Elbit Systems has been awarded $19 million from the Maldonado District Administration in Uruguay to provide security camera coverage over an area of 2,000km2.

The Safe District project will span across six municipal authorities in the Maldonado district, including the Punta Del Este tourist resort. It will take two years to complete the contract.

The project will include more than 1,000 cameras and sensors, including vehicle traffic control, laid out at strategic standpoints. The collected information will be transferred to a control centre, which will include ‘command and control’ (C2) systems with unique analytics capabilities. The sensors and cameras infrastructure will allow the operators of the control room to obtain real-time data from the field and alert law enforcement officials, including logistics and emergency personnel, in conjunction with the nature of the event.
