General Dynamics Selected to Deploy Next Generation 9-1-1 System in Fairfax County, Virginia

NENA i3 standards-based solution to accommodate five locations within the county and provide comprehensive support, monitoring and maintenance.

FAIRFAX, Va., March 28, 2016 — (PRNewswire) —  General Dynamics Information Technology, a business unit of General Dynamics (NYSE: GD), was awarded a contract to develop, deploy and provide maintenance and support for a Next Generation 9-1-1 (NG9-1-1) solution for Fairfax County, Virginia. The solution supports the five primary and secondary answering points in the County and enables Fairfax County to accept and route emergency 9-1-1 information from a variety of sources and provides much improved capabilities for cooperative processing and resource sharing between the five locations as well.  

Under this contract, General Dynamics will replace the Fairfax County's legacy emergency call-handling system with a secure, IP-based NG9-1-1 system that permits emergency service requests from existing public networks through new and emerging modes of communication and devices. The system will provide additional mapping capabilities using Geographic Information Systems data for caller locations and integrate incoming 9-1-1 texts and 9-1-1 voice calls under one unified platform.

"General Dynamics Information Technology helps governments successfully deploy NG9-1-1 systems," said Ed Hudson, vice president of General Dynamics Information Technology's State and Local Solutions business area. "Our comprehensive approach to the migration from legacy systems to the most sophisticated 9-1-1 technologies for mission critical communications provides a solid platform for our customers' successes."

General Dynamics has launched more than 50 E911 systems into service, provided integration for new narrowband, wide area, trunked land mobile radio system and continues to deploy mission critical communications systems in the government market. The company also has deployed a similar solution for Morgan County, Ohio and has several advanced projects underway.
