WAVcam + Command Bridge Kept Eye on Baltimore Harbor 'Sailabration'

Monday, July 16, 2012

Using one 80 megapixel WAVcam, The CommandBridge Regional Domain Awareness application kept recent track of a crowded harbor

The electronic pairing offered safety and security personnel an unprecedented view of a 25+ square mile area of the harbor from north of Ft McHenry, west to the Hanover Street Bridge and southeast past the Francis Scott Key Bridge. With blue force tracking and the ability to correlate the video, AIS and radar tracks, first responders could see every boat in the harbor and knew its bearing and distance from the nearest fire boat or rescue vessel. LT Scott Brillman, Director of Finance, Public Information and Communications for the City of Baltimore Mayor's Office of Emergency Management said, "While commanding one of the largest maritime events in Baltimore's history and with thousands of boaters, military grey hulls, and tall ships in Baltimore's inner harbor, CommandBridge, a component of the Maritime Law Enforcement Information Network (MLEIN), coupled with the WAVcam imagery, gave us the technology to gain enhanced situational awareness, quickly identify vessels in distress, and provided strategic data to help Baltimore's command team and first responders facilitate quick, coordinated and controlled emergency response."

"ISA is proud to have provided WAVcam's visual situation awareness technology for the Maritime Law Enforcement Information Network during Maryland's Star-Spangled Sailabration.  We were honored by the invitation to work with The Mariner Group and add WAVcam's unique wide-area, high-resolution video to their CommandBridge capabilities for this important event," commented Stacy Kniffen, President of Innovative Signal Analysis, Inc.
