June 19 (UPI) -- Saab Australia has received a contract to provide integrated security systems for Australian government facilities.
"Integrated security systems like this have been adopted by the United Kingdom and United States 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, said in a press release.
Australia already has Saab OneView security networks in use at high-security prisons and defense facilities. The new roll-out in 2017 and 2018 for civilian public-sector buildings is based on the OneView system.
"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," Slade said.
OneView is designed to easily integrate new or existing third-party equipment in a single command and control system, making it customizable based on security needs. It includes embedded training software that modifies depending on what systems are connected to the OneView station or stations.
The system is expected to be deployed nationwide.
