LGS Completes Video Room Upgrade for U.S. Army Installation in Alabama


VIENNA, Va.- LGS, a subsidiary of Alcatel-Lucent (Euronext Paris and NYSE: ALU) dedicated to serving the U.S. government community, announced today it had completed a video conference upgrade project for Redstone Arsenal located in northern Alabama.

Redstone Arsenal is home to the U.S. Army Aviation and Missile Command (AMCOM), the Space and Missile Defense Command, numerous Program Executive Offices (PEO), and major components of the Defense Intelligence Agency and the Missile Defense Agency.

The project involved upgrading a video room that serves as a central operations center for AMCOM’s conferencing capabilities. The central facility staff is actively engaged in video conferencing with as many as 25 sites from around the world. LGS was able to work with the customer to create a flexible, touch screen central system that allowed them to control all elements of the video teleconference and use the projection screens and other multimedia equipment for internal briefings as well.

LGS also upgraded the Redstone system to accommodate the upcoming transition to new technology. LGS has developed a hardware/software solution approved by the Defense Information Systems Agency (DISA) for video teleconferencing systems (VTC) operating on the DVS-II network. This system allows the user to switch between networks from a centralized control panel using a sequenced checklist, enabling VTC systems to be utilized in both secure and non-secure modes without compromising the integrity of the secure network. This system has been tested by the DISN Video Services Lab and approved for use in VTC systems on the DVS-II network.

“The convergence of data, voice and video is transforming the way our customers communicate,” said Ron Iverson, CEO, LGS. “Video conferencing is an efficient but complex undertaking, requiring highly trained staff, extensive network experience and a comprehensive knowledge of current and emerging technologies.”

LGS has unsurpassed skills and experience in video conferencing design and implementation, network configuration, software engineering, room design and physical construction. Its expertise extends to more than 100 different components from a wide variety of vendors, enabling government agencies to have a video solution tailored to meet their needs.

The LGS Custom Software & Video Integration team has designed, developed, implemented, integrated and maintained full-scale enterprise database systems ranging from handfuls of users to hundreds of users. LGS has extensive technical experience integrating multiple off-the-shelf database solutions and proprietary government solutions.
