U.S. Marine Corps to Deploy Intergraph Computer-Aided Dispatch to 13 Bases Worldwide


Sharing is Caring

Software receives Milestone C and Full Deployment Decision approval following successful operation at MCAS Cherry Point

MADISON, Ala., June 16, 2016 – The U.S. Marine Corps (USMC), as part of the Consolidated Emergency Response System (CERS) program, will deploy Intergraph Computer-Aided Dispatch (I/CAD) software across 13 USMC bases throughout the world. With the support of Intergraph Government Solutions (IGS) and the Marine Corps Systems Command (MCSC), the CERS program office received a combined Milestone C and Full Deployment Decision approval for the software, a key step in the Department of Defense's acquisition process that enables the program to move forward with full system deployment.

Working with the MCSC team, approval was based on rigorous testing and engineering and the live operation of I/CAD at Marine Corps Air Station (MCAS) Cherry Point in North Carolina. Developed by IGS’ parent company, Hexagon Safety & Infrastructure, I/CAD was required to meet the stringent Risk Management Framework cybersecurity requirements of the Department of Defense and the U.S. Navy.

“Our live system acceptance at MCAS Cherry Point proved crucial to gaining Milestone C and Full Deployment Decision approval,” said Cameron Smith, IGS executive director of security solutions. “We’re very pleased with the result and look forward to continued expansion of I/CAD implementations within Marine Corps and other Department of Defense installations.”

Achieving Defense Acquisition System Milestone C and Full Deployment Decision approval allows the fielding of the CERS system to all USMC installations listed in the five-year, $23 million Indefinite Delivery, Indefinite Quantity (IDIQ) contract awarded to IGS in 2014.  Also as part of the CERS program, the U.S. Navy has formally approved I/CAD for use within the Department of Navy networks through the U.S. Navy Application and Database Management System (DADMS) certification.

Much like the MCAS Cherry Point system, any Department of Defense implementations of I/CAD will provide installations with hardware and software to manage incoming 911 emergency calls and incident management components accurately and in real-time. Through I/CAD, Department of Defense first responders will receive all associated incident information, along with critical location-based hazard information, prior calls and a shared common map of the incident for superb situational awareness.
