Baltimore/Washington International Airport (BWI) recently achieved an award with Intergraph Security Solutions for recognition of their PSIM system for Physical Security Information Management procedures. The airport also won Most Notable Airport Security Program, Large Airports.
The Consolidated Dispatch Centre (CDC) at BWI provides emergency calls delivery across the airport, using a fully integrated platform with software, hardware and multi-system and agency coordination services. The CDC responds to security system-wide calls and additionally, provides a Public Safety Answering Point (PSAP) to the Anne Arundel County.
“This highly successful project provided our security and public safety personnel with cutting-edge emergency response technology,” said Paul J. Wiedefeld, chief executive officer of BWI Marshall. “The improvements to the consolidated dispatch centre help ensure increased responsiveness and situational awareness. We are honoured by the recognition from Government Security News.”
Sophisticated PSIM solutions are necessary within a secure aviation environment. Many security systems incorporate physical security systems, from perimeter fencing and monitoring to personnel access systems and information management systems for all mission critical facilities.
