Qatari Internal Security Force (Lekhwiya) and Chinese company Nuctech have signed an agreement to manufacture smart jackets for workers in Qatar, Qatar News Agency (QNA) reported Thursday.

The smart jacket will feature a helmet cooling system and a chip that gives signals indicating the condition of workers. The solar-powered jacket also includes the voice dialing function and a tracker.

Under the deal, Nuctech will take patent for a number of devices innovated by Lekhwiya, including safety devices for construction workers in Qatar.

Apart from smart jackets, safety devices to be developed under the deal also include intelligent eye sensor, automatic explosive and drug detection device, Nuctech cross-sectional scanning device and intelligent security fence.

The agreement was signed by Lekhwiya's commander of the security technologies Ali Hassan al-Rashed and Nuctech Vice-President Wang Weidong, in the presence of Minister of Administrative Development, Labour and Social Affairs Issa al Nuaimi.

The Beijing-based Nuctech has been a provider of security equipment in China since 2006 when it was awarded a contract by the Chinese government for producing scanners to detect liquid explosives at all of China's airports.

The company is one of the world's top providers of security scanning equipment, which has clients in about 50 countries.
