Intergraph is part of a team led by Lockheed Martin that is working on a program to enhance the physical security of NSA buildings. In cooperation with AT&T, Lenel Systems International and Intelligent Decisions, the team completed successful acceptance testing two months ahead of the contract schedule. Once the system is fully operational, it will protect NSA facilities in the Washington, D.C., metropolitan area.

"Intergraph is recognized as a leader among homeland security, public safety and military intelligence software and services providers," said Halsey Wise, Intergraph president and chief executive officer. "We have long and successful relationships with many federal agencies, including NSA. We're honored to be part of this vital program designed to ensure that NSA facilities are as secure as possible."
"Intergraph's incident management capabilities are highly respected, and we have successfully teamed with them in the past on critical-mission programs," noted Jim Gaughan, director of Critical Infrastructure Protection Solutions for Lockheed Martin Transportation and Security Solutions.
