Honeywell provides StandardAero with comprehensive security solution
Honeywell provides StandardAero with comprehensive security solution

Founded in 1911, StandardAero is one of the world’s largest independent aviation service businesses. StandardAero specialises in maintenance, repair and overhaul for commercial, air transport, military, business and general aviation, industrial aircraft and helicopters. Its 4,000 employees located in 26 facilities in the U.S., Canada, Europe, Asia and Australia serve customers from more than 80 different countries. StandardAero is always looking for a better way to provide excellent service to its customers, from developing proprietary repair processes to redesigning its facilities to make them among the most efficient in the world. The situation There’s no doubt about it: operators love their aircraft. When operators bring an aircraft to StandardAero for service, they want to stay with the plane throughout the entire maintenance process. They want to know who’s working on the airplane and want to interact with the crew as work moves forward to monitor progress personally. The challenge faced by StandardAero was how to keep the facility secure while simultaneously ensuring that visiting pilots, directors of maintenance and owners had unrestricted access to their planes. Under the company’s old visitor management procedure, a visitor had to remain in sight of an employee escort at all times. While availability of an escort wasn’t always an issue, StandardAero customers said they felt the process to be limiting. They worried that they posed an inconvenience to the staff, and felt the escort procedure added cost to the overall repair charges and diverted manpower away from the aircraft. “We began evaluating security solutions with two goals in mind:  It had to be as effective as a physical escort and invisible to our customers. We talked to our customers about what would best meet their needs,” said Melissa Maddox, vice president, legal risk management for StandardAero, “and we set out to develop a solution to balance regulatory requirements with those needs.” The solution Maddox had seen equipment tracked with a chip, showing an asset as a dot on a screen. Her vision was to put a chip in a customer’s badge and follow it with cameras. Consultant Mark Pickett of ABET Alliance, LLC, introduced Maddox to Chris Wise from Security 101, and she told him they needed an active system to protect the planes — that was completely invisible to customers. Wise helped turn the vision into reality. The first time a customer visits the StandardAero facility in Augusta, Georgia, he is given a picture ID badge that is programmed in the Pro-Watch security management system to grant access in authorised areas during his visit. As the visitor moves throughout the hangars, RFID sensors recognise the presence of a badge and activate the Honeywell cameras installed in each zone, and the security operator is able to track him through the facility on monitors integrated into Honeywell’s MAXPRO® VMS video management system.   Honeywell's cameras and MAXPRO VMS have been installed in the hangars to help monitor authorised access The benefits Rather than feeling as if they’re being followed and watched all the time, the Honeywell system gives StandardAero customers a greater sense of personal freedom and independence when they’re in the facility and helps them feel their aircraft is more secure, which benefits StandardAero. “We’re thinking of expanding our e-Escort programme to our other facilities,” Maddox said, “We’ve investigated other options but nothing seems quite as effective.” Additionally, while it remains unobtrusive for StandardAero’s customers, the system has gotten the attention of another important audience: the Department of Homeland Security. That agency is interested in implementing best practices for security programmes at airports and aviation repair stations in this country and has recently approached StandardAero to see how e-Escort works. “e-Escort helps us enhance the ownership and operating experience for our customers,” Maddox said. “Honeywell and Security 101 helped us provide the kind of solution expected of StandardAero by our customers.” The products MAXPRO® VMS video management system Pro-Watch® Corporate edition HD4 fixed dome cameras ACUIX™ PTZ dome cameras

MESSOA's PTZ speed dome chosen to monitor giant pandas’ habitats
MESSOA's PTZ speed dome chosen to monitor giant pandas’ habitats

The giant panda is one of the most recognised and studied animals in the world today. When China gave the Taipei Zoo two giant pandas in December 2008, the Taiwanese public responded enthusiastically. The Taipei Zoo, which is owned by the Taipei City Government, has now selected MESSOA's SDS710M PTZ speed-dome cameras for monitoring of the pandas' zone. These cameras feature integrated auto-tracking software that provides zoo staff in the security control room with 24-hour surveillance of the pandas, ensuring that staff are able to monitor the pandas' activities and track their movements around the clock. These kinds of video records are extremely valuable to scientists and those from the zoo are sure to make a major contribution to global panda research. The PTZ speed domes feature absolute-coordinate-axis positioning (via two-way RS485) and integrated auto-tracking software, facilitating 24-hour monitoring and observation of giant panda behaviours. They also integrate high-performance zooms with superfine 0.02° pan controls to deliver exceptionally smooth tracking that facilitates capture of moving subjects. The cameras pan at up to 430° per second and tilt at up to 200° per second, allowing quick and efficient capture of the pandas. Giant pandas are an endangered species native to the mountains of central China. They are typically found at elevations between 1,400 and 3,500 feet in Sichuan, Shaanxi, and Gansu Provinces. The Taipei Zoo constructed its Xinguang Special Exhibit House specifically to provide the two giant pandas sent to Taiwan with a similar, suitable habitat. The building's three comfortable and health-centric indoor enclosures are all air conditioned and maintain the interior humidity at 60-70% all year round. Given that the MESSOA SDS710M operates flawlessly in 20-80% relative humidity and is IP66/67-compliant indeed, it was the perfect choice for the conditions inside the panda enclosures. The Taipei Zoo has selected the MESSOA SDS710M to monitor its precious pandas and track their behaviour, confident that the cameras will deliver outstanding performance and reliability over the long term. The PTZ speed domes features absolute-coordinate-axis positioning and integrated auto-tracking software MESSOA SDS700 PTZ speed dome series features: Vandal-proof (750 Kg) speed dome 216X (18X optical), 312X (26X optical), 432X (36X optical) zoom 128X wide dynamic range (PRO series) Turbo-charged preset speeds: pan 430°/sec.; tilt 200°/sec.

Messoa video surveillance solution secures Taiwan Life Insurance headquarters in Taiwan
Messoa video surveillance solution secures Taiwan Life Insurance headquarters in Taiwan

The new headquarters building of Taiwan Life Insurance, one of the top insurers in Taiwan, was complete in late 2012. Sit in the heart of the busy commercial district on Zhongshan North Road, Taipei City, the 12-storey, stone-facade building with the elegant interior design is a modern architecture engineered to meet the most stringent standards in engineering, green sustainability, and safety. Looking to house thousands of staff employees while integrating corporate resources all under one roof, Taiwan Life Insurance needed to employ a video surveillance solution that fulfills its highest requirements for securing the building’s overall safety. The insurer wanted both quality and reliability to ensure a safe and secure environment for everyone working and paying visits at the venue. Solution Several system integrators competed for the tender, and eventually Siemens came through based on the MESSOA video surveillance solution with the leading specifications and imaging performance. In early 2013, a total of just over 100 MESSOA CCTV cameras were deployed, covering the capacious 30,000sqm of gross floor space of the building. Among them, a dozen of SDS730PRO speed dome cameras were installed on the exterior of the building to secure the perimeters; thirty some pieces of SCR368 IR bullet cameras were mounted at security-concerning areas, overlooking the lobby, and key access points where adverse lighting is present; and the rest were SDR447 dome cameras, which were used for discreet monitoring of elevators, hallways, and staircases on each floor. Built in with Sony CCD and top-tier components, all three models deployed in this project deliver up to 700 TVL high quality images that are positive for identification and video analysis in case of any incidence. The camera sensitivity and image processing capability are further improved by the proprietary Lumii™ Technology to deliver sharper and crisper images under all lighting conditions at all times regardless of the locations the cameras are installed. Both the SDR447 and the SCR368 are fitted with varifocal lenses, which offer maximum flexibility in installation such that the security system can be easily adapted to various environments and be operated without any difficulty. The lean, compact size of SDR447 made the cameras discreet and unobtrusive, which goes rather well with the building’s classy interior design. Result The inspection team from Taiwan Life Insurance expressed their satisfaction after they had run a complete test on the system. They paid extra attention on the cameras’ performance, including the pan-tilt-zoom functions, as well as live view and playback video of all critical monitored scenes inside the building. Everything they saw on the monitor turned out clear, even where places that may be poor lit. The team was confident that the safety of its brand new headquarters can be well assured.
