Singapore’s ST Electronics will issue to Russian company SIBER an exclusive license to distribute its AgilFence perimeter intrusion detection system in Russia and in the Eurasian Economic Union.
Known as the 'smart fence' technology, this system is based on the use of an innovative fiber-optic cable.
The system has been employed to secure Changi Airport for several years and has repeatedly proved its effectiveness.
The Russian holding company will also obtain a license to complete the assembly of the AgilFence cable in this country under the brand name SIBER as required by the manufacturing procedures in the Singaporean company and to subsequently reverse engineer the entire process at Rostec's facilities, an agreement to this effect was signed between the two companies in Singapore on November 18.
"The signing of this agreement means a step change in our cooperation. Now we are in a position to move on from plan discussions and plans to undertaking real projects that will benefit both sides. I am commending our partners from ST Electronics for the joint work and I am positive that AgilFence will open up new opportunities and prospects to us," commented SIBER's Chief Executive Officer Vladimir Kalysh.
Pursuant to the agreement, ST Electronics will provide training to Russian personnel and will furnish all required assistance and support that would enable the holding company to install, maintain and service the system for its clients.
Rostecs Security Technologies and ST Electronics have signed a memorandum of understanding for cooperation in surveillance, integrated systems for security management, creation of security management situation centers besides intelligent control systems for the transport of secret and dangerous goods. One of the key aspects of cooperation is based on the use of an advanced product from ST Electronics called AgilFence
