On 24th May 2019, the company announced that it had entered a US$3.5 million deal with India. The company’s FFT Aura Ai-2 product had been chosen as part of a perimeter security upgrade program in India. The program would cover major air bases across India, as a result of its intensified security environment. The contract is set to begin in Q1 FY20 at 23 military airbases. It would be for a period ranging between 18 to 24 months.
The security system would be integrated and inclusive of “smart fences” where the Aura Ai-2 would be installed along with CCTV cameras, motion detectors, infra-red devices, anti-penetration along with thermal and other sensors. This would further be supported by surveillance devices and drones.
In a competitive on-site trial, Aura Ai-2 underwent tests with other intrusion detection technologies for instantaneous buried and fence straddled applications. The results of this test showcased that it was the only solution bearing the capability to meet the customer’s strict detection requisites like fence cuts and climb, vehicle, walker and simultaneous events. The test also met with the integration prerequisites and depicted low nuisance alarm levels.
Commenting on the contract, the company’s CEO Scott Basham stated that the contract is a depiction of the company’s powerful platform and continuous improvements being made since 2017. The Aura Ai-2 is now a market leader with its characteristics and offerings.
In its Investor MoD Presentation from May 2019, the company had stated that AVA along with SFO, had finalised contractual terms with India and SFO had received and formally accepted the Purchase Order from India.
