NICE Systems Ltd. (Nasdaq: NICE; TASE: NICE) today announced that NICE Situator, the company's global situation management solution, will be deployed at Denver International Airport (DIA) to enhance security and safety. Situator will form the backbone of DIA’s Integrated Airport Management System, enabling DIA to more effectively and efficiently respond to, mitigate, resolve, and recover from security incidents, emergencies and other events. Details about the size of the deal were not disclosed.
SAIC (Science Applications International Corporation, NYSE:SAI), the system integrator for the project, will direct the design, development, and implementation of the solution, with the first phase to be completed in late 2013.
Denver International Airport is the fifth-busiest in the US, serving more than 50 million passengers annually, and the largest airport site in North America. The airport must be prepared to handle a large volume and variety of security and emergency situations. The Situator implementation will focus on management of the airport’s critical security systems. The integration of video surveillance, GIS mapping software, and access control will help the airport improve situational awareness, while Situator’s automated, adaptive response plans will enhance the handling of security-related events.
NICE Security Group president Yaron Tchwella said, “Our extensive airport domain expertise has led to proven results across other US cities and airports around the globe. We look forward to working with SAIC on this important project in order to help DIA take its airport management to the next level.”
