22 Dec 10. Northrop Grumman Corporation and i2, McLean, Va., have developed an interface between the U.S. Naval Criminal Investigative Service’s (NCIS) Law Enforcement Information Exchange (LInX) and i2’s COPLINK to create vital information sharing capabilities between local, state and federal law enforcement agencies. Northrop Grumman, i2 and the NCIS are conducting a pilot program with the state of Alaska. Set to begin in early 2011, the pilot program will enable law enforcement agencies in Alaska and Washington state to share information. Once the connection is live, agencies in Alaska that use COPLINK, and agencies in Washington and Oregon that use LInX, will have access to both resources. Based on results of the pilot, the new capability will be extended to other jurisdictions throughout the country using COPLINK and/or LInX.
