Saab Australia securing the nation’s largest correctional facilities
Saab Australia (Saab) has signed a significant contract to supply the facility wide security system for the Victorian Government’s newest 1248 bed maximium security prison at Chisholm Road, Lara.
Saab Australia’s locally designed, developed and supported OneViewTM security integration platform will be the centrepiece of the new prison’s electronic security solution.
“Our OneViewTM system will seamlessly integrate a multitide of security subsystems, including electronic access control, video surveillance, biometric scanners, intruder detection and mobile duress,” said Andy Keough, Saab Australia Managing Director.
“This latest contract for the Chisholm Road facility further builds on Saab’s strong reputation as the leading security systems integrator for Australia’s correctional facilities sector.”
“Our high-quality customisable product and local in-service support are clearly resonating with our customers, resulting in a growing portfolio of corrections facilities and other large-scale, critical infrastructure projects choosing OneViewTM.”
OneViewTM is already installed at the Barwon and Marngoneet facilities adjacent to the new prison.
“To deliver this latest contract, Saab will use local suppliers and contractors, supporting Victorian industry as it recovers from the economic impacts of COVID-19, and create a number of new jobs within Saab’s national security solutions team.”
In addition to the scope of work related to OneViewTM product customisation, integration and deployment, as head Security Contractor on the project, Saab will undertake overall project management, procurement of security equipment, supervision of installation works and site wide set to work and commissoning of the full security system.
Saab’s OneViewTM solution is a highly customisable system that simplifies the security picture for control room operators. The easy-to-manage human interface delivers and prioritises critical information from sensors installed throughout a facility and uses customer defined workflows to manage incidents. The solution provides an open system, facilitating the use of best of breed subsystem solutions and allowing greater choice in initial design and fllexibility for future upgrades and support.
