NICE Systems Ltd.—a global company headquartered in Israel—is providing the Secured Urban Transportation-European Demonstration (SECUR-ED) consortium with analysis and correlation of data from multiple sensors and systems, including audio, video, radio, geo-location and the web.
The NICE security offering addresses the needs of governments and enterprises with intent-based solutions for fighting crime and terror, by anticipating, managing and mitigating safety, security and operational risks, the company says. The offering enables the capture, analysis and correlation of data from multiple sensors and systems, including audio, video, radio, geo-location and web, providing a framework for fusing data silos into a single, holistic operational view.
The SECUR-ED consortium is comprised of 39 members, which include all the major stakeholders from across Europe. Based on the best practices that are being developed together with the project partners, SECUR-ED plans to integrate a consistent, interoperable set of technologies and processes, covering critical aspects of transport security. The result will be the proposal of new standards for mass transit, and creation of solutions and process that can be implemented in urban transport systems in cities across Europe and improve response, prevention and preparedness, NICE says.
The consortium seeks to improve pan-European mass transportation security thereby better serving the needs of European citizens and promoting the entire public transport sector, NICE says. SECUR-ED develops packaged modular solutions that are validated through local demonstrations. Those demonstrations are to serve as the product pilots that will run in Berlin; Madrid, Spain; Milan, Italy; and Paris.
