New traffic safety order from the Middle East
The Qatar Ministry of Interior once again orders speed enforcement systems from Jenoptik.
To further improve traffic safety in the Middle East, Jenoptik and its local partner Telco will deliver more than 120 speed measurement systems to the Qatar Ministry of Interior in the course of this year. The order value is in the single-digit million euro range.
As of the second quarter 2018, Jenoptik will deliver its radar-based TraffiStar S390 measurement systems for stationary speed enforcement to Telco, including nearly 100 TraffiTower 2.0 and about 20 TraffiCompact housings. The scope of delivery also comprises six radar-based mobile speed measurement systems on tripod.
Traffic safety technology made by Jenoptik has been successfully deployed in the Middle East, e.g., in Oman, Saudi Arabia, Kuwait and Jordan for many years. Qatar has received more than 350 Jenoptik systems so far. Most recently, in November 2017, Jenoptik announced a traffic safety order from Kuwait for combined fixed and average speed control.
As an integrated photonics group, Jenoptik divides its activities into three segments: Optics & Life Science, Mobility as well as Defense & Civil Systems.
The Traffic Solutions unit in the Mobility segment develops, manufactures and distributes components, systems and services which contribute towards greater road traffic safety throughout the world. The product portfolio comprises comprehensive systems relating to all aspects of road traffic, such as speed measurement and red light monitoring systems, OEM (Original Equipment Manufacturer) products and systems for the detection of traffic violations. Expertise extends to measuring average speed over a defined section of road (section speed control) and automated number plate recognition (ANPR). Thanks to the digital combination of several sensor technologies with software and data management, Jenoptik is also a new systems supplier for truck toll monitoring on federal highways in Germany. In the service field we cover every aspect of the traffic safety process chain.
