Adesta Awarded $2.2m Contract

Friday, September 22, 2006
Adesta, LLC, a systems integrator and project management company for communication networks and electronic security systems was awarded a $2.2 million contract from the Alabama State Port Authority to enhance security at the Port of Mobile. Adesta will design, build and install a video analytics-based intrusion detection system for the Port’s McDuffie Coal Terminal, one of the largest coal terminals in the country. The expected completion date for the project is December 2006. The system will protect against intrusion or invasion and restrict personnel to designated areas. The security measures include video analytics for intrusion detection and monitoring vessel traffic and a wireless communications link to the Port Police building, allowing police officers to remotely monitor the facility and recognize threats from a central location. These features will promote overall security and ensure continued safe and efficient Port operations. The system also includes servers to backup security information.
