Large-scale PSIM implementations
The Company has successfully delivered over 100 security programmes with a combined value of over $1 billion to enterprises in a number of sectors including oil and gas, and transport, including several airports and commercial ports throughout the world. The majority of these facilities are classified as critical national infrastructure.
General Dynamics UK is bringing its
considerable experience to a massive infrastructure development in Abu Dhabi. The Company is implementing the system that will secure the Khalifa Port Industrial Zone (KPIZ), Abu Dhabi’s largest infrastructure project to date. The first of five phases of the construction of KPIZ is estimated to cost $4.4 billion and will occupy a site a quarter of the size of Greater London.
General Dynamics UK is installing a PSIM solution
at the main centre and two secondary control centres to manage the video and camera systems, access control, intruder detection and gate management systems as well as the entire Port Operating System. There are over 700 cameras (internal and external) and multiple intruder detection systems. All these systems are integrated with and managed and controlled by the security control centre’s PSIM software. This enables cost-effective and centralised deployment of staff and provides a global view of operations spanning a wide area.
General Dynamics UK is also providing the
security, telecommunications and IT systems for the Pearl Gas to Liquid (GTL) project in which Royal Dutch Shell and Qatar Petroleum are building the world’s largest gas to liquid facility.
In the US, General Dynamics integrated a PSIM
solution into the Airport Response Coordination Centre at Los Angeles International Airport (LAX). In an environment as fragmented, busy and expansive as LAX, efficient response to unfolding events is critical. An open platform PSIM situation management solution integrates all systems and response activities into a unified platform.
One of the factors contributing to the
complexity of an airport’s security environment is the number of stakeholders. These include first responders such as police, fire and rescue operations, in addition to external governing agencies involved in communication, response and in some cases decision-making. Now that all systems, stakeholders and agencies are integrated onto a common platform, everyone knows what is happening, where it is happening and the most effective response to address the situation.
In the defence sector, General Dynamics
has delivered several hierarchical command and control programmes globally, including those for the Pentagon in the US, the MoD in the UK and numerous export customers.

Protecting a nation’s
critical national infrastructure doesn’t just mean keeping it secure. It means ensuring it is resilient enough to
continue operating through and after security events
