Israeli Company Keeping 'Lady Liberty' Safe.


An Israeli company is helping to keep the newly reopened Statue of Liberty complex in New York City safe. Nice Systems is aiding security using its smart video solutions, Israel21c reported.

The Ra'anana-based company has been working with the U.S. Park Police responsible for the site's security, and installed its technology throughout the complex prior to its re-opening two months ago. The Nice solution uses IT-grade video networking and management, delivering images and advanced analytic applications to the park police to help protect the 117-year-old national monument.

The Statue had been closed to tourists since the terrorist attacks on Sept. 11, 2001, and was reopened amidst warnings of further terror attacks on strategic buildings and monuments in New York and Washington, D.C. Some of the new security measures include a bomb-detection device that blows a blast of air into clothing and then checks for particles of explosive residue.
