|Topic Information||H-SB06.1-004 - SIGNAL PROCESSING FOR A SOUTHERN BORDER SURVEILLANCE SYSTEM|
High-value facilities employ a variety of ground and video sensors to provide perimeter protection and to alert security personnel to possible incursions. Typically, the surveillance process requires human operators to view video and verify targets are present; unfortunately, due to the large number of video feeds, some alerts may go unnoticed. Automating the video surveillance components of this security system will allow for cost savings to be realized as the required personnel resources are reduced and security can focus on high-priority feeds with targets present. Toyon Research Corporation has developed a video analytics system, called VideoPlus, through a Department of Homeland Security (DHS) Small Business Innovative Research (SBIR) project. VideoPlus has found applicability in long-range surveillance applications along the US Southern Border. The goal of this Commercialization Readiness Pilot Program (CRPP) is to transition and commercialize the VideoPlus technology to the high-value facility protection community at sites within the United States. On this effort, Toyon will integrate VideoPlus with a deployed surveillance infrastructure and conduct a live Performance Test with third-party validation. Stakeholders will assess VideoPlus and report its capabilities and limitations for use in the high-value facility monitoring application. Upon completion of the effort, transition stakeholders will have obtained a greater understanding of how VideoPlus can be integrated for use in a variety of operational environments.
