New Delhi/Kolkata: Adopting the latest technology with respect to the security of infrastructure and other assets, Garden Reach Shipbuilders and Engineers Limited (GRSE), has commenced an artificial intelligence (AI) enabled high-end CCTV network across its five units in Kolkata at a cost of Rs 12.95 crore on Monday.

The state-of-the-art technology will enable surveillance of 152.81-acre area of the shipyard to ensure 24x7 safety and security of all its premises. The AI-enabled system will also prove to be a valuable tool during any investigation, detecting unauthorized intrusion or trespassing.

The AI-enabled CCTV system was set into operation at the Main Control room, GRSE Main Unit in the presence of GRSE’s Chairman & Managing Director (CMD) Rear Admiral VK Saxena IN (Retd), Broadcast Engineering Consultants India Limited’s (BECIL) CMD George Kuruvilla, GRSE’s Director (Shipbuilding) Cmde Sanjeev Nayyar IN (Retd.), GRSE’s Director (Finance) RK Dash and senior officials of GRSE and BECIL.

This flexible and intelligent security of GRSE’s infrastructure is the need of the hour for a defence PSU and the shipyard has deployed the CCTV Network to boost operational safety and productivity.

All the CCTV cameras across the units are integrated with each other. The special artificial intelligence feature that has been enabled in the CCTV system includes tracking unidentified goods and materials, automatic alarm in case of the unusual gathering of personnel, tracking alarm of camera tampering, automatic alarm for trespassing or intrusion and tracking of personnel or vehicles of dubious nature.

Since its inception as a Defence PSU in 1960, GRSE has built 788 platforms which include 107 warships to Maritime security forces, which is the highest number of warships built & delivered by any shipyard in the country, till the date. GRSE has the capability to construct 20 ships concurrently, using its modernized infrastructure and ‘Modular Integrated Construction Philosophy.’

GRSE has also been steering research and development for energy-efficient technologies that can be inducted into service on India’s inland waterways and also provide cost-effective solutions to other nations.
