UNDER terms of the agreement with NYC Transit’s Department of Subways, VisioWave will provide a significant portion of the security components and Siemens will install the equipment.

<?xml:namespace prefix = o ns = "urn:schemas-microsoft-com:office:office" />

The proposed VisioWave solution is well suited to mass transit needs and has fulfilled 100 per cent of the technical requirements during the intensive and wide evaluation process.

VisioWave’s SDK (Software Development Kit), will ensure both investment and obsolescence protection. The components of the VisioWave security solution include video streaming and storage, which are processed by VisioWave Evolution HD and Storage HQI RAID units.

Tyco Slashes Us350 Debt

Tyco repurchased $US350 million of its 2.75 percent convertible bonds due 2018. The company paid $US511 million cash to repurchase the bonds, reducing the underlying common shares by 15 million.

<?xml:namespace prefix = o ns = "urn:schemas-microsoft-com:office:office" />

So far in the quarter, Tyco has used $US861 million cash under a plan to strengthen its balance sheet by reducing debt and making contributions to its defined benefit plans.

Tyco expects to maintain a cash balance of at least $US2 billion as it continues to execute its plan, which could result in additional charges. Tyco repeated its forecast, first given in August, that it will earn US41 cents to US43 cents a share in the fourth quarter.

The estimate excludes restructuring and divestiture programs and charges for the early retirement of debt. Analysts have been expecting fourth-quarter earnings of 43 cents a share, according to Thomson First Call.

U.S. Crime Rates At 30-Year Low

“The rates are the lowest experienced in the last 30 years,” Justice Department statistician Shannan Catalona says in the report. “Crime rates have stabilized.” The survey is based on interviews with people in 84,000 households and shows a steady decline from 1993 until 2002 in the rates of violent crime and property crimes before those numbers leveled off in 2003.

<?xml:namespace prefix = o ns = "urn:schemas-microsoft-com:office:office" />

The new survey put the rate for property crimes of burglary, theft and motor-vehicle theft in 2003 at 163 for every 1,000 people, compared with 159 the year before. The slight increase was not considered statistically significant and a decade ago, the rate was 319 property crimes per 1,000 people, the study says.

The number of victims of violent crimes for 2003 was 23 per 1,000 people, down from 50 in 1993.

High Volume Optic Loss Theory

The theory describes light pulse dynamics in optical fibers and explains how an interplay of noise, line imperfections and pulse collisions can lead to the deterioration of information in optical fiber lines.

<?xml:namespace prefix = o ns = "urn:schemas-microsoft-com:office:office" />

It’s thought that the theory will help to enhance the performance necessary for high-speed optical communication systems supporting CCTV, video on demand and ultra-broadband Internet, and the research has helped establish a new field of inquiry -- the statistical physics of optical communications.

SonyS Biodegradeable Smart Card

A biodegradeable smart card could be useful as an access control visitor credential if costs could be reduced significantly. The smart card is made from polyactic acid mixed with special additives. But despite its construction chips embedded between sheets of the plastic can still transmit signals.

<?xml:namespace prefix = o ns = "urn:schemas-microsoft-com:office:office" />

The smart cards are also as strong as their oil-based plastic counterparts. Sony and Mitsubishi Plastics worked together to develop the material for the smart card. It’s unclear when the product may hit the market, due to the cost to make the biodegradable plastic.

Viisage Wins Us10 Million Contract

It’s a contract worth between $US6-$10 million. The CAC program, which has more than four million users across the DoD, is the largest and most advanced use of smart cards currently deployed by the <?xml:namespace prefix = st1 ns = "urn:schemas-microsoft-com:office:smarttags" />U.S. government.

The selection follows testing by 3 nationally recognized commercial laboratories, EDS, L3 and Exponent, under the direction of Telos Corporation. Viisage will provide a solution to the DMDC, which is expected to include 1,700 Toppan CP400 printers as the fixed site desktop printers, consumables and services, for the production of secure identification cards throughout the Real-time Automated Personnel Identification System (RAPIDS). This solution employs secure and counterfeit-resistant card printing system, including pigment ink technology, which resists fading of images and barcodes, even under the most severe conditions.
