The U.S. Bureau of Engraving and Printing recently announced that Science Applications International Corporation will implement an innovative integrated security system compliant with the Homeland Security Presidential Directive 12 for several BEP facilities. The installation of the technology costs approximately $17 million and will take about five years to complete.
“We look forward to assisting BEP in evaluating their existing security systems and developing recommendations for a new enterprise system to enable a common technology platform that is site independent, while also providing redundancy for disaster recovery purposes,” SAIC senior vice president John Thomas said.
The contract will require SAIC to provide, design and install a unified security platform that replaces legacy technologies and connects manufacturing facilities at Fort Worth, Texas, and Washington, D.C.
To learn about trends in the market and the benefits of deploying integrated security systems, decision-makers should consider attending the Electronic Security Expo 2012 in Nashville from June 25 through 29. The conference will discuss the security landscape in its entirety, including surveillance technologies, access control systems and innovative video alarm solutions.
