Hexagon computer-aided dispatch system gets key certification from Marine Corps


HUNTSVILLE, AL March 6, 2017 The U.S. Marine Corps (USMC) Consolidated Emergency Response System (CERS) program received Initial Operational Capability (IOC) certification, declaring Hexagon's Intergraph Computer-Aided Dispatch (I/CAD) system is operational and meets the IOC CERS requirements. This important step in the system's implementation is part of the Full-Rate Production Decision Review, the last step in a rigorous implementation and approvals process.

Developed by Hexagon, I/CAD provides federal installations with hardware and software to manage incoming 911 emergency calls and incident management components accurately and in real-time. Following achieving IOC status, the CERS program will continue to implement the market-leading I/CAD system to 12 USMC bases throughout the world. Approval was based on rigorous testing, engineering and the live operation of I/CAD at Marine Corps Air Station (MCAS) Cherry Point in North Carolina.

For certification, I/CAD was also required to meet the stringent Risk Management Framework cybersecurity requirements of the DoD and the U.S. Navy. The system passed Milestone C approval last year, which certifies it meets over 1,500 stated requirements for the Marine Corps.

"Our live system acceptance at MCAS Cherry Point proves the I/CAD system meets the stringent requirements of the DoD and the U.S. Marine Corps, ensuring that the nation's warfighters are protected at home," said Cameron Smith, Hexagon US Federal vice president of security solutions.

Achieving Defense Acquisition System IOC approval allows the fielding of the CERS system to all remaining USMC installations listed in the five-year, $35 million Indefinite Delivery, Indefinite Quantity (IDIQ) contract awarded to Hexagon US Federal, formerly Intergraph Government Solutions, in 2014.
