The signing which happened at Enster Electronics manufacturing facility in Shenzhen China earlier this month is the same facility which houses the final development and production of the Demfas Aerosystems developed CCTV systems.
The MOU which includes funding for 3,000 CCTV systems which will enable Demfas Aerosystems produce and install the CCTV at a cost free price in Nigeria as a test benchmark and also part of the funding expected to be paid to Demfas Aerosystems includes a licence fee for the development of a network encryption security which will enhance Enster electronics products.
The development of the CCTV systems which began in August 2017 has led to the development of 17 prototypes with 12 failed and 5 successful productions. The CCTV systems which boast of smart and advance AI based features such as licence plate recognition to read Nigerian number plates, face recognition capabilities(human facial feature extraction, real-time facial snapshots), advanced video motion detection, metadata collection and analysis, people counting, image search, facial flow, traffic incident detection, traffic data statistics and intruder detection was designed to fit and perfectly address the security situations in Nigeria.
The MOU is expected to commence after Demfas Aerosystems files for a patent right covering some components on itsinetwork security encryption which is needed to support the licence of network encryption to Enster electronics.
