As part of the facility, a highly sophisticated scenario village will be monitored by more than 30 CCTV cameras allowing trainers to observe trainees in real time. Cameras are supported by Bosch Video Management System software package. This enterprise IP solution allows Bosch’s new Starlight IP camera range to offer HD images of training operations as well as handling the site’s video surveillance requirements.

The site will be accessed via the Commend Intercom Systems vandal resistant door stations. The intercom system will integrate with the CCTV system and will allow staff to observe visitors requesting entry on 55-inch LED screens in HD with high fidelity audio.
