Saab (Chalet 379) has signed a contract to enhance security measures at specific Australian Government facilities as part of a broader program to secure public facilities against increased threats. Saab Australia will introduce an integrated security system during 2017 and 2018 to protect public servants by monitoring, identifying and communicating threats.
“Integrated security systems like this have been adopted by the UK and U.S. to proactively manage access and identify threats as we see more random attacks on agencies and within public spaces,” said Mark Slade, civil security manager, Saab Australia.
The security system that Saab will provide is based on its OneView security platform. OneView is currently installed at 28 high-security prisons and defense bases throughout Australia and New Zealand.
“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 [happen],” said Slade.
