RA'ANANA, Israel, April 30 (UPI) -- Nice Systems of Israel says its Situator system will be used at a U.S. airport to enhance airport security and safety from a variety of incidents.

The Nice Situator will be used at Denver International Airport in Colorado and "will form the backbone of DIA's Integrated Airport Management System," Nice said.

The system integrator for the project is Science Applications International Corp., which will direct the design, development, and implementation of the solution.

"We are proud to have been chosen by SAIC to help Denver International Airport fulfill its vision for airport management, which centers around the enhancement of security and safety," said Nice Security Group President Yaron Tchwella. "Our extensive airport domain expertise has led to proven results across other U.S. cities and airports around the globe.

"We look forward to working with SAIC on this important project in order to help DIA take its airport management to the next level."

The Situator focuses on management of an airport's critical security systems and integrates video surveillance, GIS mapping software and access control. Its adaptive response plans enhance the handling of security-related events.

"SAIC is pleased to be working with Nice to provide Denver International Airport a highly capable and robust, mission-oriented situation management platform," SAIC Project Manager Mark Denari said. "This will lay the foundation for an Integrated Airport Management System that will serve the airport's needs for years to come."

The first phase of the management system project is expected to be completed this year.
