Baltimore/Washington International Thurgood Marshall (BWI) Airport and Intergraph were recently recognized by Government Security News magazines Airport/Seaport/Border Security Awards program in the categories of Most Notable Airport Security Program, Large Airports and Best Physical Security Information Management System (PSIM). The Maryland Aviation Administration implemented Intergraph's cohesive PSIM (I/Security) plus computer-aided dispatch system (I/CAD) with other technologies, forming a Consolidated Dispatch Center (CDC) at BWI located in Anne Arundel County, Maryland.
The primary mission of the CDC at BWI is to provide emergency calls for service processing and dispatching for all airport police, fire and emergency medical services. Using Intergraph's public safety and security solutions, the Maryland Aviation Administration has a fully integrated platform, including all necessary software, hardware and integration services for multi-system and multi-agency coordination. The CDC monitors and responds to several thousand alarms generated from campus-wide safety and security systems. The CDC also functions as a secondary Public Safety Answering Point (PSAP) to the Anne Arundel County PSAP to support airport emergency calls that are initially received by Anne Arundel County. The airport maintains numerous mutual aid agreements with various jurisdictions.
This highly successful project provided our security and public safety personnel with cutting-edge emergency response technology, said Paul J. Wiedefeld, chief executive officer of BWI Marshall. The improvements to the consolidated dispatch center help ensure increased responsiveness and situational awareness. We are honored by the recognition from Government Security News.
In addition to Intergraphs CAD system configured with automated vehicle locator (AVL) and mobile data computer subsystems, the integrated systems include: an enhanced 9-1-1 emergency call processing system with instant recall/recorder functionality, a National Emergency Number Association standard master clock system, a controlled access and closed circuit security system, a telephony system, a 9-1-1 database management system, a fire alarm monitoring system, a fire station alerting system, dispatch consoles and associated dispatch furniture. The fully integrated PSIM plus CAD allows complete situational awareness from detection to assessment to response through the integration of video and sensor system monitoring and control coupled with communications and dispatch capabilities.
Intergraph is the leading global provider of public safety and security solutions. The company has provided and integrated highly reliable consolidated dispatch and security systems at airports such as OHare, Midway, San Francisco, Raleigh-Durham, Seattle-Tacoma, Pittsburgh, Reagan National and Washington Dulles.
