FAIRFAX, Va., Jan. 31 (UPI) — FAIRFAX, Va., Jan. 31 (UPI) — General Dynamics Information Technology has received a $27.3 million contract to upgrade airport security systems in Los Angeles.

The contract was issued by the City of Los Angeles, Los Angeles World Airports and covers the closed-circuit television and video management and storage system at the Los Angeles International Airport.

“General Dynamics has supported several critical programs for the Los Angeles Airport over the past five years,” said Edward Hudson, vice president and general manager of General Dynamics Information Technology’s Network and Mission Systems sector.

“We will leverage our knowledge of the Los Angeles Airport systems and protocols to deliver an integrated video surveillance system that enhances local and national security for more than 61 million passengers annually.”

Under the three-year award, General Dynamics will design, install, configure and integrate a CCTV, video management and storage system, which includes more than 2,500 interior and exterior cameras.

The system will integrate with the airport’s existing network as well as alarms, networks and sensors.
