BAE Systems enhances the security of Parliament House in Canberra through replacement of the surveillance management system.
Through the advanced capability of its Universal VMS (UVMS), BAE is providing Parliament House with an easy-to-use system for viewing live and recorded footage from a variety of camera types.
The contract, valued at approximately US$4 million, was signed September 2009 and the project is proceeding well against the original schedule.
BAE is the provider of integrated security systems with unified operator GUI for multiple layers of security subsystems. These include access control, surveillance, intrusion detection, automatic lighting and audio warnings.
BAE designs, constructs and delivers an integrated network-based large-scale surveillance management system interfacing with multiple camera types and existing building management systems.
It delivers the power of modern video analytic engines for vigilance in the protection of critical assets.
Ergonomic command and control rooms including provision of video walls, operator and supervisor consoles/desks, lighting and acoustic management are constructed as well. BAE manages the transition from a legacy system to the new system without loss of system availability.
Kim Scott, Joint Business Unit Director, said the BAE Systems team had overcome significant challenges to ensure the project was delivered on schedule and to the customer's satisfaction.
"Parliament House is an internationally renowned building and it's a privilege for us to have the opportunity to deliver a world class security and surveillance solution for a national icon," Scott said.
