SAIC to improve cargo gate system at Port of Miami

Science Applications International Corp. will upgrade the Port of Miami's security gate facilities, officials of the San Diego company said today.

SAIC's Security and Transportation Technology unit will perform the work, which includes installing software and hardware and upgrading the existing network communications and systems integration to the port's security system. The company declined to release the terms or value of the contract.

SAIC will streamline the port's security gate operations by simultaneously increasing security and expediting traffic flow, validating all drivers and equipment, and improving remote command-center capabilities, according to company officials.

SAIC will implement its Vehicle and Cargo Inspection Systems gamma-ray scanning technology, vehicle identification technology and weigh scales. SAIC's design also includes driver transaction technology that combines card readers; voice-over-IP camera, microphone and speaker units; and other transaction processing technologies. All of this will be integrated into the port's security information system, according to the company.

SAIC was chosen for its experience integrating technologies at terminals worldwide, said William Kelly, SAIC senior vice president and manager of the Security and Transportation Technology unit.
