Digital Barriers is a leading provider of advanced surveillance technologies, and are happy to announce that it has secured a very important contract with one of Europe’s largest railway operators to supply its Integrated Surveillance Platform (ISP) for the protection of train and freight depots.
The surveillance technology company offer solutions to real-time video security and intrusion alerts for remote and inaccessible areas, combining with the existing infrastructure and surveillance assets. The ISP will provide the maximum value for money and use of legacy systems. The technology to be installed, has been developed around the ideas used in the Groups’s TVI and RDC technologies, which are designed to address the limitations of existing surveillance technology.
The Group already works with leading international organisations responsible for operating some of the worlds most notable overland rail, mass-transit, airport and seaports. However, this contract with a leading European railway operator is of particular importance for Digital Barriers, as it is the first sale of its flagship ISP technology into the transportation sector. Valued at approximately 0.28 million, the contract is expected to be delivered in the current financial year and should lead to further sales with the same customer next financial year. Furthermore, success in this contract will serve as a proof point for the potential application of ISP technology across the transportation sector.
Zak Doffman, Chief Executive Officer of Digital Barriers commented:“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.
