CES Las Vegas - Jan 8, 2009 - Global Security Systems (GSS) has teamed with Northrop Grumman's Mission Systems sector to deploy national, state and local alert and warning systems that leverage wireless and non-wireless communications infrastructure and consumer devices such as cell phones, music players and GPS devices. The combined systems will enable the President, state and local officials, and emergency management agencies to communicate with first responders and citizens during emergencies. In particular, this collaboration addresses the requirements of the Department of Homeland Security (DHS) to deploy an Integrated Public Alert and Warning System (IPAWS).

The GSS Net Alert FM system uses an FM chip that can be inserted into many common consumer devices to enable them to receive weather, homeland security and local alerts including traffic emergencies and AMBER alerts. The system is currently installed in more than 10 states. The devices currently receive content from broadcast partners, and state and local agencies.
