Magal Security Systems, Ltd. has received orders for securing homeland security sites in Asia and Latin America
Magal Security Systems, Ltd. announced three orders totalling $4.1 million for homeland security (HLS) projects in Asia and Latin America.
The first two orders totalling $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 leading taut wire system (Yael), robust smart grids to protect water passes (MagBar), a smart fence mounted fibre 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 (BOM) 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.
Eitan Livneh, President and CEO of Magal S3, commented: "Magal-S3 continues to play a major role in the homeland security arena, winning prestigious projects worldwide for high profile customers and sites. These orders represent the confidence that our customers have in our integration, delivery and full support capabilities, as well as the performance of our leading edge broad-based product portfolio".
