SuperCom wins $7M contract for electronic monitoring project in Sweden
SuperCom announced it has secured a $7M USD contract for a project with the national government of Sweden to deploy its PureSecurity Electronic Monitoring (EM) Suite. This project was formally awarded in April 2018 through a formal bid process and the contract execution has just been completed allowing for project launch. The total duration of the contract is up to eight years.
SuperCom’s PureSecurity Suite is an electronic monitoring and tracking platform featuring smart phone integration, secure communication, advanced security, anti-tamper mechanisms, fingerprint biometrics, voice communication, unique touch screens and extended battery life.
This project will cover all prison and probation electronic monitoring offender programs within Sweden and will include approximately 1,000 simultaneous enrollees and four prison facilities during the first phase of the contract, with an option to expand to additional facilities. The initial deployment will include home detention, GPS tracking of offenders, alcohol monitoring and inmate monitoring.
This is the first deployment to fully integrate traditional electronic monitoring with inmate monitoring, providing authorities continuous tracking of offenders while they are in prison and while they are outside holding facilities during short-term release periods.
“We are excited to begin work on this major contract award,” said Arie Trabelsi, SuperCom president and CEO. “Our PureSecurity Electronic Monitoring technology was chosen based on our market-leading platform and on our successful deployments of this solution date in nine other countries around the globe.”
The company expects to deploy the initial order and start generating recurring revenues in the coming months.
