CHANTILLY, Va. -- GTSI Corp. a leading government information technology and solutions aggregator, thanked its partners DMJM Technology, Quality Communications, Lenel Systems International, Inc., and Cisco for helping to make Super Bowl XXXIX a highly successful event. Last July, GTSI and members of its InteGuard Alliance won a contract with the City of Jacksonville, FL. to design and implement an end-to-end video surveillance system to be deployed in the City of Jacksonville and the Alltel Stadium for Super Bowl XXXIX.
Yesterday, the New England Patriots were not the only winner. The City of Jacksonville showed the best defense is a good offense by implementing a sophisticated video surveillance system that would offer protection for the Super Bowl attendees as well as build the technology platform providing for the City's long-term security needs. The system is scalable and can be expanded as needed.
"We are extremely proud that GTSI has been a part of this high profile event," said Dendy Young, GTSI Chairman and Chief Executive Officer. "There are many who deserve the credit for this achievement. Congratulations to our GTSI team who worked hard to win and manage this project and to our InteGuard Alliance partners who helped build the system. Special thanks to Dave Lauer, CIO of the City of Jacksonville; Under Sheriff Frank Mackesy; and Keith Van der Leest, Senior Operations Manager of the Alltel Stadium all of whom worked diligently to make this project a major success. In this new era of heightened physical security protection, GTSI is pleased to offer the experience gained in Jacksonville to create solutions for agencies, cities and other jurisdictions that need to protect their citizens."
