Transmission Surveillance (TRANSURV) System
Agency / Branch:
DOD / ARMY
The potential of cell phone use in asymmetric operations against coalition forces has grown exponentially and has expanded well beyond the now-familiar IED detonators. The ubiquitous cell phone is the easiest way for insurgents to communicate in order to coordinate attacks and reconnoiter facilities. A proper force protection plan will address this threat. The team of 21st Century Systems Incorporated (21CSI) and Missouri University of Science and Technology is pleased to propose to address this challenge with a counter surveillance concept called TRANSURV. This transmission surveillance tool is the synergistic pairing of RF DF equipment and video cameras to provide persistent perimeter surveillance without incurring a large manpower footprint. The RF sensors are used to cue the video cameras (slew-to-cue) which will slew to the direction indicated. Utilizing advanced video analytics, the scene will be analyzed for human presence and the operator notified with an alert and a recommended course of action. More than just a surveillance system, TRANSURV is decision support that enhances situational awareness and security. And, with 21CSI's extensive experience in decision support, service oriented architectures and video analytic technologies, and MST's expertise in RF detection, this team is the most qualified for this research.
