According to an announcement from digital signage sotware firm Aerva, the U.S. Navy has awarded two contracts to Aerva Inc. to launch a base-wide network of digital displays for internal communications at the Naval Undersea Warfare Center (NUWC) in Newport, Rhode Island.
NUWC, which has nearly 6,000 civil servants and contractors employed at its Newport location, licensed Aerva technology to manage content on 40-inch and 46-inch LCD displays on its campus. NUWC also licensed Aerva server technology that is integrated with the Navy Marine Corps Intranet (NMCI) network and conforms to the Navy's server, Information Assurance (IA) security policy and other technology requirements, according to the announcement.
In 2009, Pearl Harbor Naval Shipyard (PHNSY) in Hawaii also awarded Aerva contracts for a shipyard video information and digital signage system on a network of 46-inch LCD screens placed in public areas, cafeterias, mechanic sheds and other shipyard locations. PHNSY is a regional maintenance center for the U.S. Navy's submarines and surface ships and employs 4,500 people.
