Reston, VA (PRWEB) August 13, 2013
CRGT Inc., a leading provider of full life-cycle IT services and an expert in emerging technology solutions for the Federal Government, announced an award of a $600,000 grant funded by DHS/FEMA for the Maritime Domain Awareness Infrastructure Program. This award was made to Signal Electronics in Freeport, Texas who partnered with CRGT as principal subcontractor. The City of Freeport, on the Gulf Coast, has vital assets in our nation’s energy infrastructure, which are located within the critical, first-responder area of the Freeport Police Department.
Daniel W. Pennington, Chief of Police, Freeport Police Department, said, “CRGT and Signal did an outstanding job on our surveillance project. They were very responsive to our requests and needs. Frequently, they went beyond what was expected to ensure our satisfaction.” Tom Ferrando, CRGT’s President, noted that “This work is special to CRGT because it allows us to serve at the front line of Homeland Security in a proactive manner.”
CRGT and Signal Electronics worked with the City to design, develop, and implement a system to protect the port by protecting the City itself. This system provides new capabilities such as enhancing homeland security, crime detection and deterrence, and a technology platform for future planned security enhancements. The system will serve as a force multiplier for the Police Department. The system’s cameras and license plate recognition (LPR) capability are like having “an extra sets of eyes” on the street. This successful project is being considered for expansion to other regional municipalities.
