Defence Security Systems

Fire and security systems for the defence industry must be designed to withstand harsh environments, extreme temperatures, and other challenges unique to military installations. They must also be highly reliable and effective in detecting and responding to potential threats. As such, they are typically designed and installed by experienced contractors with specialised accreditations and expertise in defence industry applications.

CCTV Systems & AI

Specialist CCTV cameras such as explosion proof cameras are an important component of security systems in the defence industry. There are several reasons why CCTV cameras are necessary in this context:

CCTV cameras can be used to monitor activity within and around military facilities, including the movements of personnel, vehicles, and equipment. This surveillance can help identify potential security threats and allow for a rapid response.

The presence of CCTV cameras can act as a deterrent to potential intruders or attackers, as they increase the risk of detection and apprehension.

In the event of a security breach, CCTV camera footage can be used to investigate the incident and determine the cause. This can help identify any weaknesses in the security system and improve it for the future.

CCTV recordings can be used for training purposes, such as identifying and correcting unsafe behaviour, or to evaluate the effectiveness of security protocols in place.

Surveillance cameras can be used to record activity within secure areas, providing a record of those entering and exiting, when they did so, and what they did while on site. This information can be valuable for audits, compliance, and other security purposes.

Access Control

Access control systems are crucial for maintaining security, protecting classified information, ensuring compliance, promoting accountability, and enhancing emergency response capabilities in the defence industry:

Access control systems restrict entry to secure areas only to authorised personnel, preventing unauthorised access and reducing the risk of security breaches, espionage, or sabotage.

Defence facilities handle highly sensitive and classified information that requires strict control and protection. Our access control systems will ensure that only authorised personnel with the appropriate clearance levels can access such information.

Access control systems are ensure compliance with various regulations and standards that defence facilities must adhere to. This includes security clearance requirements, physical security requirements, regulatory compliance, and accountability.

Access control systems allow you to keep track of who enters and exits secure areas, and provides an audit trail that can be used for accountability, compliance, and even investigation purposes.

By installing access control systems it will help to ensure the safety of all military personnel and assets by restricting access to secure areas. Ultimately preventing accidents, theft, or damage to infrastructure and equipment.

In the event of an emergency, access control systems will help rapidly evacuate personnel from secure areas safely. They can also prevent unauthorised persons from entering secure areas during an emergency, reducing the risk of harm to both personnel and equipment.

Intruder Prevention Systems


ANPR systems can help defence facilities enhance their security, improve access control, streamline operations, and gather better intelligence, thereby contributing to overall operational effectiveness.

ANPR systems can help enhance the security of defence facilities by automatically capturing and identifying the number plates of vehicles entering and leaving the facility. The system can then compare the captured number plates with a database of authorised vehicles, and raise an alarm if an unauthorised vehicle is detected.

Our ANPR systems can help improve access control to defence facilities by automating the process of verifying the identity of vehicles entering and leaving the facility. This can help reduce the risk of human error and ensure that only authorised vehicles are granted access.

Installing an ANPR systems can help streamline the operations of defence facilities by automating the process of recording and tracking the movements of vehicles within the facility. This can help reduce administrative burden, improve efficiency, and provide a clearer picture of the facility’s operations.

Our ANPR systems can help defence facilities gather better intelligence by providing real-time data on the movements of vehicles in and around the facility. This can help identify patterns and trends, and enable more effective decision-making.

Gates & Barriers

Gates and barriers are an important component of the security infrastructure at defence facilities. By installing and maintaining a gate or barrier system it can provide a range of benefits, including enhanced physical security, controlled access, improved traffic management, automation, and monitoring and surveillance capabilities. This will contribute to the overall security and operational effectiveness of the facility.

Our robust gate and barriers systems will enhance the physical security of defence facilities by creating a physical barrier that restricts access to the premises, helping to deter any unauthorised entry and prevent intrusions.

Installing gate or barriers systems can help control access to your defence facility as it will restrict the entry and exit of vehicles and personnel. This will ensure that only authorised individuals are allowed to enter the premises, ultimately reducing the risk of security breaches.

Our gate and barrier installations will help improve the traffic management at defence facilities by controlling the flow of both vehicles and pedestrians. This will reduce congestion on site and overall improve safety by preventing collisions and accidents.

All our gates and barriers can be automated, which will then help reduce the need for manual intervention whilst improving the speed and efficiency of your access control procedures. This will help save time and reduce costs.

Our gates and barriers installation and maintenance will help your business reduce security costs by minimising the need for manual security measures, such as on-site security and traffic enforcement personnel.
