Law Enforcement Associates Awarded Contract for Multiple Under-Vehicle Inspection Systems From U.S. Navy
Raleigh, NC--(Marketwire) - Law Enforcement Associates Corporation (LEA) (OTCBB: LAWE), the largest U.S.-based developer and manufacturer of undercover surveillance equipment, today announced that the U.S. Navy has placed an order for multiple Under-Vehicle Inspection Systems (UVIS). The systems will be incorporated into the security infrastructure of a major domestic military base. Due to the nature of the customer and its use of the products, additional information about the order was not provided.
The UVIS is a sophisticated surveillance tool that utilizes high-resolution cameras encased within a ground-based ramp system. As vehicles pass over the ramp, real-time video imagery of the car's undercarriage is transmitted to a nearby video screen, which is monitored by specially trained security personnel.
Paul Feldman, president of LEA, said, "Our traditional UVIS and portable UVIS Swift product lines continue to generate significant interest from both domestic and international customers. We currently are pursuing several other UVIS order opportunities, and also are seeing increased quoting activity and order volume across most of our other surveillance product lines."
