Restrata: Creating a safe city in Iraq

bismayah cityBismayah City, Iraq. (Image source: Restrata)Restrata was selected to design, develop and install the first of seven multi-million dollar, high security checkpoints that will protect the entrances to the Bismayah City, Iraq, an US$8bn dollar project, creating 100,000 housing units south of Baghdad, designed as a self-contained ‘safe city’ where all entry and exit into the area is controlled

The project brief required the design and construction of a system for the screening of all vehicles, small and large, and personnel, entering the city. The resulting integrated Vehicle Screening and Checkpoint Control Solution on the first checkpoint, allows for the detection of IEDs, weapons, explosives and other contraband being transported by vehicles into the new safe city construction site 

Restrata's experience with surveillance, access command and control systems allowed us to design and implement successful solutions.
