Adesta Selected by MD Port Administration

Tuesday, November 08, 2005
Adesta announced that it has executed a $5.5M contract with the Maryland Port Administration to design and install a sophisticated security system at the Port of Baltimore. The wide-ranging project will include the installation of a remote video surveillance system as well as enhancements to terminal perimeter security. The expected completion date for the project is fall 2006. The system will provide the Port with total perimeter security and includes a fully scalable communications and electronic security network. The perimeter security measures include closed circuit television, video analytics by VistaScape Security Systems, and force protection for all terminals located at the Port. Real time intrusion detection technology and thermal and low light cameras will allow security personnel to monitor fences, terminals, gates, and piers in order to quickly respond to suspicious activities. The communications network will be a robust wide area network with both wireless and fiber optic links to connect the public terminals. The wide area network will have significant capacity to support expansion of the security system and other applications requiring port wide communications. The system installed by Adesta will increase the effectiveness of the Port security staff and ensure continued efficient and safe Port operations. Besides safeguarding the cargo that flows in and out of the Port, the system will also provide expanded safety and security for employees, visitors, and the citizens of Baltimore. These upgrades will help the Port of Baltimore meet the guidelines set forth by the Maritime Transportation Security Act (MTSA). As a member of the Department of Homeland Security, the U.S. Coast Guard implements these government regulations geared towards ports and other waterways as a result 9/11.
