Military contractor, BAE Systems, has won a $4 million contract with Parliament House in Canberra.
The deal involves designing, constructing and delivering a new network-based CCTV management system using Axis Communications cameras. BAE will also refurbish old control rooms, manage the transition from the old to the new system and provide support for five years.
According to a statement from Axis Communications, the cameras will provide 1080i High-Definition image quality with motion, audio and tampering detection. They are designed to withstand extreme weather conditions and be discreet indoors.
BAE Systems joint business unit director, Kim Scott, said the high-profile win would help cement its reputation in the integrated security market.
“Parliament House is a high profile, internationally recognised iconic site,” Scott said.
