A comprehensive security plan is important for security service providers, including SECOM. Major events in particular require thorough preparation. The security planning process for major events is generally divided into three steps: correct site understanding, risk identification and analysis, and risk mitigation. To complete these steps, on-site research and off-site analysis are repeated. Our 3D Security Planning System can save time and reduce costs in this process.
3D Security Planning is software that enables us to provide a holistic security plan for major events by combining 3D visualisation technology, GIS (Geographic Information System) and BIM (Building Information Modelling). The three main features of 3D Security Planning are:
We can virtually survey the site with an off-site pre-survey to prepare for the actual on-site survey. Both GIS and BIM data are used to create an accurate replica of the site in virtual space to better understand of the geographical features of the site. For example, it provides us with 360-degree images from a moving vehicle. In this virtual space, we can integrate notes and pictures taken during the on-site survey.
Simulation can be used for various scenarios. For example, we can simulate how the site looks from the possible routes that planes or ships would take. Security Planning is also based on simulation technology. For example, we can optimise the placement of security cameras without any blind spots by simulating the video images the camera would take. We can also plan the optimal deployment of our SECOM airship because our simulation technology is applicable to moving objects.
3D Security Planning System contributed to the success of the 42nd G7 Summit held in Japan in 2016. It was highly praised by police authorities as an effective tool for security planning and site understanding.
