The Department of Homeland Security is seeking innovative highly-scalable information processing technologies to manage multimedia surveillance information networks. To address this need, Broadata Communications Inc. (BCI) proposes a highly innovative Network-centric Inter-channel Fusion (NIF) system solution. The NIF system is leveraged on a unique network-centric signal processing technique to automate inter-channel multimedia data compression and fusion, while these multimedia data are transmitting through a network. In other words, the NIF system is a network grid that consists of network nodes processing data collectively and on-the-fly. The NIF can automate sensor data processing, while significantly reducing required resources (bandwidth, storage, processing power, latency, etc.). In addition to the Homeland Security┬┐s surveillance information network management applications, the increased efficiency and simplicity of automated sensor data processing provided by NIF can have other security and monitoring applications, including: battlespace situation and threat assessment, terrorist video surveillance, perimeter defense, and equipment maintenance.
