Singapore, 25 July, 2008 – Mainboard-listed Stratech Systems Limited (“Stratech”) today announced the award of a contract to deploy its fourth-generation intelligent Vehicle Access Control System (iVACS® Gen4) with the United Nations in Latin America. This is Stratech’s second installation with the United Nations, and it marks the entry into the Latin American homeland security market.

Powered by Stratech’s proprietary intelligent Vision technologies, iVACS® Gen4 is capable of automated vehicle (and driver/passenger) surveillance and access control through integration with vehicle licence plate recognition, people counter, weight sensor, and barrier system. The state-of-the-art iVACS® Gen4 scans the undercarriages of all types of vehicles, delivering unsurpassed image quality. It is an intelligent under vehicle surveillance system capable of automated foreign object and abnormality detection. The iVACS® Gen4 “network intelligence” feature also allows multiple iVACS® sites to be connected for effective and centralised access control.

“The winning of this contract affirms our technology leadership in intelligent Vision and clearly shows that Stratech stands amongst the market leaders in world-class technologies for homeland security,” said Dr. David K.M. Chew, Executive Chairman of Stratech.

“iVACS® Gen4 can be applied for other industries, for example, to aid vehicle manufacturers in their inspection process, and to provide undercarriage inspection for trains. Our strategy going forward is to actively market, sell and deploy iVACS® Gen4 through our valued partners. The potential of iVACS® Gen4 is tremendous and we are looking forward to winning more market segments with our partners,” adds Dr. Chew.

Stratech’s homeland security technologies have been deployed in Singapore, the US, Europe, Asia (including the Middle East), Australia and now, Latin America.
