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

Working with one of FFTs Global System Integration partners, this complex project is comprised of multiple perimeters totaling almost 50km.  The selected perimeter intrusion detection system was required to seamlessly integrate into existing 3rd party security systems, and had to operate in an environmentally demanding high security environment.    An all fiber optic solution from FFT was selected as the most appropriate to protect this prestigious and critical national transport infrastructure.

Commenting on the project award, FFTs Regional Director, Mr. 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 fiber 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 recently in the Middle East including a 20km Sea Port perimeter project which utilizes 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 recognized that a solution from FFT can cover up to 80km from a single location, requires no power in the field, is well proven in the 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 fiber optic based intrusion detection system.
