China – China Information Security Technology, Inc., (“China Information Security,” “CIST” or the “Company”), a leading provider of Information Security and 3S (Geographic Information Systems — GIS, Global Positioning Systems — GPS and Remote Sensing — RS) services in China, today announced that the Company has been awarded a contract to construct the Intelligent Anti-Stowaway System (“IAS System”) for the Shenzhen General Station of Exit and Entry Frontier Inspection (the “Shenzhen General Station”), at a total contract value of US$2.3 million. The contract is expected to be completed by the end of 2008.
The IAS System is a follow-on order to the Intelligent Border Control System (“IBC System”) that CIST previously developed and constructed for the Shenzhen General Station. The IAS System will enhance the existing IBC System by providing additional layers of real-time monitoring features to the central command center covering the Shenzhen General Station and all its subordinate ports. In addition, the IAS System can be interconnected with the National Border Monitoring Platform of Exit & Entry Administration, Ministry of Public Security of PRC.
The upcoming Beijing Olympic Games is expected to bring increased passenger traffic through all China’s ports, creating the need for a highly efficient immigration clearing process nationwide. The combination of CIST’s IBC System and IAS System will enable faster and more accurate checkpoint processing of passenger traffic, while at the same time helping to safeguard borders from stowaways and greatly improving the overall efficiency and effectiveness of border control management at the Shenzhen General Station.
“We are pleased to construct the IAS System for the Shenzhen General Station,” commented Mr. Jiang Huai Lin, CEO of China Information Security. “This win is one of a series of follow-on orders we continue to receive from the Shenzhen General Station and other ports in Shenzhen and is a solid demonstration of our strong technological capabilities and successful implementation record. We expect that the Shenzhen General Station will serve as a live demonstration of technological advancement and efficiency for other ports in China.”
