Russia Ready to Export 'Safe City' System Used During 2014 Olympics
Russia's state arms trader Rosoboronexport is set to enter talks with Indonesia, Malaysia and some other countries to supply its "Safe City" system, which enables real-time situation monitoring in cities and helps manage field services.
Similar systems operate in more than 80 cities around Russia; the system was used to provide security during the 2014 Sochi Winter Olympics.
"The presentation of the Russian security system at the ASEAN conference in Langkawi, Malaysia, has generated substantive interest and we are counting on practical results," said the deputy head of Rosoboronexport Sergei Goreslavsky. "We are counting on bilateral talks with Malaysia, Indonesia, the Philippines and other countries."
He also stressed that the customer will be able to choose whether to obtain the system as a whole or some of its selected elements.
The complex automated system (CAS) Safe City initiative is focused on mitigating security, safety and operational risks.
It is the first large-scale Russian IT system based on locally-produced hardware and software. The system ensures the efficient interaction of task forces, as well as the forecasting and prevention of incidents and criminal offenses.
