NICE and UNICOM Government Help Miami International Airport Boost Safety and Security

NICE Situator and other best of breed technologies will be deployed to enhance real-time detection and response to runway incursions at MIA

RA'ANANA, Israel and LOS ANGELES, September 24, 2013 /PRNewswire/ --

NICE Systems (NASDAQ: NICE) and UNICOM Government, Inc. today announced that they are partnering to provide Miami International Airport (MIA) with a runway incursion detection solution, which will enable the airport to secure its Airfield Operations Area (AOA). UNICOM Government is deploying the NICE Situator solution for situation management to enhance safety and security by helping MIA improve its real-time detection and response to runway incursions. The project is a continuation of a UNICOM-led security infrastructure upgrade at MIA that began in 2012 and included NiceVision Net 2.5 and other security improvements.

The runway incursion detection solution will enable MIA security personnel to detect any unidentified objects on a taxiway or runway, and respond quickly to mitigate the risk of a security breach or accident. NICE Situator is used to integrate video cameras from MIA's NiceVision video management system, as well as other data sources such as radar, real-time GPS tracking, and an airport first responder communication system.

"This important implementation is a good example of UNICOM Government's ability to bring the best technology together with our expertise and integration services to provide a best-of-breed solution for MIA," said Corry Hong, president and CEO of UNICOM Government. "NICE's Situator solution is a proven solution at several major airports, and underscores UNICOM Government's focus on providing the best solutions for MIA and all of our customers."

Situator's ability to analyze and correlate data from numerous systems creates a solution with multiple layers of verification, resulting in more accurate runway incursion detection with fewer false alarms. For example, if a legitimate incursion is detected by the ground radar and tower radar systems, PTZ (Pan Tilt Zoom) cameras will automatically track the target while the nearest first responder is notified and receives a still image and exact location of the target.

"Safeguarding our passengers is a top priority at MIA, and our work with UNICOM Government and NICE has made the airport a safer and more secure place," said Ray Davalos, Building Systems Manager, Miami International Airport. "I believe we have one of the most sophisticated security infrastructures in the world. NICE Situator has shown a great return on investment by enabling us to better leverage our existing security infrastructure."

"Miami International is among the most heavily traveled airports in the world, which makes successful security management even more critical," said Yaron Tchwella, President of the Security Group at NICE. "MIA's runway incursion detection solution is a perfect example of how airports can use their existing resources and technology more effectively in order to address a range of pressing safety and security challenges."
