UK-based surveillance technologies provider Digital Barriers has secured a €0.28m initial contract from an undisclosed European railway operator to provide its integrated surveillance platform (ISP) for the protection of train and freight depots.

Digital Barriers’ ISP solution will offer real-time video surveillance and intrusion alerts for remote locations.

Digital Barriers CEO Zak Doffman said: "Although modest in revenue terms, this is very significant for Digital Barriers providing an opportunity for us to scale up this initial deployment and to create a proven solution we can market widely across the sector.

"Our intellectual property is unique and enables a cost-effective means of maintaining real-time coverage of vast and often hostile territories. This competitive edge, evidenced by customer traction, gives Digital Barriers reason for confidence about further use of ISP across multiple customer sectors."

"Our intellectual property is unique and enables a cost-effective means of maintaining real-time coverage of vast and often hostile territories."

The solution is expected to be delivered this year.

Designed using TVI and RDC technologies, the solution will be capable of addressing the limitations of conventional technologies, the company stated.

The ISP solution is also being used for protection of critical infrastructure, along with border protection, maritime security and law enforcement.

Digital Barriers recently collaborated with security services provider Stanley Security to deliver an innovative automated intrusion detection application to the European remote alarm monitoring market.

Under this partnership, Digital Barriers’ video analytics application SafeZone-edge will be rolled out across European customer sites, providing reliable alarm information to 14 operations centres.
