The Port Authority of New York & New Jersey (PANYNJ) has awarded Kapsch TrafficCom a four-year, USD 8.8m contract to install agency-wide transportation management software (ATMS), the company said.
The contract consists of a four-year base term followed by two additional one-year optional support periods. Powered by Kapsch´s DYNAC software, the new system will enable the Authority to manage ITS assets at its bridges, tunnels, aviation and port facilities, and the PATH rail transit system from any of its individual facility operations control centers and the PA-AOC.
The new ATMS will help the Authority improve operational efficiency, agency-wide visibility of travel conditions, enhance regional transportation coordination, and better manage its critical transportation-related assets.
Kapsch will merge 21 independent traffic and facility management data systems into a single enterprise DYNAC-based ATMS. Deployed in redundant data centers to improve reliability, maintainability and security, the new ATMS will replace independent legacy systems with an agency-wide, next generation architecture. All Authority assets will be able to be managed from any individual facility as well as the PA-AOC, providing agency-wide situational awareness.
