RA'ANANA, Israel, April 30, 2013 /PRNewswire/ --
NICE Systems (NASDAQ: NICE) today announced that NICE Situator, NICE's global market-leading situation management solution, will be used 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.
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 expected to be completed in late 2013.
Denver International Airport is the fifth-busiest in the United States, 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.
"We are proud to have been chosen by SAIC to help Denver International Airport fulfill its vision for airport management, which centers around the enhancement of security and safety," said Yaron Tchwella, President of the NICE Security Group. "Our extensive airport domain expertise has led to proven results across other U.S. 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."
"SAIC is pleased to be working with NICE to provide Denver International Airport a highly capable and robust, mission-oriented situation management platform. This will lay the foundation for an Integrated Airport Management System that will serve the airport's needs for years to come," said SAIC Project Manager Mark Denari.
