Magal Security Systems
: 15 June, 2008  (Company News)
Magal Security Systems Ltd. has announced that it has signed contracts for the installation of municipal command and control systems in several Israeli cities, including Netanya and Bat Yam, based on its FORTIS system that was modified for this purpose. In addition, Magal received another order for installation of a Fortis system that will be used to protect water reservoirs in Ramat Gan. The total amount of these orders is approximately US$ 1.5 million, to be completed by the end of 2008.
The modified FORTIS system will integrate command and control of the entire security infrastructure of the cities, protecting the citizens, their public areas, parks, educational and industrial facilities, and water reservoirs from acts of vandalism, burglary and sabotage, while at the same time, increasing the sense of security of the residents in those communities.



Using advanced technology, including dozens of smart cameras, the modified FORTIS system provides the control-centers of these municipalities with a unique graphical command tool, which updates the location and live video feed of the areas under alert, while enabling operators to quickly dispatch and monitor security personnel with real-time updates, thus optimizing the operational response.



Mr. Izhar Dekel. CEO of Magal said, 'Netanya and Bat Yam join the long list of Israeli cities and local municipalities that are already using the FORTIS system to protect their surroundings and citizens. Since July 2005, when we received the first order for a municipal installation of the FORTIS system in Rosh Ha’ayin, we have received numerous additional orders for municipal installations in other major Israeli cities including Haifa.'



Mr. Dekel added: 'Our system has now gained significant traction in Israel, and while we look forward to expanding to additional Israeli cities and increasing the scope of existing projects, we are aiming to increase our penetration outside of Israel. In that regard, we are competing for projects in major cities in Europe and elsewhere.'
