YAHUD, Israel, May 31, 2011 /PRNewswire-FirstCall/ -- Magal Security Systems, Ltd. (NASDAQ: MAGS, TASE: MAGS) today announced that it has signed a $35.5 million contract for a turnkey project, to provide a fully integrated security system, covering multiple sites, for the African Cup of Nations Football Championship to be held in January 2012 in West Africa.

The project will cover football grounds, the stadium and the Olympic villages for the participating teams. The full solution will be networked and integrated into several command and control centers by Fortis - Magal's state of the art Physical Security Information Management (PSIM) system. A built in hierarchical structure will enable control of several smaller centers by a main regional control center.

The security solution includes Magal's newest technologies, such as Barricade II - an innovative fence mounted locating sensor and a full CCTV solution with multiple surveillance cameras and sophisticated IVA (Intelligent Video Analytics) capabilities. Additionally, various types of gates with access control, X-Ray screening devices for visitors, intercom and public announcement systems will complement the full solution.

Mr. Jacob Perry, Chairman of the Board of Magal S3, commented: "This is the largest project in our history and both represents a highly significant business achievement and an acceleration in Magal's growth trajectory.
