Government High Security

Australian Government High Security

It doesn’t get more crucial than this. Submarines, F35 strike fighters, Tiger attack helicopters and Abraham Tanks are some of the assets protected by Optic Security Group via Type 1A security systems we provide to the Department of Defence and approved contractors.


We are specialists in this field and are certified to undertake these installations.

Type 1A


Australian Government agencies are sometimes required to use Type 1A security systems as endorsed by the Security Construction and Equipment Committee (SCEC). SCEC is an inter-departmental committee responsible for the evaluation of security equipment for use by Australian Government agencies, with the evaluation program managed by Australian Security Intelligence Organisation (ASIO) T4.


The Type 1A evaluation process involves a range of measures, including comprehensive breach testing, which ensures that Type-1A systems provide the highest levels of security.


In accordance with the Australian Government Protective Security Policy Framework, SCEC-approved Type 1A and Type 1 security alarm systems protect SECRET, TOP SECRET and certain codeword information where the compromise, loss of integrity or unavailability of the aggregate of information would cause extreme or catastrophic damage to Australia's national security.
