Securing Critical Infrastructure with Intelligent Video

Challenges
to Securing Critical Infrastructure

Safeguarding a nation’s power plants, water supply, petrochemical facilities, bridges, dams and other critical infrastructure against terrorist or criminal activities is a vital yet extremely difficult endeavor. These high-risk structures pose serious challenges to security due to sprawling facilities, large perimeters, water borders and other unique features.

When it comes to protecting a nation’s citizens and economy, there is no room for error. Yet, CCTV, access control and motion detection systems alone provide an incomplete picture that can lead to security breaches, false alarms, tactical errors and misused resources.

Expansive sites and lights-out facilities make human monitoring of CCTV systems impractical, which means their passive recording capabilities are used for forensics, not prevention. Similarly, access control systems can only indicate when a door has been opened with an access card, which leaves secure areas vulnerable to tailgating violations.

Motion detection systems provide even less protection, as they simply detect motion without distinguishing true threats from insignificant motion such as trees being blown by the wind. These systems often generate false alarms, keeping security personnel from addressing real threats. And, in a world of heightened security, false alarms are worse than no alarms because they train security personnel to ignore all potential threats.

Improve Security by Integrating Existing Systems with Intelligent Video

By integrating with existing security systems, intelligent video offers the situational awareness necessary to protect critical infrastructure in the most comprehensive, yet cost-effective manner possible.

Easy integration with CCTV, access control, radar, sonar, GIS and other systems provides security personnel with a centralized solution for managing long- and short-range surveillance and incident response.

Intelligent video software can automatically alert security personnel to perimeter intrusions, access violations or suspicious behavior, which can then be evaluated based on data from various integrated systems. Alerts can also be sent wirelessly to roaming patrols for an immediate response.

Higher accuracy of threat detection enables security staff to respond to real threats more effectively, avoiding false alarms and wasted resources. The end result is an integrated, cost-effective solution that offers actionable 24/7 surveillance without requiring wholesale changes to existing infrastructure.

THE CASE FOR THE SMARTCATCH INTEGRATED INTELLIGENT VIDEO SYSTEM

SmartCatch provides the most comprehensive, accurate and advanced site-wide intelligent video surveillance solution available. With true behavior recognition capabilities, SmartCatch can detect suspicious behaviors that threaten safety and security in real time, alerting the appropriate security staff for an effective and efficient response.

Unlike other intelligent video solutions that merely integrate with existing CCTV cameras, SmartCatch maximizes investment in other security systems, including access control, RFID and biometrics. By integrating video behavior analysis with authentication devices, situational awareness is heightened dramatically. Moreover, SmartCatch’s varied behavior modules can be used in any indoor or outdoor setting, regardless of water borders or weather conditions.

Finally, SmartCatch uses state-of-the-art machine learning, multiple object trajectory tracking and human reasoning technology, which consistently achieves the industry’s highest accuracy by detecting violations and eliminating the false alarms caused by motion detection systems or simple object tracking solutions.

smartCatch in aCtion at a Fuel Depot

SmartCatch is currently protecting critical infrastructure across the globe. One implementation at a fuel depot provides an excellent example of how intelligent video can guard against terrorist attacks, criminal activities or employee misconduct.

Not surprisingly, the facility’s top security priorities involve preventing perimeter intrusions and controlling access. By integrating with existing CCTV, access control, radar and sonar systems, SmartCatch actively monitors a large perimeter compromised by a significant water border.

SmartCatch’s behavior modules automatically detect suspicious behavior in all weather conditions. For a perimeter intrusion, the system ties into CCTV and geographic information systems to track the intruder and relay the location to security operations. Prior to SmartCatch, the facility relied on motion detection systems to identify potential perimeter intrusions. However, this approach led to frequent false alarms, which were resource intensive and costly.

SmartCatch was able to strengthen the facility’s existing access control system by automatically identifying human and vehicle tailgating violations.As vehicles approach an entry control point, SmartCatch analyzes CCTV video to make sure only one vehicle enters per access card. A similar process ensures that only one employee per access card is able to enter a secure area. Security is further enhanced by the ability to trigger alerts if people or vehicles are loitering outside restricted areas, or if these areas are accessed outside of designated hours.

Since implementing SmartCatch, the facility has significantly reduced security costs by virtually eliminating false alarms and reducing human surveillance expenses.

SMARTCATCH TECHNOLOGY

The SmartCatch Intelligent Video Surveillance Platform offers a unique distributed architecture that is easily deployed on a few cameras or on thousands across a large organization. Multiple behaviors are available and can run in any combination to provide comprehensive coverage.
SmartCatch includes a complete set of application programming interfaces (APIs) for integration, customization of the user interface and tailoring applications. It works with existing CCTV and security infrastructures such as access control systems, biometrics and RFID. Alerts are delivered in real time to a wide variety of devices including pagers, PDAs and email. SmartCatch runs on industry standard hardware and operating systems.

MINIMIZE SECURITY COSTS AND MAXIMIZE EXISTING INVESTMENT

SmartCatch Intelligent Video provides a measurable return on investment by significantly reducing fines, delays, theft, damage and labor costs.
The ability to automatically monitor thousands of security cameras enables airports to improve security with fewer personnel. The improved security leads to fewer TSA fines and reduced loss from theft or damage to critical airport infrastructure or high-value assets. Finally, SmartCatch provides further value by helping to avoid costly security-related delays and by leveraging investments in existing security systems.
