The modified FORTIS system will integrate command and control of the entire security infrastructure of the city, protecting its industrial facilities, water reservoirs and its citizens from burglars and sabotage. Magal expects that more applications will be integrated into the system in the future, such as the integration of command and control for the fire departments and emergency rescue teams.
Using advanced technology which includes dozens of smart cameras, the modified FORTIS system will provide the control center of the municipality with a unique graphical command tool, which will update the location details and video view of the alerting area, while simultaneously enabling operators to dispatch and monitor security personnel, thus optimizing the operational response.
Mr. Even-Ezra, Chairman of Magal said: ” This is the first time that Magal is involved in control and command of civil activities, and we are pleased that our R&D people were able to modify the Fortis system and adapt it to the unique needs specified for this particular project. We believe that this opens a new niche for Magal’s systems and we believe that our success will lead to more orders following from other cities.”
