Key Features and Facts

Pershing Technologies spearheaded a comprehensive modernization project for the National Defense University (NDU), a vital institution sponsored by the Department of Defense (DoD) dedicated to educating joint warfighters. The project encompassed ten auditoriums across NDU’s two campuses: Fort McNair in Washington, D.C. and Joint Forces Staff College in Norfolk, Virginia.


Modernizing for Strategic Advantage

Pershing Technologies’ role involved the engineering and design of a customized modernization strategy for each auditorium. This included the selection and specification of cutting-edge audiovisual systems tailored to enhance NDU’s ability to deliver world-class education and training. Following the design phase, Pershing Technologies’ skilled technicians expertly programmed and commissioned these new systems, ensuring seamless operation upon completion.
