ATLANTA, July 8 – Security solutions manufacturer Honeywell announced Wednesday that it has completed the installation of a waterside radar system at the Port of Miami.
The port, which is one of the busiest seaports in the U.S., will use the Radar Video Surveillance (RVS) system to monitor ship traffic. According to a statement issued by the company, the waterside radar is integrated with an Automatic Identification System (AIS), allowing authorities to quickly respond to any potential threats.
“Maritime security is one of the most scrutinized homeland security issues today, and effectively securing a seaport is an extremely challenging task due to the sheer size of the area,” said Jeremy Howard, Honeywell’s global account manager for critical infrastructure protection. “By collaborating with an integrator such as Adesta who has vast experience in this market and using an integrated approach, Honeywell has provided a solution that quickly delivers critical information that security personnel at the Port of Miami need to make an informed decision when responding to a threat.”
