Magal receives $4.1 million in orders to secure homeland security sites
Magal Security Systems, Ltd. announced on Feb. 14 three orders it has received totaling $4.1 million for homeland security (HLS) projects in Asia and Latin America.
The first two orders totaling $1.1 million are for equipment that will protect the perimeters of two unnamed 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 fiber optic detection system and microwave detectors.
Magal’s 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 two or three tiers of smart perimeter systems in an overall solution.
The third order, worth $3 million, is for a federal crisis management bunker in an unidentified Latin American country.
It is a “Build, Own and Maintain,” or BOM, project which incorporates 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, according to a press release issued by Magal on Feb. 14.
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 purchase the equipment and system outright.
Eitan Livneh, president and CEO of Magal S3, said, “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.”
