Operational overview and interface demonstration
This scenario shows a single sensor WAVcam system deployed to overlook the entrance to the San Diego harbor, a critically important seaport. The installed sensor requires no control inputs from the system users; it continuously covers the entire 90º field of view and provides the entire view to system operators at a remotely located command center using standard wired or wireless communications paths.
Target movements are automatically detected. Highlighted targets and tracking history is presented effectively and intuitively to the system users. The WAVcam system operates as a stand alone or as an integrated part of a larger surveillance or domain awareness system via industry and government standard methods.
System operators employ their standard protocols for response and action team deployment using WAVcam’s persistent, wide field of view and full resolution windows to anticipate the need for actions and communicate the situations to the team. During the response activity, WAVcam continues to provide continuous video surveillance of the entire viewing area, ensuring that the system operators are alerted to any new actions that may be attempted by additional targets employing spoofing or distraction tactics. These additional actions may also be viewed in full resolution, allowing for very effective multiple-threat response.
During the engagement, operators are able to quickly review past events using WAVcam’s continuously stored video data and then immediately return to the current action. After the engagement the stored video and metadata is available for thorough after-action review and forensics. Intuitive and complete DVR controls, including an innovative drag-to-scan function, allow the operator to easily and quickly scan and find imagery segments of interest from up to 30 days (or more) in the past. A clip save function is used to mark and identify the segments as video clips for protected storage within the WAVcam system or to be exported to an external archive. These clips remain available for after-action review or other actionable purpose. Video from live images and clips can be selected and saved as standard movie files for export and playback with widely available computer media players.
