Cas­sid­ian & Sin­ga­pore Govern­ment to de­velop se­cu­rity so­lu­tions

SP's MAI - - CORPORATE -

Cas­sid­ian, a world­wide leader in de­fence and se­cu­rity so­lu­tions, to­gether with its lo­cal part­ner NCS, has been awarded the Safe City Test Bed by the Min­istry of Home Af­fairs and the Sin­ga­pore Eco­nomic De­vel­op­ment Board (SEDB). The test bed pro­ject, a re­search and de­vel­op­ment ini­tia­tive, will be es­tab­lished in Sin­ga­pore. It in­cludes the de­vel­op­ment and live test­ing of in­no­va­tive tech­nolo­gies and ad­vanced an­a­lyt­ics, such as video con­tent, e-sens­ing and smart city sen­sors. This will pro­vide added in­tel­li­gence and op­er­a­tional ben­e­fits to the govern­ment agen­cies in­volved—the po­lice and civil de­fence forces—as well as pub­lic ur­ban trans­port, en­vi­ron­men­tal and util­ity agen­cies, with the ob­jec­tive of keep­ing Sin­ga­pore safe and se­cure.

“This govern­ment as­sisted test bed pro­gramme will en­able com­pa­nies like Cas­sid­ian and NCS to use Sin­ga­pore as a unique ‘Liv­ing Lab­o­ra­tory’, cre­at­ing con­cepts and so­lu­tions which can be com­mer­cialised given the grow­ing de­mand world­wide for Safe City so­lu­tions,” said Gian Yi-Hsen, Di­rec­tor of the Safety and Se­cu­rity In­dus­try Pro­gramme Of­fice from SEDB. “Smart tech­nolo­gies will es­tab­lish new par­a­digms on in­tera­gency co­or­di­na­tion and au­to­mate pro­cesses that tra­di­tion­ally re­quire te­dious work. We hope our part­ner­ship with Cas­sid­ian will drive new stan­dards in safety and se­cu­rity op­er­a­tions with wide pub­lic-pri­vate ap­pli­ca­tion,” said Anselm Lopez, Di­rec­tor Ca­pa­bil­i­ties De­vel­op­ment and In­ter­na­tional Part­ner­ships of the Min­istry of Home Af­fairs.

Jens Nielsen, Head of Cas­sid­ian’s In­te­grated Sys­tems Busi­ness Line stated, “We are proud to be part of this pro­ject and its unique con­cept in mak­ing use of live city data by con­tribut­ing our ex­per­tise and so­lu­tions, and in col­lab­o­ra­tion with our lo­cal part­ner NCS, to sup­port SEDB’s goals in de­vel­op­ing the econ­omy in Sin­ga­pore”.

The goal of this test bed will be to ex­tract value out of ex­ist­ing silo sen­sors by in­te­grat­ing and build­ing ad­vanced an­a­lyt­ics into ex­ist­ing sys­tems. Re­sults from the test bed will be show­cased at the World Cities Sum­mit in June 2014 in Sin­ga­pore.
