Team PSSAP competed in the ‘Base Security and Defense’ challenge, looking to demonstrate comprehensive and affordable perimeter security and actionable intelligence.

The Base and Security Challenge focused on how the US Air Force utilises new installations to analyse and improve the security and defence systems protecting its people and critical resources. The challenge called for solutions to build an agile and responsive air base of the future, safeguarded efficiently from threats ranging from explosives and shooters to cyber risks.

It was centred around six topics - Base Security, Installation Resilience, Leveraging Technology for Operational Effectiveness, Reverse Engineering, Culture of Innovation, and Airman and Family Wellbeing. The proposals selected to advance in the challenge demonstrate innovative solutions across a range of specialist areas including security technology.

We are committed to growing our footprint in the United States, providing innovative and reliable security systems to suit the needs of the US Department of Defense.’
