Saab's systems for civil security and surveillance consist of a number of functions that can be connected to one another and customised for various purposes. The key functions include communication, decision support, resource management, planning and centralised surveillance. The system gives those responsible for making our daily lives a little safer the tools needed to tackle day-to-day challenges and sudden emergencies as best they can.
Saab's solution is based around a central function that acts like the spider in a web. Incoming calls are processed here; alerts are prioritised and classified, and resources are dispatched on assignments. The function can be coupled with other systems, such as radio communication systems, and platforms for mobile units such as police cars and ambulances.
In addition to communication, the platform for mobile units also handles navigation, documentation, planning and decision making – all in one. The platform is used by the majority of Swedish county councils, helping to improve patient safety and more.
Saab's radio communication system covers all communication between the center and various units, as well as between units. The system is used throughout the world by the oil and gas industry.
Saab's solution also includes radio networks that can maintain communication over vast areas and in difficult environments, such as tunnels and culverts – quite important in a large prison or an airport.
But security is not just about responding to alarms and maintaining communications. Preventative work is equally important. Functions are also therefore available that create overall traceability and statistics, enabling informed decisions to be made. To support the operator, functions such as dynamic query trees and check lists that adapt to the sequence of events are also available.
Saab's security solutions are used by companies that demand stable 24/7 or 365 systems for critical operating flows. The solutions are to be found at Arlanda and Bromma airports for security and resource management; at prisons in Sweden, New Zealand and Australia for alarms and security surveillance; by CVIT companies for route optimisation, planning and surveillance; by the monitoring station for the Swedish national information number 11313; by the emergency services in vehicles and call centres for the planning and optimisation of emergency call outs and in ambulances in almost all of Sweden's municipalities and county councils for navigation, planning and decision support.
