ObjectVideo Wins DARPA Award

Wednesday, September 15, 2004
ObjectVideo won a $750,000 award from the Defense Advanced Research Projects Agency’s (DARPA) Small Business Technology Transfer (STTR) Phase II program to continue to research and develop night vision video surveillance technologies. “This second award from DARPA is a terrific validation of the expertise of our scientists as well as critical to helping us continue to develop cutting-edge security technologies absolutely necessary to defending our homeland,” said Alan Lipton, chief technology officer of ObjectVideo. “A successful project will demonstrate the world's most advanced nighttime video surveillance system.” ObjectVideo’s patented intelligent video surveillance software, based on artificial intelligence called "computer vision," runs all objects in a camera's view against threat-specific pre-programmed rules. When an object violates a rule, for example, when a small boat loiters near a ship or an airport passenger enters an off-limits area, the software alerts security personnel by phone, pager, email or an alert console.
