Army Deploys M/A-COM Gear for NCR (10/10)
Tuesday, October 10, 2006 | Comments

M/A-COM announced that its trunked P25IP (Project 25 to the power of IP) radio communications system, including its NetworkFirst interoperability solution, has been fully deployed in the National Capital Region (NCR) by the Army's Director of Information Management (DOIM). The P25 system is phase one of the NCR project and will link more than 5,000 federal personnel and up to 58 public safety agencies in and around the NCR. The NCR system is the first completely operational Department of Defense (DoD) LMR IP-based P25 system to serve the U.S. Army, the supplier said. NCR phase one provides interoperable mission-critical voice communications with civilian public safety agencies in the NCR, including greater Washington, D.C., Maryland, Virginia, and Fort Hamilton, N.Y. The deployment of NCR phase two, also known as Joint NCR, will add the U.S. Navy, along with the U.S. Air Force. Joint NCR, expected to be completed by year-end, will provide seamless wide-area communications and convoy operations over a large footprint, and is one of the first tri-service DoD LMR systems.
