June 18, 2019 — Chantilly, VA — AMERICAN SYSTEMS today announced that it recently achieved a major milestone with the successful system acceptance of the U.S. Air Force (USAF) Emergency enterprise-wide Mass Notification System (EMNS). The EMNS is designed to provide a single, cloud-based system to send alerts to warn 100% of assigned forces quickly and effectively of an emergent event.
American Systems is a government services contractor focused on delivering strategic solutions to complex national priority programs. In order to develop and deploy a cloud-based version of its emergency notification system for the United States Air Force, American Systems had to meet Secure Cloud Computing Architecture (SCCA) requirements issued by the Defense Information Systems Agency. The company’s cloud provider, Microsoft Azure, referred them to F5. A long-time Azure partner specializing in SCCA, F5 was able to get American Systems in compliance quickly and easily. The cloud-based app is now being deployed on USAF bases and major commands in nearly every country, where up to 1 million users will rely on the application for emergency notifications.
