Important new projects commissioned to INTEGRA AES during past months allow us to consolidate our expertise and experience in the design of Integrated Protection Systems, both for civilian, industrial infrastructures and military installations.
Over the past decade INTEGRA AES has gained wide experience, even in delicate regions such as North Africa and Afghanistan, and continuously enhance its expertise in a difficult field that requires not only high level technical skills, but also to adopt strict protocols and obey inflexible standards in project management.
The crucial task to protect industrial plants, strategic infrastructures (both civilian and military ones) and any other ‘sensitive target’ – as well as people themselves – has much to benefit from specialised engineering companies like INTEGRA AES as regards the design of appropriate Integrated Security Systems (ISSs).
ISS may comprise quite a large set of different measures, ranging from the installation of high-tech systems (video-surveillance, intrusion detection systems, etc.) to the construction of physical barriers or buildings with special structural and functional characteristics. The proper mix of these measures can adequately fulfill the need to deter and discourage the potential threats (active measures) and to resist, delay and keep away the possible damages deriving from an attack or accident (passive measures).
In every case, the effectiveness of an Integrated Security System depends on the quality, completeness and depth of a previous threats assessment. INTEGRA AES can successfully accomplish a thorough evaluation that ensure to design an effective ISS, starting from the reconnaissance of the possible threat scenarios, going through the identification of vulnerabilities, up to the definition of a mix of active and passive protection measures appropriate to face all threats considered by fixing the vulnerabilities.
Moreover, while designing an ISS, also a number of additional, case-specific needs must be taken into account such as, for instance, the need for discrete solutions, that is as ‘invisible’ and non-invasive as possible, which is an important point when it comes to design the protection measures for civilian installations open to the public (airports, malls, etc.).
