Standing Watch

July 2004
Sarasota Magazine;Summer2004, Vol. 26 Issue 10, pB7
The article focuses on a computerized surveillance system that detects changes in the view of boats as seen from seashores. An alert flashes on the security team's monitoring system and in seconds, a response is mobilized, long before the threat is close enough to do harm. Anyone who needs to monitor a large area and have true situational awareness can benefit from this technology. The system is named "Guardian WATCH" that is based on sophisticated software that identifies changes, or anomalies, in a typical video view or other sensor condition. It can identify what is significant movement and what is just white caps or swaying palm fronds.
