Tentacle: Multi-Camera Immersive Surveillance System
ABSTRACT: Primordial, Panoptic, and intuVision propose the development of Tentaclea multi-camera immersive surveillance system that synthesizes information from hundreds of video streams into an intuitive 3D representation. Team Primordial will start with our existing state-of-the-art baseline componentsPanoptic C-Thru, intuVision Panoptes, and intuVision Video Recallwhich already fully meet 6 and partially meet 7 of the topic"s 13 requirements. Fully met requirements include automatically extracting metadata for tracked entities, scaling to hundreds of sensors, enabling real-time queries, supporting customizable event notification, and enabling diverse sensor integration. Partially met requirements include supporting adaptive multi-spectral sensor fusion, dynamically moving multiple cameras, and combining feeds into a single representation. From this baseline, Team Primordial will develop Tentacle to fully meet 100% of the topic"s requirements. In phase I, we will update Panoptes to support geolocating entities and transmitting reduced-bandwidth streams. We will also prototype the Panoptic C-Thru 3D surveillance display, conduct a demonstration, and deliver a final report. Upon phase I"s completion, Tentacle will fully meet 9 of the requirements. In phase II, we will update Panoptes to support moving cameras, sensor fusion, and detecting construction activities. Upon phase II"s completion, Tentacle will fully meet all 13 of the topic"s requirements. BENEFIT: By fusing hundreds of video streams into a single synthesized 3D display and automatically flagging potential security events, Team Primordial anticipates that Tentacle will 1) increase an analyst"s event detection probability, 2) reduce response time, 3) decrease the analyst to sensor ratio, 4) reduce fatigue, 5) increase job satisfaction, and 6) reduce turnover. Tentacle will benefit large surveillance systems such as those found at airports, military bases, hotels, casinos, entertainment venues, federal buildings, hospitals, and large retail operations. Northrop Grumman has expressed an interest in deploying Tentacle to 114 United States embassies under an existing State Department contract. Raytheon has expressed an interest in deploying Tentacle to airports under an existing contract with the Chile Ministry of Defense and Administration.
