USIS rolled out a new device called “SiteBoss, ” a proprietary mobile construction surveillance system for high-security government construction projects.
According to the firm, “the technology revolutionizes the methods used by Construction Surveillance Technicians (also known as CSTs) on the nation’s most secure construction sites—bringing construction security practices into the digital age. CSTs, security officers with extensive expertise in architecture and construction, have become more common over the past 25 years since the date in August 1985 when work on the U.S. embassy in Moscow was halted after a U.S. inspection team discovered numerous eavesdropping devices in the building.”
“SiteBoss offers our government clients significant benefits. It eliminates daily transcription, creating much greater efficiency and enhancing the accuracy of the data, ” said Mike Fraser, leader of the firm’s Security Solutions Division. “Security incident reports also can be attached through a process much like email, broadcasting an emerging situation to everyone connected in real time, and enabling a swift response with improved coordination.”
