Los Angeles International Airport Completes Implementation of NICE’s Situation Management Solution, NICE Situator at New Consolidated Airport Response Coordination Center

May 25, 2011

RA’ANANA, Israel, May 25, 2011 /PRNewswire-FirstCall/ — NICE Systems
Ltd. (NASDAQ: NICE), today announced that the City of Los Angeles’ Department
of Airports (also known as Los Angeles World Airports, or LAWA) has completed
its implementation of NICE Situator, an open platform situation management
offering. LAX selected NICE Situator in 2010 for its new consolidated Airport
Response Coordination Center (ARCC) at the Los Angeles International Airport
(LAX). The LAX ARCC is the coordination hub for all LAX airport operations
and response activities.

LAX is considered to be the world’s seventh busiest airport by passenger
traffic. NICE Situator is fusing various safety and security operations
systems into a cohesive platform, analyzing and correlating data to
streamline operations and help LAX enhance its situational awareness and
response capabilities to address multiple types of operational challenges,
emergency situations, aviation incidents and security threats in real-time.
NICE Situator’s open architecture will be leveraged to integrate more than a
dozen third party systems in the new Airport Response Coordination Center.
These include video surveillance systems, access control, radio and telephony
communications systems, video walls, CCTV, CAD (computer aided dispatch), GIS
(geographic information system), emergency/mass notification, PDA servers, a
global aviation notification system, life safety/security command software,
an airport Part 139 compliance system, and NC4 (The National Center for
Crisis and Continuation Coordination) solutions for 24/7 proactive incident
information.

NICE Situator’s GIS integration will enable LAX officials to view rich,
multi-layered information on an intuitive map-based interface. The system is
capable of distilling complex sets of information into a Common Operating
Picture and then overlaying it on a map, so LAX officials will be able to get
a real-time visual of what’s going on, by simultaneously viewing the
different “plots” of an incident, whether it involves aircraft on a runway,
vehicles on an airfield, or other tracked assets in terminals or on airport
roadways. ARCC personnel are also able to interact with objects on the
map-based interface to access real-time information to respond immediately
and effectively.

“LAX is a major airport for one of the world’s most populous metropolitan
areas, and as such we encounter many daily operational challenges, from the
ordinary to the unexpected, many of which require real-time response and
impact,” said Jacqueline Anna Yaft, Deputy Executive Director of Operations
and Emergency Management for LAWA. “LAX will use NICE Situator to achieve its
vision of taking operations and incident management to the next level by
improving situational awareness and automating our response plans.”

“We believe the LAX Airport Response Coordination Center and its
innovative use of situation management technology will certainly be a model
that other airports will want to emulate,” said Yochai Rozenblat, CEO &
President, NICE Americas. “We are honored to have been chosen by LAX and look
forward to helping LAX streamline its operations and achieve greater
situational awareness. This win also reflects NICE’s leadership position in
providing security for aviation and other mass transit organizations. NICE is
committed to continue enhancing security with advanced situational awareness
capabilities for the world’s airports, other mass transit systems, city
centers, and critical facilities.”

The NICE Security Offering addresses the needs of governments and
enterprises with intent-based solutions for fighting crime and terror, by
anticipating, managing and mitigating safety, security and operational risks.
The offering enables capturing, analysis and correlation of data from
multiple sensors and systems, including audio, video, radio, geo-location and
web, providing a framework for fusing data silos into a single, holistic
operational view. NICE Security solutions empower organizations to act
effectively in real time to prevent, manage and investigate incidents,
ensuring fast resolution and debriefing, and continuous security
improvements. NICE Security solutions are deployed worldwide in
transportation systems, critical infrastructures, city centers and enterprise
campuses.
