HUNTSVILLE, Ala. and Princeton, N.J. , April 15, 2009 -- Intergraph®, a leading global provider of geospatially powered software, and SightLogix, maker of outdoor intelligent video surveillance systems, have seamlessly integrated SightLogix’ GPS-based video analytic sensors with Intergraph’s scalable decision-support system for comprehensive detection, assessment, and response to security incidents.
The SightLogix Enterprise Security System is designed to detect, track and zoom in on intrusions using the SightLogix SightSensor™ and SightTracker™ over large perimeters and outdoor areas. When linked with the Intergraph system, GIS-registered target data regarding the size, velocity and exact bearings of a detected target are combined into an easy-to-assimilate, common operational picture.
“Security agencies around the world rely on Intergraph’s solutions to transform vast amounts of data into actionable intelligence,” said John K. Graham, president, Intergraph Security, Government and Infrastructure. “By integrating SightLogix’ video sensors into Intergraph’s scalable decision-support system, security personnel have an even greater ability to assess, detect, and respond to threats and incidents as they work to protect people and critical infrastructure.”
Capable of long-range detection in the harshest outdoor environment, SightLogix’ automated, GPS video analytics are well suited for locking down perimeters and buffer zones, while the Intergraph system displays and fuses multiple sensor activities into a single interface. The combination of GPS-enabled intelligence within a single, easy to understand interface provides the critical domain awareness necessary for a proactive security implementation.
“SightLogix’ geo-registered detection capabilities are best leveraged by a GIS-capable command and control system,” said John Romanowich, president and CEO of SightLogix. “Knowing the precise location and nature of a security intrusion is essential for areas under the responsibility of a large community of responders. Our partnership with Intergraph is a natural and logical extension, and proves the efficacy of a standards-based, open system security design.”
“Effective airport security requires immediate access to reliable intelligence,” said Lee Deal, VP of Engineering for Quatrotec, the integration firm that designed and implemented the Intergraph/SightLogix solution for San Francisco International Airport (SFO). “By integrating the SightLogix Thermal SightSensor with Intergraph’s decision-support system and the airport’s ground radar system, SFO’s Security Operations Center has a complete, long-range view over the airport – landside and waterside, day and night.”
The SightLogix/Intergraph integration is well suited for organizations that must coordinate various sensor technologies among multiple security teams for a unified and appropriate response. Security personnel at airports, transportation centers, border patrol, utilities, petroleum refineries, nuclear plants, financial institutions, and other organizations with large outdoor areas can all benefit from the actionable intelligence derived from this integrated solution.
