April 16 '08: Duos Technology has announced a new contract which would increase security and surveillance operations for the Amtrak and CSX Rail System running through Washington DC. In the press release, Duos said the $1 million contract would "expand its existing intelligent video and security sensor system along a segment" of train track running through the capital.
The contract was awarded to Duos by Epsilon Systems, the primary contractor who had partnered with DHS. "The project includes a comprehensive virtual security buffer zone within which any moving object is detected, analyzed and authenticated," the press release read.In earlier partnerships, Duos worked with the Baptist Health Enterprises hospital system to deploy over forty digital surveillance systems at its various facilities. "These systems provide a critical means of securing the organization's premises and real estate holding, as well as protecting patients, staff, and the general public," Duos said in a press release. The new system Duos is implementing for Amtrak and CSX will be capable of processing information from radio frequency ID chips as well as a host of other data. "Data from the system is monitored by Amtrak and CSX Police, as well as made available to other federal, district and local authorities and agencies," the Duos press release read.
