrated system handles a wide range of information, including live video, photographs, maps, intelligence aids, text and messages, alarms, and GIS data - all in real time.
NessControl will support the needs of the special forces in a wide range of missions, including counter-terrorism, search and rescue, reconnaissance and SWAT missions. It will also be used to transfer data and video from forces in the field to HQ and operations rooms, using various communications systems.
"We are very pleased to have won this strategically significant deployment in Latin America," said Michael Zinderman, President, Ness Technologies & Systems Group (TSG). "NessControl's ability to supply reliable and precise information to special forces officers and field personnel in real time enhances the mission performance of any defense and homeland security organization. NessControl is a field-proven system deployed by leading defense and counter-terror organizations. This marks the eleventh country in which we have deployed Ness' defense and homeland security systems, across five continents."
NessControl provides real-time viewing of force positions and movements, leading to increased coordination among neighboring forces. The system supports a wide variety of data transmission modes, such as tactical HF/VHF/UHF radio, wireless LAN/WAN, satellite, cellular and Ethernet - and is designed to provide the optimal mode for both static and mobile stations.
NessControl is deployed on headquarters computers, in-vehicle computers and soldier-mounted or soldier-carried devices. The system is based on Ness Technologies' Map Display System (NTMDS), a powerful mapping and graphic tool kit that enables real-time control and response. It includes a navigation and orientation module, enabling fast and accurate positioning (using GPS), route planning, route display and an auto centered moving map.
During emergency conditions, when every second is critical, NessControl enables its users, military and special forces personnel, to take immediate control of a situation. It rapidly assesses the distance between the scene and initial responders, including the length of time it will take them to arrive and the most expeditious route. With this information, commanders can quickly create action plans, and make better, more informed decisions, adapting to the current situation.
