Thales and Unica to secure 170 locations of the Netherlands’ MOD
June 2016 by Emmanuelle Lamandé
Thales and Unica have signed a performance based contract with the CDC (Commando Diensten Centrum) of the Dutch Ministry of Defence for a new security and surveillance system at approximately 170 locations in the Netherlands.
The system will replace the current more than 45 operational systems used across all parts of the defence organisation. Thales and Unica are equal partners in the contract and will be responsible for the installation, operations and services for a period of 15 years.
The security and surveillance system integrates access-control, intruder detection and nationwide monitoring and control. The new system lives up to the highest standards in security and simplifies operations and maintenance. It will enable the use of the Rijkspas which can be used for access, authentication and identification.
The local partnership between Thales and Unica will develop, integrate, install, manage and service the necessary hard- and software for security monitoring and will work together with the Ministry of Defence to manage the services.
