SDI’s Transit System Division specializes in the operation and maintenance of APM systems at critical locations such as airports and hospitals as well as other public and private installations.

SDI offers short term O&M contracts of up to one year after commissioning a new or refurbished system to train the owner’s O&M staff for a smooth transition. We are also currently performing multiple long-term contracts spanning five or more years.
