The National Alert Aggregation & Dissemination System is one component of a broader national public alerting system.

Pelmorex’s NAAD System collects public safety messages from authorized government authorities and distributes those messages by satellite and through the internet to broadcasting undertakings such as radio and television stations, cable and satellite TV companies and other last mile distributors (LMDs). There is no charge by Pelmorex for these services.
