Leidos wins $47M Army contract for 9-1-1 modernization

Leidos has won task orders totaling $47 million to help the Army modernize the 9-1-1 system used for emergencies on its bases.

The company will help the Army with engineering, design and fielding support for the Emergency Management Modernization Program, or EM2P. The two task orders are for the Enhanced 9-1-1 program and the Mass Warning and Notification program.

The Army’s EM2P program is the single integrated acquisition program for the design, procurement, fielding, new equipment training and life-cycle management of emergency management capabilities in support of Army installations, Leidos said in a release.

Under the Enhanced 9-1-1 order, Leidos will support E9-1-1 systems, which will improve response time, accuracy and enable on-base 9-1-1 calls to be routed directly to on-base emergency responders, instead of requiring callers to dial a seven-digit number, the company said.

Under the Mass Warning and Notification program, Leidos will provide an enterprise system, which will rapidly notify installation personnel of hazards, threats or emergencies, as well as integrate large voice towers for outdoor-audible messages with marquee systems for outdoor visual messages, the company said.
