• Awarded contract by the US Government
  • Providing Homeland Security technologies to a multi-billion dollar market
  • Currently engaged in operational pilot for key US Government Agency
SINGAPORE, March 28, 2005—Following the two contracts from Thailand and the UK announced on 14th March 2005, Singapore Exchange Mainboard-listed intelligent Vision ("iV") technologies company, Stratech Systems Limited ("Stratech") has been awarded a contract to deliver its Homeland Security technologies, in particular its intelligent Vehicle Access Control Systems, iVACS™ to the US Government. Although this contract does not significantly impact the Group’s financials, the contract marks a major breakthrough into the US technology market.

In the past 24 months, Stratech has been aggressively bringing its intelligent Vision technologies to the US, having undergone tests and evaluations with major US Government Agencies. Stratech has time and again demonstrated the competitive advantages of its technologies. iVACS™, for example, is acknowledged to be the next generation fully automated vehicle, driver/passenger surveillance and access control system delivering unsurpassed image quality, automatic foreign object/abnormality detection and network intelligence.

Following our showing at a four company “shoot-out” organized by another major government agency end January this year, we are currently running an operational pilot in its headquarters in Washington, DC .

“This is the breakthrough that we’ve been working towards,” said Dr. David K.M. Chew, Executive Chairman. “It is an important step towards achieving our vision to be a leader in providing advanced technologies to the world.”
