Port of San Francisco, Lake Charles, Puget Sound, Chesapeake Bay and Port of Fourchon follow Baltimore Police Department's lead as purchasers of Vumii's long range night vision surveillance technology.
Port security professionals face a unique set of security and surveillance challenges due to the lack of lighting and difficulty in achieving situational awareness across large and vulnerable waterway environments. As a result, ports across the United States are seeking solutions that enable law enforcement officials and others who patrol these ports to detect, recognize, and identify security threats during the day or in complete darkness.
Many agencies and organizations are implementing and using award-winning security cameras from Vumii Imaging, Inc. , a developer and manufacturer of innovative high-quality thermal and near-infrared illumination cameras.
One of the first agencies to choose Vumii technology is the Baltimore Police Department (BPD). Tasked with the challenge of protecting and serving the citizens within Maryland's largest municipality, the BPD not only protects the area's streets but also has shared responsibility for safeguarding the city's port and historic Fort McHenry.
BPD needed technology that would allow security operators to both detect threats at long distances and then assess the details to determine the level of security, safety, and environmental threats at long distances around Baltimore waterways and bridges. To address these requirements BPD chose Vumii's thermal and active illumination technology to meet the agency's long range, round-the-clock requirements.
