Rostec’s Security Technologies and ST Electronics have signed a memorandum of understanding for cooperation in surveillance, integrated systems for security management, creation of security management situation centers besides intelligent control systems for the transport of secret and dangerous goods.

One of the key aspects of cooperation is based on the use of an advanced product from ST Electronics called AgilFence. This so-called "smart fence" is based on an innovative fiber-optic sensor cable.

A highlight of the MOU will be the setting up of a ST Electronics center in Russia, according to a Rostec statement yesterday.

“The launch of the assembly line of the cable for AgilFence at facilities of Rostec will optimize the existing safety system for Rostec Corporation and will be an important aid in the difficult task of providing comprehensive security of the corporation’s facilities and property,” said Vladimir Kapysh, CEO of Security Technologies.

ST Electronics is a subsidiary of Singapore Technologies Engineering, with which Rostec actively cooperates. ST Electronics focuses on developing innovative equipment and systems for security infrastructure.

As Nikolay Volobuev emphasized, “This signed document is very important for us and can even be described as historic. The placement of Singaporean technologies in Russia will be an important step in the development of cooperation at the level of companies, corporations, and even our states.”
