Port of Wilmington Installs Surveillance System

Tuesday, December 06, 2005
Port of Wilmington, Del. has deployed VistaScape's SiteIQ software to automate surveillance, enforce port security policy, and increase the effectiveness of its security staff in responding to and preventing violations. The selection of SiteIQ further extends VistaScape's market leadership in the maritime sector for software-based intelligent surveillance systems. SiteIQ is part of an overall security upgrade for the Port funded through $1.7 million in grants from the Transportation Security Administration and the Office of Domestic Preparedness. Advantech, Inc. of Dover, Del. is the security integrator for the Port. It partnered with Honeywell to provide and install the integrated video surveillance, access control, and digital video storage solutions. A full-service deepwater port and marine terminal, the Port handles more than 400 vessels per year with an annual import/export cargo tonnage of 5 million tons. It comprises more than 350 acres, including the largest dock-side cold storage facility in North America. SiteIQ collects sensor data from surveillance cameras and access control stations around the Port and provides a single three-dimensional map display for viewing current security conditions. Using a simple point-and-click interface, security managers at the Port can define virtual barriers and detection rules in SiteIQ. The solution automates monitoring based upon these criteria. Authorities are notified of potential problems via live video of the event to the command center, audible alarms, and alerts to officers on patrol. The Honeywell Pro-Watch software suite plays an integral role in securing the port. Originally developed for this exact purpose, Pro-watch has achieved a reputation as one of the industry's leading integrated access and video solutions. Pro-Watch integrates with multiple third-party systems, as well as custom interfaces, making it ideal for port security applications. In addition to Pro-Watch, the Port is using Honeywell Video Fusion DVR technology and other closed-circuit television (CCTV) products. This integration is one of the first between a major access control platform and intelligent video analysis software, allowing for complete information display and response from a single operator console.
