Magal Security Systems, has signed a US$35.5 million contract for a turnkey project, to provide an integrated security system, covering multiple sites, for the African Cup of Nations Football Championship to be held in January 2012 in West Africa.
The project will cover football grounds, the stadium and the Olympic villages for the participating teams. The full solution will be networked and integrated into several command and control centers by Fortis, Magal's PSIM system. A built-in hierarchical structure will enable control of several smaller centers by a main regional control center.
The security solution includes Magal's latest technologies and a full surveillance solution with multiple surveillance cameras and video analytics capabilities. Additionally, various types of gates with access control, X-Ray screening devices for visitors, intercom and public announcement systems will complement the full solution.
