This project entailed the monitoring of “classified” government infrastructure consisting of a Wide Area Network of 23 sites, located in remote, uninhabited regions of sandy desert with great temperature extremes over a geographical area in excess of 2 million square kilometers. The project was developed to replace a large proprietary monitoring system which had been operational for many years. The function of the proposed new system was to maintain the performance of various sensor monitored systems such as Air-Conditioning, Pump and Power Generators, Lighting, Access Control, Elevators and Physical Security, via a central Command and Control facility. Several sites have up to 18 different types of sensors to be monitored.
The entire, 23 site GPAC System™ was operational within 8 weeks and allowed the client to interface and reprogram a diverse range of environmental sensors that are not usually supported in security monitoring systems. In addition to cameras and motion detectors, the GPAC System™ can interface with any Open Standard device which gave our client almost limitless options. The recognized benefits for the client are:
