Astrata Group Incorporated, an international provider of innovative location-based IT services and solutions, has announced that the Singapore Civil Defense Force (the “SCDF”) has awarded Astrata (Singapore) Pte Ltd, an exclusive multi-million dollar contract as part of its plan to regulate the movement of all vehicles carrying hazardous materials on Singapore’s roads. The contract is for software and hardware integrated into a comprehensive tracking, monitoring, and sophisticated control system with features and capabilities unsurpassed in the market. The contract was signed in December and deliveries are scheduled to begin during the first quarter of 2005.
In response to the demanding and innovative requirements in Singapore, Astrata’s Research and Development team for Homeland Security Products developed the Astrata Geo-Spatial Information Technology System, which combines the Astrata Sirius-Lite (known as “Astrata-GLP” in the U.S.), the fleet management and vehicle real-time tracking device. The contract also includes a new state-of-the-art Rapid Deployment Unit (RDU), a derivative of Sirius-Lite, which can be attached within seconds to vehicles entering Singapore.
