FAIR LAWN, N.J., Jan. 25 /PRNewswire/ -- New Jersey-based Mer Security, a worldwide leader and innovator in robust, proactive PSIM (Physical Security Information Management) technology, is deploying a cutting-edge 3D layout command and control system integrated with their proven Secure-M PSIM technology for Israel's Ashdod Port, one of the region's largest, busiest seaports.  

Mer Security competed against several other consortiums for this high-profile project.  "We are pleased that Mer was chosen to protect this critical seaport and its surrounding city. We look forward to deploying Secure-M with its new enhanced features and demonstrate its capabilities," said Mer Security's R&D Director, Mr. Eran Sivan.

Ashdod Port's project scope meant finding a solution that enhanced their operators' ability to visually and audibly track and identify criminal or terrorist security threats and respond to these threats and any urgent situations in real time. They also needed a precision technology that could provide them with an accurate head count and vehicle count for first responders in the event of an emergency or mandatory evacuation.

To that end, the Ashdod Port chose Mer Security's Secure-M software platform and 3D command and control system. Secure-M integrates disparate surveillance devices, alarms, thermal sensors and CCTVs, reporting all of their data feeds to a single dashboard. This gives operators full management capabilities of Ashdod Port, with multiple video images and advanced sensors displayed over 3D maps and images.  Operators can also distribute alerts via SMS, IM, and email. Operators have the ability to place one event on hold and respond to a more critical event, or even manage multiple threats of varied alert levels simultaneously, in real time.
