Adesta, LLC, a systems integrator and project management company for communication networks and electronic security systems has been selected to design, install and integrate an enhanced command and control system for the Port of Corpus Christi, in Corpus Christi, Texas. The new, state of the art command and control system will control all the Port’s security subsystems, both existing and new. The new subsystems include advanced radar and SONAR sensors as well as computer aided dispatch, automated vehicle and personnel location devices and additional video analytics capabilities. The $3.5 million project is expected to be completed in September of 2010.
The new command and control platform will allow the port to have an all encompassing view of security status in real time. It will merge event and alarm reporting from all of the various systems into a single operator interface. The radar and SONAR systems add an additional layer of protection for the port entrances; and the new computer aided dispatch (CAD) and records management systems will greatly improve the response time and information management aspects for occurrences and events, while providing a more reliable, up-to-the-minute history and reporting source.
Bob Sommerfeld, President of Adesta, had this to say, “The maritime industry plays a key role in the prosperity of the American economy; therefore, security is key.
Adesta is committed to ensuring our ports are well guarded from any outside threats that may bring harm to our nation. This high-level deployment will provide a glimpse into the future of maritime security, and solidify Corpus as a maritime leader.”
“Adesta was the prime integrator for the Port of Corpus Christi’s deployment of an intelligent video system,” said Arch Archambo, Corpus Christi Chief of Police and Security. “We were very satisfied with their performance and commitment, and expect a similar success in the case of this state-of-the-art command and control installation.”
