An initial contract with one of Europe’s largest railway operators has gone to Digital Barriers, to supply its Integrated Surveillance Platform (ISP) for protection of train and freight depots.
Digital Barriers says that its ISP provides real-time video surveillance and intrusion alerts for remote and inaccessible locations, combining with legacy infrastructure and surveillance systems. ISP is designed around the the developer’s TVI and RDC technologies. The makers say that ISP is used for critical infrastructure – such as oil and gas installations – as well as border protection, maritime security and law enforcement.
Digital Barriers says that it has been designing surveillance systems for rail and mass-transit networks for more than 20 years. This contract with an unnamed European railway operator is of particular importance for Digital Barriers, according to the firm, as the first sale of its ISP into the transport sector. Valued at about 280,000 euros, the contract is expected to be delivered in the current financial year.
Zak Doffman, Chief Executive Officer of Digital Barriers said: “Although modest in revenue terms, this is very significant for Digital Barriers providing an opportunity for us to scale up this initial deployment and to create a proven solution we can market widely across the sector. We have developed solutions to take ISP into the critical infrastructure and commercial sectors, beyond its traditional focus on defence and border protection, and this win in mainstream transportation is an early result of this effort. Our intellectual property is unique and enables a cost-effective means of maintaining real-time coverage of vast and often hostile territories. This competitive edge, evidenced by customer traction, gives Digital Barriers reason for confidence about further use of ISP across multiple customer sectors.” Visit www.digitalbarriers.com.
