Research Institution
Balfour Technologies is developing a deployable fourDscape[TM]-based Automated Situation Awareness (ASA) System that effectively manages large, distributed surveillance sensor suites and delivers to the user a correlated, integrated, seamless view of extensive areas under surveillance in an interactive 4D browser. During Phase I of this project a scalable system architecture was developed and successfully demonstrated with live, interactive fourDscape[TM]-based demonstrations. In Phase II we will develop a deployable system prototype based on this architecture. The prototype system will process, analyze and correlate a variety and multitude of sensor data feeds, such as video and radiological, extract objects of interest and develop for the user a temporal-spatial view of the area to provide comprehensive situation awareness in a single canvas. This surveillance management system will be deployed in at least two significant sites in the U.S., which will facilitate the enhancement of the prototype system based on user feedback and lessons learned in a real world environment. By the end of Phase II we will have a field-tested system ready for the commercial, government and military homeland security market, with the potential to be deployed at every critical infrastructure location and sensitive security area in every agency, utility, city, county and state in the country and along our borders and ports of entry.
