"NORTHCOM requested an integrated solution that provided a consistent look and feel for military personnel, while also upholding the security measures required of the facility," says Landon Lovett, director of federal government markets at Crestron. "We understand the specialized needs of government and military agencies and the importance of network security and reliable automation of audio/video technology throughout a facility."
NORTHCOM provides command and control of U.S. Department of Defense (DOD) homeland defense, covering air, land, and sea approaches to the continental U.S., Alaska, Canada, Mexico, and the surrounding water to 500 nautical miles. Although NORTHCOM plans, organizes, and carries out homeland defense and civil support missions, the command has few permanently assigned forces, so the command is assigned forces whenever necessary.
