Fire control at Perth airport

Monday, 27 September, 2010

C4i has brought into service the ninth of 20 fire control centre SwitchplusIP systems being delivered to Aviation Rescue & Fire Fighting (ARFF) of Airservices Australia.

The system is now operating at Perth airport, the fourth busiest airport in Australia.

The project was started 20 months ago and has developed an integrated emergency response system for ARFF. The system integrates a variety of existing systems and provides automated services to assist in the response to incidents.

The system uses voice over IP and includes the capability to interface to legacy systems in both analog and digital domains.

C4i believes this system is a world first in networking airport fire control centre command and control. Airservices will be able to remotely monitor and control alarms and communications of any airport fire station from any other station within the nation.

This provides integration of airport fire station communications, including telephony, radio, aviation emergency response hotlines and integrated building and alarm control and monitoring systems.
