“We are honored to have been selected by the Air Force to supplement their global readiness communications channels,“ said Peter Smith, president and CEO of American Systems.

“We know how important it is to our nation's airmen and their families that they have a secure, real-time emergency notification system no matter where they are serving“”we know what's at stake,“ Smith added.

The  Air Force’s EMNS will employ BlackBerry‘s AtHoc Crisis Communications Software Suite designed to run on Amazon Web Services‘ cloud platform.
