Currently, in most cases, security measures are aimed at protecting a single building or premises (fences, buffer zones, guards). By adopting an integrated approach for all objects in an area, using modern technology and by innovating the security processes, the desired security level could be achieved more efficiently, with less inconvenience to residents in the area. To facilitate innovations in this field, HSD will foster an innovation environment for comprehensive area protection where companies, knowledge institutions and security services can test new solutions in practice .
This ‘living lab’ will primarily be used as an experimental facility in the programme ‘security innovation in the international zone’. By developing the concept of integrated area protection in more depth and by experimenting ‘real time’, a tangible contribution is made to reducing the vulnerability of sensitive areas and to improving response in the event of emergencies.
