The first agreement is with FalconStor Software, Inc. (Nasdaq: FALC). FalconStor delivers proven, comprehensive data protection solutions globally that facilitate the continuous availability of business-critical data with speed, integrity, and simplicity. CSST and FalconStor are exploring technologies in areas of data storage and protection solutions. This will further increase the efficiency and effectiveness of the centralized network control centers managing the cameras and data obtained from remote sites. FalconStor's advanced technologies will add further strength to CSST's product offering as it competes for Safe City projects in China . As part of this agreement, FalconStor will also assist CSST with products and marketing development in the global market through its existing distribution network.
The second agreement is with FLIR Systems, Inc. (Nasdaq: FLIR), a world leader in the design, manufacture and marketing of thermography and imaging products. Under the agreement, CSST's wholly owned subsidiary, Changzhou MinKing Electronics Co. ("MinKing") has selected the thermal imaging core component produced by FLIR Systems to be integrated into Minking's security camera solutions. The core components will upgrade Minking's cameras with thermal imaging capabilities that can be used for commercial security applications, including perimeter security, ground-based anti-smuggling installations, and airport security. In addition, both companies will work together to explore other technological applications for the security market.
"We are excited to be collaborating with these two quality companies, both of which offer highly compelling solutions for the security and surveillance industry," commented Mr. Guoshen Tu, Chief Executive Officer of China Security. "As local government Safe City projects continue to accelerate in China , there is a major need for advanced data storage solutions. FalconStor will help CSST advance its technology in the area of IP-based storage and offer more technical support which can strengthen our ability to obtain new Safe City contracts. FLIR possesses top notch imaging technology which provides us with an opportunity to develop enhanced security camera solutions for our growing base of customers.
