Abstract: 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.
