Nortel called up for NRC digital court work

Nortel Government Solutions Inc. won a four-year, $7.7 million prime contract from the Nuclear Regulatory Commission to operate and maintain its digital courtroom systems in two locations.

Located in Las Vegas and Rockville, Md., the digital court systems handle electronic evidence presentation, digital and audio transcripts and electronic capture and display of evidence. The systems are designed to help the NRC's Atomic Safety and Licensing Board Panel simplify proceedings for both routine cases and complicated ones involving nuclear regulatory licenses. Nortel implemented both systems earlier this year.

The company also will furnish support for the agency's hearings, application development and testing under the contract.

Nortel's teammates MediaEdge, Levare Inc. and ExihibitOne Corp. will provide hardware, software and integration services.

The digital court systems are currently in place to handle a case that may arise from an Energy Department license application for a commercial nuclear reactor waster storage facility at Nevada's Yucca Mountain. They will store and provide electronic access to millions of pages of evidence and thousands of hours of testimony that may arise from the case. The hearing, which Congress mandated, is expected to last three to four years.

Nortel Government Solutions of Fairfax, Va., is a unit of Nortel Networks Corp. of Brampton, Ontario, Canada. The parent company ranks No. 69 on Washington Technology's 2006 Top 100list of federal prime contractors.
