Magal Security Systems To Protect U.S. International Border Crossing
Magal Security Systems recently announced that it has received, through its U.S.-based subsidiary, an order to supply a security and protection system for a major United States international border crossing. The order is expected to be delivered during 2009.
Protecting this particular border crossing, which is used by many people and goods transferring between the United States and the neighboring country, will include an array of mobile and thermal cameras for border perimeter protection. Other solutions to be deployed will include a people tracking and inspection matrix based on RFID technology and access and gate control, with wireless information broadcast for personnel and vehicles, managed by Magal's FORTIS command and control module.
"Given the U.S. Department of Homeland Security's stringent demands and the highest standards required for the protection of international borders, Magal's technology is particularly suitable and has the strongest capabilities to provide this solution,” said Izhar Dekel, CEO of Magal. “This project leverages Magal's ability and experience in international border protection. We are adding a leading customer reference to our testimonial list, and this order increases our market share in border crossing protection in the United States and worldwide.
