Gunnebo Wins Strategic Order to Supply ImmSec to Bahrain International Airport

STOCKHOLM, Sweden--(BUSINESS WIRE)--Regulatory News:

Gunnebo security group (STO:GUNN) has signed an order to supply high security immigration gates, the ImmSec, at the Bahrain International Airport. The order was received since Gunnebo's existing installations of immigrations systems in both the UK and Japan proved decisive.

ImmSec is a highly secure and efficient control system that permits only one person at a time to pass through the gate. The initial order is for four trial-lanes of ImmSec into which smart identification card, fingerprint biometric reader and two LCD-monitors will be integrated. Furthermore, Gunnebo’s unique system for single person and left items detection, TDAR, will be integrated. The order was received in cooperation with Securicore, Gunnebo’s local partner in Bahrain.

"We believe that the ImmSec has a considerable potential at entrance-points that need to combine a rapid flow of people with a high measure of security, as for instance immigration control”, says Göran Gezelius, President and CEO Gunnebo AB. "All biometric identification requires the ID-documents to be pre-programmed, but in return it allows extremely rapid passage at integration points and control stations for those who have biometric travel documentation." Installation of the first four gates will start in September 2008 and the order has a potential to be expanded to include the whole airport.

Bahrain’s government has introduced Smart Card Identification to facilitate daily activities and integrate all citizen services via one platform. In connection to this project, the government decided to equip Bahrain International Airport with Electronic Immigration Gates. This means that Bahrain can be the first country to allow its citizens to migrate and immigrate the country with automated, biometric immigration procedures.

ImmSec is Gunnebo’s unique system for automated immigration at airports, ports and land borders. The detection system identifies single and multiple configurations of people. Luggage, infants and children are also detected by the system. The integrated overhead detection system verifies single person occupancy and persons fraudulently attempting to violate immigration security protocols.

Gunnebo AB (publ) discloses the information provided herein pursuant to the Securities Markets Act and/or the Financial Instruments Trading Act. The information was submitted for publication at 08.01 CET on July 22, 2008.

Gunnebo's security group has an annual turnover of MEUR 760 and 6,700 employees. We are suppliers of integrated security solutions for bank, retail and sites in need of high security protection. Our experience and presence makes your world safer.
