NYSBA Selects SightLogix to Secure Hudson River Bridges
New York State Bridge Authority (NYSBA) has chosen SightLogix thermal video analytics systems to protect five large North Hudson River bridges.
NYSBA is deploying SightLogix’ video perimeter security system to secure the Bear Mountain Bridge, Newburgh-Beacon Bridge, Mid-Hudson Bridge, Kingston-Rhinecliff Bridge and the Rip Van Winkle Bridge which together serve more than 1 million Hudson River crossings each week.
“Threats to infrastructure in our country continue to this day,” said NYSBA Executive Director Joseph Ruggiero. ”It is our obligation to protect these critical bridges and to do so in a comprehensive and cost-effective manner. These video analytic systems will play an important role in accomplishing that vital task.”
“Bridge security requires accurate, reliable intruder detection in a difficult waterside environment,” said John Romanowich, SightLogix president and CEO. “SightLogix systems have been designed specifically for securing critical infrastructure in these types of harsh outdoor environments. We’re pleased to have been selected by the New York State Bridge Authority to protect public infrastructure so vitally important to our nation’s transportation and commerce.”
The SightLogix perimeter security systems will be integrated by Transdyn, a leading systems integrator for intelligent transportation and security/surveillance systems that enables customers to rapidly respond to real-time conditions and emergency situations.
