RESTON, Va.--ObjectVideo, a provider of intelligent video based here, announced a slew of contracts in June from the Alabama State Port Authority, the Marine Corps and the Memphis Airport--all which will use the company's technology for perimeter protection.
The Alabama State Port Authority will use ObjectVideo VEW to monitor the port's perimeter and other areas, and provide real-time detection and identification of potential threats. The technology is a component of a security system devised by Honeywell Building Solutions for the port authority and will be installed on fixed and pan/tilt/zoom analog Pelco cameras. Work is expected to be completed in August 2005. The port authority's purchase of ObjectVideo's software was partially funded with a Transportation Security Administration grant as part of ongoing security upgrades in conjunction U.S. Homeland Security measures. The public cargo terminals at the Alabama State Port Authority handle roughly 24 million tons of cargo per year.
The company also announced that the Marine Corps' 2nd Marine Expeditionary Force is using ObjectVideo VEW to create a virtual perimeter around forward-operating bases to detect and identify threats to Marines in secure areas of Fallujah, Iraq.
The Memphis/Shelby County Airport contracted ObjectVideo's technology as a component of an Aviation Perimeter Intrusion Detection System to enhance perimeter security and protect against threats to the airport, and arriving and departing aircraft. The product is part of the APIDS developed by Stanley Security Solutions. The software will be integrated with closed circuit television cameras to detect security threats along 34,000 feet of fenced perimeter, as well as to alert airport and law enforcement authorities.
