Saab Australia has won a contract to enhance security measures at strategic Australian governmental facilities in a transformation project that responds to perceived increased threats.
The company will deliver an integrated security system that will monitor, identify and communicate threats, protecting public servants working in an increasingly volatile environment. The system to be rolled out nationally is based on Saab's OneView security platform, currently installed in 28 high-security prisons and defence bases across Australia and New Zealand.
The systems will be rolled out during 2017 and 2018 as part of a broader programme to harden and secure public facilities against emerging threats.
"Integrated security systems like this have been adopted by the UK and USA to proactively manage access and identify threats as we see more random attacks on agencies and within public spaces," Mark Slade, Civil Security Manager for Saab Australia, pointed out. "Our OneView security system combines and manages a wide range of security surveillance equipment in real time providing the best available situational awareness in and around facilities to defuse situations before they eventuate."
Over the past four years, Saab has installed similar systems in defence bases, detention centres, high-security prisons and remand centres across Australia with great success.
