The security of a major airfield located in a semi-urban environment was a complex task. The large length of the perimeter coupled with the presence of infrastructure, civilian housing and movement of people and vehicles next to the boundary wall both within the perimeter and outside the perimeter presented unique challenges. Further, the OFC system was required to be seamlessly integrated with other layers, with conditional priority accorded to each layer, to provide situational awareness to the user. In terms of scale and complexity, it was the first-of-its-kind project in the country.
The approach adopted for implementing the OFC solution was based on an extensive site survey, interaction with customers to understand their pain points and expectations from the security system. A team of experts was drawn out to draw up the overall strategy and implementation plan. Further, a team was deputed at the project site for the entire duration of the project to undertake incremental improvement in system performance. The key highlights of the solution implemented are as follows: -
The successful implementation of the OFC system, well-integrated with overall security infrastructure, in a complex environment. The system provides gap-free coverage and is easy to operate and maintain. The system has facilitated round the clock monitoring of the security of a large perimeter of a sensitive airbase. It has augmented the overall security. The professional approach of team ATHENA with relentless efforts on the ground to deliver an effective solution has been praised by the client.
