We were tasked with the installation of 2 high powered, optical zoom PTZ cameras which were to be installed in their multi-million pound radio frequency and signalling site. With the clients involvement in the production of space and defence technology, there were a number of screening protocols to complete to ensure that all sensitive information would remain classified. We were granted with access and permits for specific rooms to conduct works with other areas restricted due to classification status. This presented its own challenges in the installation method and route options for system cabling. The radio frequency room in which we were working is the largest radio signalling room in Europe and is able to fit and test various space crafts.
We required specialist access equipment that could reach up to 20m high. With the use of harnesses, we were able to ensure engineers safety while installing the cameras. The cables had to be run behind a foam like material to avoid interference when the test centre was in live action. Once on the ground floor, wiring had to be taken through underfloor ducting panels as there could be no drilling or fixing to the interior walls to ensure the integrity of the building as holes would interfere with the signal. Once all hard wiring was completed, the DVR could be set up and programmed and designated users trained by our engineer. We personally received a letter of thanks following the project for completing in promptly, efficiently and to a high standard.
