Defence and security company Saab has been awarded a contract to enhance security measures at strategic Australian government facilities as part of a transformation project in response to increased threats.

Saab Australia has been contracted to deliver an integrated security system that will monitor, identify and communicate threats, protecting people working in an increasingly volatile environment.

"Integrated security systems like this have been adopted by the UK and USA 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 at Saab Australia.

The system that will be rolled out nationally is based on Saab's OneView security platform currently installed in 28 high-security prisons and defence bases across 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 eventuate," said Slade.

Over the past four years, Saab’s installed similar systems in defence bases, detention centres, high-security prisons and remand centres across Australia.

The systems will be rolled out during 2017 and 2018 as part of a broader program to harden and secure public facilities against emerging threats.
