Magal Security Systems Protects Homeland Security Sites In Asia, Latin America
Magal Security Systems, Ltd. Recently announced three orders totaling $4.1 million for homeland security projects in Asia and Latin America.
The first two orders totaling $1.1 million are for equipment that will protect the perimeters of two nuclear power plants in East Asia.
The orders include multiple Magal products: the company’s taut wire system (Yael), robust smart grids to protect water passes (MagBar), a smart fence mounted fiber optic detection system and microwave detectors.
Magal’s leading all-in-one video management and intelligent video analysis application -- DreamBox -- is also part of the order. High security sites, such as nuclear facilities, typically use 2-3 tiers of smart perimeter systems in an overall solution.
The third order in the amount of $3 million is for a federal crisis management bunker in a Latin American country.
It is a Build, Own and Maintain project incorporating a full security and a site management solution. The project includes a CCTV system with a large video wall, a visitor screening system with X-ray, metal and biometrics detectors, access control, a public announcement system, a Perimeter Intrusion Detection System (PIDS) and a site management system for the building’s utilities.
The current contract is for a two year term, at the end of which, the customer has the option to either continue a lease with Magal, including service, or will purchase the equipment and system outright.
