The fort is located in Richmond, Jefferson, McDuffie, and Columbia counties, Georgia. The main component of the post is the Advanced Individual Training for Signal Corps military occupational specialties.

•369th Signal Battalion

•447th Signal Battalion

The Desktop Alerting Notification System is currently in use or in deployment at Fort Hood, TX, Fort Rucker, AL, Fort Campbell, KY USMA at West Point, NY, Fort Leavenworth, KS, Fort Leonard Wood, MO, Fort Polk, LA, US Forces in Belgium, USAG Baden-Wurttemberg, Heidelberg, Germany, USSOUTHCOM and over 120 National Guard deployments as well as procurement of this COTS (Commercial-Off-The-Shelf) Department of Defense enterprise-level mass notification platform at numerous other U.S. Department of Defense military installations worldwide.

At a minimum the alert platform provides:

•Rapid deployment across the Fort Gordon enterprise in 3 days or less

•Will operate on Fort Gordon's' existing network infrastructure without introduction of new devices to the network

•100% interoperability to the U.S. National Guard nationwide alert and recall automation infrastructure and numerous other Department of Defense, DHS and local state government agencies worldwide

•Common Alerting Protocol (CAP) Integration which now facilitates mass notification across cooperating military and government agencies worldwide

•Optional Integration with social media such as Twitter, Facebook, LinkedIn and MySpace and more

•Device independent architecture for integration to all future alerting devices and platforms

"Desktop Alert is honored by this selection. This latest deployment marks a significant expansion of the Desktop Alert MNWS for Installation Management Command in the Southeast Region," said Howard Ryan, CEO and Founder of Desktop Alert Inc. "The U.S. Army's deployment of The Desktop Alert MNWS at Fort Gordon combined with the recent Fort Hood and National Guard nationwide expansion of the Desktop Alert MNWS further solidifies the company position as leading provider of MNWS to the U.S. Army in CONUS and abroad."

The system includes a perpetual license. The systems maintenance-tail is very low thus insuring indefinite life-cycle usage of the platform regardless of fiscal year budgetary limitations. Desktop Alert uniquely provides all of the system source code to the United States Department of Defense for both review and safe keeping.
