TEL AVIV, Israel, November 5, 2012 /PRNewswire/ --
Ness Technologies, a global provider of information technology services and solutions, announced today that it will introduce Kingdom, a command and control system for homeland security forces, at the Israel HLS 2012 international conference on homeland security on November 11-14, 2012 in Tel Aviv, Israel.
The Kingdom system, already in operational use, is designed to manage missions assigned to the homeland tactical forces, including chemical weapon detection and identification teams, search and rescue teams, and security and medical teams. The system helps to allocate and assign personnel, disseminate reports from the field and create a "situation picture" of the forces' performance in real time. The system is designed for war time, terror incidents and disasters of all kinds.
Kingdom comprises rugged mobile computers and is equipped with a special touch screen that facilitates working with gloves and protective clothing. The system's digital maps and GPS devices enable maximum orientation and real-time friendly force tracking, while alerting forces entering high-risk areas.
"The home front is under threat every day, not just during emergencies - by terrorists, natural disasters and enemy forces in military situations," said Michael Zinderman, President, Ness Technologies & Systems Group (TSG). "Especially in times of emergency, when every second is critical, Kingdom empowers users to make the best decisions and enables the homeland security forces to best manage the situation."
