Silver Spring, Md. (PRWEB) February 09, 2016
The Security Industry Association has named Peter Michael of Science Applications International Corporation (SAIC) as its 2015 Committee Chair of the Year for his significant contributions to the security industry.
With this award, SIA recognizes Mr. Michael for leading industry efforts to revise and update the AG-01 Architectural Graphics Standard–CAD Symbols for Security System Layout Standard 3.0.
AG-01 is a collection of architectural graphics for security intended for use by architects, building contractors, system integrators, electrical contractors and security managers who use CAD to produce construction drawings, shop drawings and installation/as-built drawings, and physical security system layouts.
SIA Chairman V. John Stroia will present the 2015 SIA Committee Chair of the Year Award to Mr. Michael at The Advance, SIA's annual membership meeting, scheduled to occur on Tuesday, April 5, 2016, during ISC West.
"I sincerely appreciate this honor from Security Industry Association. The vital work that went into this revision of AG-01 was important for keeping with the times. The revisions included, among other changes, enhanced symbols, updated technologies such as sonar and radar, and a new power section," said Mr. Michael. "I would like to thank all the work contributed by the SIA Committee Members and SIA Staff, especially Mia Smith, for helping us update the standard."
"The update to the AG-01 Architectural Graphics Standard was important not only to the security industry but also to architecture and engineering firms, particularly as they face more and more demands to build security into new buildings from the ground-up," said SIA Chairman Stroia. "I applaud Peter Michael for his capable leadership of the initiative to keep this standard up with the times in which we live."
Mr. Stroia will present SIA award recipients, including the SIA Chairman's Award, Sandy Jones Volunteer of the Year Award, and SIA Committee Chair of the Year Award at The Advance, held during ISC West at the Sands Expo and Convention Center in Las Vegas, Nev., on Tuesday, April 5.
