Class I railroad awards rail security contract

(Duos Technologies issued the following on March 6.)

JACKSONVILLE, Fla. — A leading rail carrier has awarded a contract in excess of $500,000 to Duos Technologies, Inc. to secure a key rail yard in the western United States, safeguarding property and assets at the facility.

Duos-developed intelligent video security and sensor technology will be used to establish a “virtual perimeter,” providing continuous, active monitoring of the yard and rail cars. The system is designed to function as an intrusion detector to identify a perimeter breach, assess threat risk, and promptly alert security personnel. Authorized rail security personnel can view both real-time, streaming video and video archives, both locally and over a network. This enables event information to be dispersed with a minimal false alarm rate in an expandable, cost effective, and reliable manner.

“The rail and transportation industry as a whole continues to recognize Duos’ ability to design and deploy security solutions for the unique needs and specific threats they encounter,” stated Gianni Arcaini, CEO of Duos Technologies. “The transportation of our country’s goods and services is directly related to the health of the nation’s economy and its citizens. The nature of how commerce is conducted is a dynamic and evolving system that faces dynamic and evolving threats. The solutions put in place to protect this type of infrastructure must be able to adapt and expand, which is a key component of both Duos’ technology and our business philosophy.”

Duos Technologies Inc., headquartered in Jacksonville, Florida, provides a broad range of technology solutions with an emphasis on Homeland Security. Its systems are based on its proprietary object detection and behavioral analysis software, managed by the company’s multi-layer control platform. This allows seamless integration of a myriad of sensing technologies into a unified command and control interface. Its comprehensive automated systems play a meaningful role in the transportation, petrochemical, and healthcare industries.
