Local company SCI USA was selected to be part of the top security measures taken to protect the more than one million attendees of the Atlanta Super Bowl last Sunday. MARTA security professionals deployed 10 MAST (Mobile Advanced Safety Towers) units in the surrounding areas of the Mercedes Benz Stadium as part of their security surveillance operations. 

SCI USA was the recent recipient of the 2018 Chattanooga Technology Council Early Innovator Award for their state-of-the-art Mobile Advanced Safety Tower (MAST) that can be deployed independently in almost any location using solar energy and Commercial LTE Networks.

Stuart Bostock, SCI USA president, said, “We are very pleased to be recognized as a provider of world-class surveillance technology – and to be able to debut this technology at the Super Bowl. We have worked hard to improve on industry standards and last year began the design and development of MAST to answer the need for a more sophisticated and flexible surveillance system for property protection, public safety and large crowd gatherings. We have found a way to integrate the most advanced safety and surveillance technology with intelligent software and analytics. Our MAST units are aesthetically crafted to fit into any environment and designed to be customizable as well as more robust and user friendly than comparable units.”

Chattanooga was introduced to the concept of this type of technology last year at Riverbend through SCI USA’s trial of a similar European model positioned on the upper deck of the Southern Belle. “Although successful, we were displeased with the limitations of that particular surveillance unit and decided we could design something more relevant to the U.S. market with a number of increased advantages and capabilities. It took several months of research and development, but we are now satisfied that we have an excellent mobile surveillance solution.”

Security Centres International (USA) Limited is a national security and life-safety integrator specializing in smart technology and customized problem solving for governments, national security agencies, law enforcement and business. It manufactures its MAST system in Chattanooga and utilizes local businesses in an effort to promote and support the talent pool of Chattanooga. The MAST systems are a uniquely robust and a multi-function solution specifically designed to support public safety, law enforcement, government agencies, security operations, utilities, energy, infrastructure and commercial customers, said officials.

Roy Exum: My Garden This June

On this, the first day of a new month, I pause during my monthly trip to the garden as I mourn for my country.

By this I mean we were helpless to the virus – there was no way to stop it and therefore we must endure. Criminal rioting is altogether different. ... (click for more)
