SightLogix Outdoor Thermal Video Analytic System Protects North Hudson River Bridges
Princeton, NJ (June 27, 2012) – SightLogix thermal video analytics systems have been chosen by the New York State Bridge Authority (NYSBA) to protect five large North Hudson River bridges.
NYSBA is deploying SightLogix’ video perimeter security system to secure the Bear Mountain Bridge, Newburgh-Beacon Bridge, Mid-Hudson Bridge, Kingston-Rhinecliff Bridge and the Rip Van Winkle Bridge which together serve more than 1 million Hudson River crossings each week.
“Threats to infrastructure in our country continue to this day,” said NYSBA Executive Director Joseph Ruggiero. ”It is our obligation to protect these critical bridges and to do so in a comprehensive and cost-effective manner. These video analytic systems will play an important role in accomplishing that vital task.”
“Bridge security requires accurate, reliable intruder detection in a difficult waterside environment,” said John Romanowich, SightLogix President and CEO. “SightLogix systems have been designed specifically for securing critical infrastructure in these types of harsh outdoor environments. We’re pleased to have been selected by the New York State Bridge Authority to protect public infrastructure so vitally important to our nation’s transportation and commerce.”
The SightLogix perimeter security systems will be integrated by Transdyn, a leading systems integrator for intelligent transportation and security/surveillance systems that enables customers to rapidly respond to real-time conditions and emergency situations.
SightLogix technology has been successfully deployed to protect facilities throughout the world for a wide range of outdoor perimeter security applications. SightLogix SightSensors detect with a high degree of accuracy and provide clear, detailed images night and day.
On-board image processing is used to accurately detect a person entering a secure area and filter nuisance alarms such as small animals, birds, blowing debris or moving tree limbs. Upon detecting an intruder, the system determines the exact location of the intrusion and can automatically steer Pan Tilt Zoom cameras to zoom in and follow the intruder using PTZ tracking.
