Securiton Germany has been working in the field of civil security research for many years.
As a member of the former Fraunhofer innovation cluster Future Security Baden-Württemberg, of which the Fraunhofer Institut für Kurzzeitdynamik (EMI, Ernst-Mach-Institute) and the Fraunhofer Institut für Optronik, Systemtechnik und Bildauswertung (IOSB) were members, multiple research projects were carried out in cooperation with a very broad range of collaborative partners from institutes, various organisations and other industry partners.
The current collaborative projects receive funding from the Federal Ministry of Education and Research (BMBF) within the framework of the government programme “Research for civil security”.
The goal of the security research programme is to develop innovative solutions that increase civil security for citizens while maintaining the balance between security and freedom.
The project partners for the current research projects at national and international level include the Federal Criminal Police Office, the Fraunhofer IOSB in Karlsruhe, Munich University of Applied Science, Johannes Gutenberg University Mainz, Goethe University Frankfurt, Fraport AG, the city of Hamburg together with the Hamburg fire service and the Hamburg police and further renowned project partners include the firm ATOS GmbH.
In the context of the current research projects, the Securiton Germany work packages are engaged with the integration and display of information using the IPS VideoManager video management system and the SecuriLocate AARTOS DDS drone detection system.
Two research projects in which Securiton Germany is involved are currently in progress. The ArGUS research project investigates the topic of drone detection and the S2UCRE looks at video-based analysis of crowds of people.
The knowledge about the German security market that is available in-house at Securiton and the requirements for future products and systems in this market are of great interest for the various research organisations, and Securiton employees are in demand as participants at conferences and in podium discussions.
