Research Institution
"ObjectVideo will assess the feasibility of developing an omni-directional situational awareness system for mast-mounted in-port video surveillance. An initial system design will be developed and an estimate of system performance will be assessed as afunction of sensor resolution, threat size, range, speed, and other relevant parameters. ObjectVideo will build on and adapt its patent pending object segmentation, background scene modeling, object detection, and tracking algorithms to design and assessthe surveillance system. An omni-directional sensor, potentially using super-resolution techniques will be used to provide a surround view and provide full 360¿ situational awareness. The final system when built in Phase II will be able to detect, track,classify, and alert Watchstanders through a situational awareness map-view display of potential threats to the ship. As an optional Phase II bridge task, ObjectVideo will provide the next level of system design and functional specifications. The proposedeffort will provide a feasibility assessment and initial design of a panoramic video surveillance system that can give real-time warning of potential terrorist attacks against ships in port. A mast-mounted 360¿ in-port video surveillance system, capable ofmonitoring watercraft around an in-port ship and people and vehicles pier side could provide a critical edge for responding and potentially interdicting attackers before they are in range t
