Orsus, a supplier in the field of situation management, announced it has partnered with Israeli-based systemsintegrator Orad to implement Situator at two airports in the Republic of Cyprus, Paphos and Larnaka International Airports.
The two-part project was awarded to Orad by Bouygues Construction, one of the world's providers in building, civil engineering, electrical contracting and maintenance, operating in over eighty countries. Orad specializes in integrated advanced security and control systems.
The first project involved installing Situator at Paphos International Airport, a newly constructed facility representing the second largest airport on the Mediterranean island. As part of the project, Orad implemented the latest technology, including physical and logical biometrics-based access control systems and advanced IP based surveillance systems.
Situator brings together these security solutions and manages its new standard operating procedures and emergency scenarios at the recently opened terminal. The second phase of the project, currently in progress, involves implementing Situator at Larnaka International Airport, which is the largest airport in the Republic of Cypress. It serves an estimated 7 million passengers each year. The new airport, now under construction, is scheduled to open in November of 2009.
"Airports are complex facilities to manage from a security perspective. The implementation at Paphos and Larnaka International Airports, with the latest in airport security and passenger screening technologies adds the consolidated experience that Orsus has gained over the years in the transportation market,” said Rafi Bhonker, VP of Marketing and Sales, Orsus. “We look forward to this relationship with Orad and the Cypress international airports to continue to develop in the future.”
Situator is a comprehensive situation management software platform that delivers clarity and control to enterprise control rooms — enabling better coordination of the interaction between people, alerting sources and responses.
