The first feature of its kind to combine technologies in a simulated urban environment to protect people and buildings
PROTECTING URBAN SPACES DEMONSTRATOR
What is the Protecting Urban Spaces Demonstrator?
Working in conjunction with CPNI.
It’s the first feature of its kind to combine the latest technologies in a simulated urban environment to help educate security professionals on how best to protect people and buildings in public places. This exciting 300 square metre feature took centre stage at the show and simulated a park and town centre. There were live demonstrations and scenarios throughout both days, allowing visitors to step inside the demonstrator and experience how this technology works at first hand in a real-life context. Each scenario within the urban spaces feature had a realistic backdrop with screens showing authentic filmed content, and products set out to allow companies to demonstrate physical and technological solutions which can help protect them.
Who was involved?
We worked alongside industry leading architects Farrells, Neil Bennet who has mastered the design of this project. We also worked with from Roger Cumming at Fenley Martel and security engineer Andrew Sieradzki, BuroHappold Engineering as the projects' technical lead ensuring the demonstrator was fully integrated and reflects best practice.
Command & Control Room
Supplied by Winsted & Mitsubishi, where the feeds from the feature came from CCTV, Biometrics and also featured a crisis management platform which displayed on a live video wall. Winsted provided an integrated leading control room designed specifically to meet the rigorous demands of a 24/7 environment alongside Mitsubishi’s display system making a highly efficient realistic control room set-up enabling visitors to be able to see how the technologies worked in a real-life situation.
