US firms DVTel and Mass Electric Construction, German firm Siemens Industry and Israeli firm MATE will design an electronic surveillance and detection system for the US’ Delaware River Joint Toll Bridge Commission (DRJTBC).

The companies will design, build, install, integrate and maintain the system that will include video surveillance, intelligent video, building access control, intrusion detection, a central control centre and communications systems for video and data transmissions.

Including over 300 cameras and 50 access points, the system will send real-time alarms to help operators increase their awareness and response time to incidents, to cut traffic congestion and improve safety.

The project integrator Siemens will supply its SiPass access control system, DVTel will supply its intelligent Security Operations Center as the command and control software and MATE’s Behavior Watch solution will help improve the Commission’s ability to respond to incidents.

Mass Electric is the prime contractor for the project.

The DRJTBC is a bi-state transportation agency that owns, operates, and maintains 20 vehicular and pedestrian bridges along 140 miles of the Delaware River between Pennsylvania and New Jersey.
