NEW YORK, Oct. 26, 2010 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- TIE Technologies, Inc. (Pink Sheets:TTCS), who operates a portfolio of Homeland Security assets focused on natural and man caused disaster intervention, driven by proprietary smart logistics, telemetrics and advanced IT solutions, today announced that its Smart Environmental Logistics division has initiated work on the smart levee project for the State of Louisiana. 

The pilot installation will monitor a one mile stretch of the levee that protects the city of New Orleans from a breach caused by natural or man caused disaster.   The system will collect critical 'levee status data' from monitoring sensors installed throughout the flood control system. Real time information is transmitted via satellite uplink to an interactive data center to advise and warn of any potential problems or actual levee failure that could forerun catastrophic consequences.  

"The Smart Levee System will provide the communications infrastructure necessary to prevent the unnecessary loss of life and property. TIE is focused on providing environmental disaster intervention and remediation solutions through our Smart Environmental Logistics division," Mark Marangella, Executive Vice President of TIE Technologies, Inc., commented. "We look forward to not only the success of this initial project, but also the support and focus of the U.S. Army Corps of Engineers to address the requirement for providing a smart solution at a national level which consists of over 4000 miles of critical levees." Mr. Marangella went on to say, "We anticipate the smart levee project and the smart environmental logistics product line will potentially create sales ramping up from $500 thousand in the fiscal year ended June 2011, to $6 million in 2012 and 15 million in 2013 fiscal year."
