ARINC to expand Maryland MTA surveillance

Posted on March 27, 2009

ARINC Inc. is deploying video cameras and advanced surveillance software at an additional 14 Maryland Transit Administration (MTA) passenger rail stations under the second phase of a video surveillance contract partially funded by the U.S. Department of Homeland Security.

 

The company completed work on 11 station sites and a monitoring facility in October 2008, under a Phase 1 contract. The surveillance project enhances MTA security and public safety on the Baltimore Metro Subway, Baltimore Light Rail system and the MARC train service.

 

ARINC is responsible for the overall design, integration and installation of the new surveillance system, which includes remotely controlled cameras that can focus on rail station platforms, equipment and surrounding areas.

 

The monitoring system includes multi-screen workstations that provide situational awareness to operators via a graphical view of the MTA system. From the graphical view, operators can choose camera views for monitoring specific platforms or areas of interest.
