Singapore Police Force chooses Nedap AVI

Location:         Jalan Bahar, Singapore

Client:               Home Team Academy

Partner:            MOS Technology

Application:    Vehicle Access 




The Location
Officially opened in September 2006, the Home Team Academy (HTA) is one of the seven departments of the Ministry of Home Affairs (MHA) in Singapore. It strives to be an internationally recognized Centre of Excellence which provides quality training and education in the areas of Law Enforcement and Homefront Security to Singapore police officers.  

The Challenge
The client had initially considered a proximity solution for this location but preferred a solution with a larger reading range and an enhanced price-performance ratio. In addition, the battery life of the tags was a major concern for both the system integrator and the client due to fast depletion of power. 

The Solution
Due to the uPASS reading distance advantages over traditional proximity readers and passive tag technology, Nedap AVI was chosen for this project.  A total of 3 uPASS readers and 100 windshield tags were installed at the facility.
