Rolta ties-up with Augusta Systems for maritime security

Mumbai: IT major, Rolta, on Wednesday said it has inked an agreement with Augusta Systems to incorporate Augusta EdgeFrontier middleware for enhancing maritime and homeland security solutions.

Augusta Systems is a provider of technologies that power the intelligent convergence of devices, systems and networks.

Through the partnership, Rolta will be able to incorporate Augusta EdgeFrontier middleware for use in security, defence and other geospatial applications where sensor integration and fusion are essential elements in providing situational awareness, the company said in a statement here.

EdgeFrontier is field-proven and has been successfully deployed by Government organisations with security mandates, such as the United States Department of the defence and multiple public safety and port management agencies in the US and other North American jurisdictions, it said.

Rolta’s maritime and homeland security solutions provide users with a highly configurable, security-based, situation-awareness platform, which allows security operations personnel, command and control centers, intelligence analysts and others to collaboratively interpret information.

By leveraging EdgeFrontier, Rolta will be able to rapidly integrate diverse types of sensors and systems for public safety, port and border security and defense operations which require sensor and system technologies.

"Security and defence agencies have found EdgeFrontier to be the ideal platform for building and managing applications featuring data and control functions from diverse devices and systems,“ Augusta Systems’ president and chief executive officer, Patrick Esposito, said.

“We are very pleased to partner with Rolta to advance homeland security, defence and geospatial solutions," Esposito said.
