Herzliya, Israel (PRWEB) November 15, 2006
ioimage, the pioneer of intelligent video appliances designed for simplicity in installation and operation, announced today that it has been selected by 4D Security Solutions, Inc., to enhance perimeter security at JFK International, LaGuardia, Newark Liberty International and Teterboro airports.
The Port Authority of New York and New Jersey (PANYNJ) selected Raytheon as the prime contractor for the Perimeter Intrusion Detection System (PIDS) project. Raytheon is leading an industry team, to include 4D and ioimage, in implementing a comprehensive system to protect the region's airports, staff and patrons who use these critical facilities.
4D Security Solutions, Inc., one of the nation's innovative homeland security systems providers and a major subsystem provider on this Raytheon company-led team effort, will design, integrate, test, and install the technology required to implement the PANYNJ's integrated PIDS for the New York and New Jersey area's four airports.
ioimage's intelligent video solution will serve as a key component in the project's high-tech perimeter and video surveillance security system, which also includes advanced sensors and multi-sensor fusion, assessment subsystems and facility communications subsystems for complete site management at the airports.
Designed for simplicity in installation and operation, ioimage units simultaneously detect perimeter intruders, suspicious baggage, illegally parked cars and removed items, while also featuring autonomous pan-tilt-zoom camera tracking. The units deliver multi-security task capabilities in a compact DSP-based hardware design that can be used stand-alone or over a network.
"It's a strategic win for security and public protection for the people of New York and New Jersey and for global travelers," said Roni Kass, ioimage CEO and founder. "Whether it's a major international airport, school campus, factory or nuclear power plant, our technology enables both high-end and mid-range facilities to easily enhance security against modern-day threats, such as terrorist attacks and criminal activities, as well as improve day-to-day operations using intelligent video appliances."
