Dillwynia Correctional Centre, NSW.

An electronics security management system designed by high-technology defence and security company, Saab Australia, will soon secure multiple prisons in NSW, Australia.

Saab’s OneView will manage security, surveillance and facility management functions at the Dillwynia Women’s Correctional Centre, Mid North Coast Correctional Centre at Kempsey and the Clarence Correction Centre near Grafton.

According to Michael Wilkin, Saab Australia, department manager public safety and security, the prisons’ electronic security specification demanded a reliable highly automated, user-friendly physical security information management system with open architecture and the ability to integrate multiple sub systems simultaneously with minimum risk.

The integrated security management system connects all security subsystems, including video surveillance, access control, intrusion detection, intercoms, biometric scanners and more, into a simple interface.

“When a security breach unfolds, a lot of information is generated via different sensors, so it’s critical the system is fast, foolproof and robust,” said Wilkin. “OneView brings all this information together intelligently, presenting the critical information needing attention and advice for personnel on how to action.”

Designed in Adelaide by the engineers who developed the Royal Australian Navy’s battle-proven combat management system, OneView is also securing hospitals, defence bases, government buildings, detention centres and other major prisons around the country.
