Paladin Data's ASM III Wins National Defense Industrial Association Award

POULSBO, WA--(Marketwire - November 12, 2009) - Paladin Data Systems Corporation's recently launched Advanced Skills Management system (ASM III) has been recognized as one of the Top 5 Department of Defense (DoD) Program Award recipients by the National Defense Industrial Association (NDIA) in conjunction with Raytheon Company and the Naval Undersea Warfare Center - Keyport (NUWC).

The award recognizes organizations employing well-defined and proven processes and practices to develop, manage, and integrate software and state-of-the-art hardware that result in successful delivery of programs with significant software content to DoD. ASM III allows the DoD to proactively assess and assign personnel to best meet the strategic goals of the military while reducing costs for training. According to Juan Haley, Paladin's ASM III project lead, "The award recognizes Paladin's highly successful software design methodologies, and effective teamwork across the three organizations as the key to delivering high quality software to the DoD on time and on budget."

Paladin has been working with the military for over 10 years on a system that has assisted in the qualification of over 60,000 personnel by managing maintenance training records and standardizing the processes. The success of the program has created demand from other military units for the system and Paladin knew the system had wide reaching uses for training and development of military personnel. This demand led to the development of ASM III.

ASM III allows commanders to view capabilities of their forces from the broadest scope to the narrowest detail. "ASM III will revolutionize the way the Department of Defense does business," states Jim Nall, president and CEO of Paladin. "With clear visibility into workforce qualification and readiness, Commanders and supervisors can proactively align mission requirements with staffing capabilities and ensure they have the right person in the right place at the right time. It is a great honor to be recognized by NDIA on this effort."

Representatives of Paladin, Raytheon, NUWC-Keyport will accept the award at the NDIA annual conference in San Diego on October 28, 2009.
