Navy Selects Augusta Systems

Tuesday, September 09, 2008

Naval port and river security operations are expected to improve as a result of an intelligent, panoramic imaging system under development by Augusta Systems, Inc. Systems, provider of intelligent enterprise network technologies, has been awarded a $776,000 contract from the U.S. Navy's Office of Naval Research for the intelligent imaging system, built with the company's platform technologies.

The intelligent, system -- built upon Augusta Systems technologies -- is designed for use at fixed points or installed on unmanned vehicles. Relying on panoramic imaging technologies from partner EyeSee360, Inc., the system can provide 360-degree images from a single location – eliminating the need for multiple cameras -- and instantly process and wirelessly communicate the imaging information across military networks.

The intelligent system also features data fusion and change detection capabilities, meaning that algorithms installed on the system enable it to detect changes in multiple images of the same scene taken at different times, and transmit only relevant images back to naval personnel. This capability eliminates the need to transmit and analyze large quantities of raw imagery data, thus conserving network bandwidth and saving time for military personnel.

The Augusta Systems technologies that power the system are SensorBridge, EdgeFrontier and SensorPort. SensorBridge is a suite of Microsoft Visual Studio software components for building and managing intelligent networks, systems and applications -- featuring data from edge assets -- within an integrated development environment. EdgeFrontier is middleware for intelligent networks. SensorPort is a reconfigurable network appliance for distributed, intelligent processing at the edge of the network.
