SAIC to update Miami gate security

San Diego-based Science Applications International Corp. (SAIC) said the Port of Miami has chosen its security and transportation technology business unit to be systems integrator to upgrade the port's security gate facilities.

The company said its cargo gate system project will include software, hardware, upgrading existing network communications and integrating port security systems.

Neither the port nor SAIC gave a dollar value to the contract.

"This program will support the redevelopment of the Port of Miami's dynamic cargo operations hub," SAIC said.

SAIC said its systems design includes Vehicle and Cargo Inspection Systems (VACIS) gamma-ray scanning technology, vehicle identification technology, weigh scales and driver transaction technology, which includes card readers, VoIP camera, microphone and speaker units.

Under the terms of the contract, the gate configuration will streamline the port's security gate operations by increasing security, expediting traffic flow, validating driver and equipment missions and enhancing remote command center capabilities.
