Intergraph Software for Emergency, Incident Mgmt Gets Approval for Deployment at 13 Marine Corps Bases

IGSIntergraph Government Solutions’ software platform will be deployed across 13 U.S. Marine Corps installations worldwide after the platform received milestone C and full deployment approval under the defense acquisition system.

IGS said Thursday the deployment approval for Intergraph Computer-Aided Dispatch was based on the software tool’s live operation and testing conducted at Marine Corps Air Station Cherry Point in North Carolina.

Hexagon Safety & Infrastructure – parent company of IGS – developed I/CAD software that works to help military bases manage emergency calls, receive incident and hazard information as well as gain access to a common map incident for situational awareness functions.

The Marine Corps awarded IGS a five-year, $23 million contract in 2014 for the software under the branch’s Consolidated Emergency Response System program.

IGS also received approval from the U.S. Navy to deploy I/CAD across the military branch’s networks as part of the CERS initiative and the Department of the Navy Application and Database Management System certification.
