Enhancing Security At Australia's Parliament

CANBERRA, Australia – BAE Systems is enhancing the security at Parliament House in Canberra through replacement of the CCTV management system.

Through the advanced capability of its Universal Video Management System (UVMS), BAE Systems 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 $4 million, was signed in September 2009 and the project is proceeding well against the original schedule.

BAE Systems is the provider of integrated security systems with unified operator graphical user interfaces for multiple layers of security sub-systems.  These include access control, CCTV, intrusion detection, automatic lighting and audio warnings.

The Parliament House project demonstrates BAE Systems’ capability to:

• Design, construct and deliver an integrated network based large scale CCTV management system interfacing with multiple camera types and existing building management systems.

• Deliver the power of modern video analytic engines for enhanced vigilance in the protection of critical assets.

• Design and construction of ergonomic command and control rooms including provision of video walls, operator and supervisor consoles/desks, lighting and acoustic management.

• Manage the transition from a legacy system to the new system without loss of system availability, and

• Provide through life support for the system.

Kim Scott, Joint Business Unit Director, said today that 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,” Mr Scott concluded.
