What is SAMAE?

The Surveillance and Monitoring Assessment Exercise (SAMAE) is a computerised package which evaluates the capacity of CCTV and other high vigilance personnel to perform effectively and consistently. SAMAE allows you to select and place the right operators to ensure that your surveillance technology and systems are used optimally and fulfill their purpose.   Already used for assessing and selecting surveillance personnel in a number of high risk operations, SAMAE should be an essential part of any surveillance operation.


SAMAE has an established track record and a proven ability to identify the best people.
