Founders Bruce Robertson and Tom Wood determined there were three important issues surrounding exiting EAS systems. One, the original scope of EAS was expanding – becoming more important and critical to government agencies. Two, the EAS equipment available at the time was not up to task and needed significant technological improvements. And, third, a blended approach leveraging the best information processing technology with network-centric thinking, and an understanding of current broadcaster requirements would better serve and create a more relevant EAS platform which incorporated easily upgradable software to ensure long-term viability.
Digital Alert Systems became a division of Monroe Electronics.
Digital Alert Systems remains dedicated to the company’s initial vision – continue creating better ways to improve overall EAS operations, enhance forthcoming compliance changes like CAP and IPAWS, by leveraging the best technologies with a network-centric approach, and providing customers the best possible sales, service and support.
