Southwest Microwave Scores Australian Government’s SCEC Endorsement
Southwest Microwave has been awarded government approval by Australia’s Security Construction and Equipment Committee (SCEC) for its INTREPID MicroPoint II Fence-Mounted Detection System, MicroTrack II Buried Cable Intrusion Detection System and Microwave 330 Digital Volumetric Microwave Link.
As a standing interdepartmental committee reporting to the Attorney General's Protective Security Policy Committee, the SCEC was established by the Australian Government to develop and implement guidelines for protection of Australian Government resources. The SCEC is responsible for the evaluation of security equipment for use by Australian Government departments and agencies.
With this certification, Southwest Microwave’s INTREPID suite of detection technologies have been successfully vetted against stringent government-mandated criteria for the protection of high security and administrative security applications, making them eligible for registration in the SCEC’s Security Equipment Evaluated Product List (SEEPL).
Australian and state government agencies, operators of critical infrastructure and security advisers employ the SEEPL as their primary source for security products meeting the minimum requirements of Australia’s Protective Security Policy Framework (PSPF).
“Our INTREPID perimeter intrusion detection systems are relied upon throughout Australia and worldwide to mitigate risk of attack against security-sensitive government, energy, correctional, transportation and industrial facilities,” said Bob Kirkaldie, Southwest Microwave’s director of sales.
“Accreditation by Australia’s SCEC further affirms the capabilities of these sensors as dependable technologies for the fortification of critical national infrastructure and other high risk sites against terrorist or criminal threat.” ♦
