Delaware City DE (SPX) Oct 18, 2013
A Boeing security network, delivered just three weeks after it was ordered, is now helping protect a critical refinery complex along the Delaware River.
Watchstander Integrated Security Solutions, composed of intelligence, surveillance, and reconnaissance sensors and systems, is providing continual real-time monitoring of waterways around the Delaware City Refinery southwest of Philadelphia. The 5,000-acre site is one of the largest on the U.S. East Coast.
"Watchstander has already been successfully deployed with federal, state and local agencies, including Delaware County [Pa.]," said Mike Hettmann, director of Tactical Intelligence, Surveillance and Reconnaissance for Boeing.
"That proven technology and experience allowed us to deliver a cost-effective solution in only three weeks."
Watchstander is one of Boeing's many C4ISR capabilities that provide a seamless flow of information - from collection to aggregation to analysis - for customers' enduring need for situational awareness. The breadth of these capabilities can be experienced online at www.boeing.com/advertising/c4isr.
