SAN ANTONIO, 14 August 2006. MDI Inc., a manufacturer of Unified Technology solutions for the security industry, and RAE Systems, a global provider of rapidly deployable sensor networks that enable customers to identify safety and security threats, have entered into a business partnership agreement.
Under the agreement, RAE Systems will integrate its chemical and radiation product lines -- including AreaRAE, RAEWatch, RAEGuard, GammaRAE II, and the new Aegison video solutions -- into MDI's ONE Unified Technology platform.
The combined solution will enable clients to correlate chemical and radioactive threat data along with their global security command and control infrastructure that currently includes access, alarm, video, voice, identity management, facility controls, business applications, and employee databases.
By increasing situational awareness on the ONE platform, events triggered by RAE Systems' state-of-the-art sensor technology can be collected, analyzed and responded to preemptively from a centralized location to minimize risk and exposure levels.
"By adding RAE Systems' industry leading multi-sensor and video technologies into the ONE platform, we will create a unified high performance solution that meets the specific safety and security needs of public venues, nuclear medicine, petrochemical facilities, air and seaports, homeland security and military markets," states J. Collier Sparks, president and CEO of MDI Inc.
