Gatekeeper Completes C$6.3M Contract for NTSB Compliant Digital Video Recorders on Trains
Abbotsford, BC – November 10, 2020 – Gatekeeper Systems Inc. (‘Gatekeeper’ or the ‘Company’) (TSX-V: GSI) (OTC: GKPRF) (FSE: 1GK) a leading provider of intelligent video solutions for public transport and smart cities, is pleased to announce the final completion of a previously-announced C$6.3 million contract for the design and supply of digital video recorders (DVRs) and crash hardened memory modules (CHMMs) that record and protect operating evidence in rail transit applications.
The DVRs and CHMMs have continuous-recording capabilities that can be used to verify crew actions and train operating conditions, which greatly aids accident investigations in the same way black boxes are used in the airline industry. They are compliant with the recommendation made by the National Transportation Safety Board (NTSB), which calls upon the Federal Transit Administration to install crash-resistant inward- and outward-facing cameras and continuous recorders in all rail transit vehicles.
Doug Dyment, CEO of Gatekeeper, commented: “We are enormously proud of this accomplishment and our team’s successful execution. We have successfully completed a meaningful rail transit safety contract for the sixth largest transit authority in the US. This demonstrates our ability to design and deliver large-scale digital video recording solutions needed by transit authorities as they seek to comply with NTSB recommendations to improve rail transit safety. We believe that all transit trains and buses should be equipped with video and event recording devices to improve safety and aid in accident investigations, in the same way black boxes are used in the airline industry.”
The C$6.3 million contract was initially announced on October 9, 2019 and the Company estimates that approximately C$1.56 million of this contract has been billed during its fiscal Q1 which ends November 30, 2020.
