Future Fibre Technologies Wins Multi-Million Dollar Airport Security Contract

Future Fibre Technologies (FFT) has announced that the company has been awarded a multi-million dollar contract to supply its world-leading fibre-optic perimeter intrusion detection systems for a major new civilian airport in the Middle East.

Working with one of FFT’s global system integration partners, this complex project is comprised of multiple perimeters totalling almost 50km. The selected perimeter intrusion detection system was required to seamlessly integrate into existing third party security systems, and had to operate in an environmentally demanding high security environment. An all fibre-optic solution from FFT was selected as the most appropriate to protect this prestigious and critical national transport infrastructure.

Commenting on the project award, FFT’s regional director, Adam Wilding-Webb said: "The presence that FFT has in the Middle East coupled with the unrivalled local sales and technical support we offer to our customers and partners has enabled us to win projects such as this. Combined with our advanced technology and flexible design approach, an all fibre solution from FFT represents the pinnacle in perimeter intrusion detection in today’s market."

This most recent project comes off the back of several other significant FFT project wins in the Middle East, including a 20km sea port perimeter project which utilises the FFT secure fence system, an 18km oil refinery, and a 9km offshore gas storage facility.

In each of these demanding projects the end users clearly recognised that a solution from FFT can cover up to 80km from a single location, requires no power in the field, is well-proven in harsh Middle Eastern environments, and can easily integrate with many advanced security management systems. FFT has exceeded the expectations as to what can be achieved with a fibre-optic based intrusion detection system.
