YAHUD, Israel, 3 Aug. 2010. Magal Security Systems Ltd.--an international provider of electronics security, safety, and site management solutions, including smart barriers and fences, fence-mounted detectors, and virtual gates--has won over the past few weeks roughly $5.5 million in orders for homeland-security projects in Israel and worldwide.

The orders from Israel are related to homeland security and won from existing customers for new sites and expansions, as well as follow-on support. Two orders are to protect overseas critical infrastructure: One is for a taut wire solution for the perimeter of a large air force base in Western Europe, while the second is for a comprehensive solution for a nuclear reactor in North America. The project in North America includes Magal's leading PIDS (Perimeter Intrusion Detection System) buried cable technology and Dreambox, Magal's outdoor video management system with Intelligent Video Analytics (IVA).

Eitan Livneh, president and CEO of Magal S3, notes: "These new orders prove that investments in the protection of strategic homeland security assets by governments continue to be stable, and we are using our expertise in this area to win more business. Our strategy of focusing on regions, in which we have strong local presence, where we can leverage our previous successes, has allowed us to further enhance our position in these regions and to strengthen our long term relationships with the customers."
