The company will be taking care of the temple security after installing their advanced security machines at three newly inaugurated airports including Ayodhya Airport, Surat Airport, and Tiruchi Airport.

The checkpoints within the temple grounds are equipped with 11 advanced security devices, including X-ray baggage scanners and under-vehicle scanning systems to ensure safety of the visitors.

The large hi-tech machines at Ayodhya Temple have advanced area scan imaging technology, coupled with screening machines for medium and large baggages.

Apart from spotting prohibited items through AI drive machines and sending real-time alerts to operators, the additional features include threat image projection, central console and video management. 

With the anticipated large crowd and the presence of high-profile individuals at the inauguration ceremony, the combined technology ensures a robust security framework and can detect concealed weapons and contraband items.

The company offers artificial intelligence and machine learning-based physical security,  surveillance and traffic monitoring systems, as well as junction enforcement solutions which are designed and developed in India.
