Passenger screening project for African airport.

Visual Defence : 05 December, 2007  (Application Story)
Visual Defence subsidiary to supply and operate a screening system for passenger security and safety at a major African airport.
Visual Defence has announced that the organisation, along with its 50% owned subsidiary, AviSecure, have signed a contract with the government of an African country expected to be worth between $USD 140 million and $USD 250 million over twenty-five years. The contract is for a Build-Operate-Transfer (BOT) passenger safety and security screening project at the country¹s principal airport. This announcement follows the contract negotiations statement made in Visual Defence's 2006 year-end financial results released in April 2007.

The airport's passenger safety and security screening BOT project encompasses risk assessment, security strategy development and complete strategy implementation including procuring, installing and integrating identified security technology, as well as hiring, training and managing airport security personnel. AviSecure will oversee project management and general airport security administration.

"Recent research indicates that the single greatest reason for sharp declines in airport passenger volume is time delays and congestion caused by multiple security lines," says Dagan Sadeh, CEO for Visual Defence. "Enhanced, centrally-managed airport security is the key to increasing passenger volume and revenue. For this airport, the joint solution between Visual Defence and AviSecure will not only provide the software platform for technology, vendor and systems convergence but will also provide the personnel and training for comprehensive risk mitigation. The airport expects that the solution will reduce threats, enable streamlined security processes and significantly reduce passenger wait time, leading to increased passenger traffic and revenue for the airport."

The project will be directly managed by AviSecure, the jointly owned subsidiary of Visual Defence and Canadian partner, SkyLink Security (Canada). AviSecure is focused on pursuing airport security outsourcing projects around the world. Following logistics and training, the current project is expected to be in full operation within six months.
