U.S. Air Force Renews Honeywell Certification to Protect Critical Assets
Honeywell, Louisville, Ky., announced that its newest generation of Vindicator® Command, Control and Display Equipment (CCDE) has been certified to protect critical assets at U.S. Air Force bases worldwide. The U.S. Air Force awarded the certification after exhaustive qualification, testing and evaluation. Vindicator solutions have been on the USAF-approved equipment list without interruption since the mid-1990s. Vindicator products are also approved for operation across the Air Force’s data networks.
“You protect more than just an entryway when securing these types of facilities,” said Angela Oberman, senior channel manager, critical infrastructure. “These facilities require the highest levels of security because they themselves have been deemed critical to helping secure countries and their people. Vindicator is designed to allow the people who work within these facilities to do their jobs without having to worry about their own physical or network security measures.”
Honeywell’s portfolio of Vindicator security technologies allow operators to use a single workstation to manage security event information gathered from interior and perimeter intrusion, video detection, access control and fire systems. Vindicator solutions can use an existing or discrete facility network over any media transport, such as wire, RF, modem or fiber optic, both encrypted and redundantly. This critical level of security is often required by government and military installations, industrial facilities, utilities and many correctional institutions.
Vindicator products were tested and approved to protect USAF PL1 through PL4 sites include the Vindicator Command & Control 2 (VCC 2) platform, V5 Intrusion Detection System (IDS), V5 Access Control System (ACS), Security Archive Workstation 2 (SAW 2), Vindicator Badge Manager 3 (VBM 3), Vindicator Site Commander (VSC), Vindicator Area Commander (VAC), Vindicator Premise Controller (VPC), and the UHS-1500 field panel.
