360 Vision Technology enters strategic partnership with ISM

360 VISION Technology – the UK manufacturer of rugged HD, radar and thermal PTZ imaging cameras – has forged a strategic technology partnership with Integrated Security Manufacturing (ISM), the company behind the Genesys platform that provides integrated Command and Control management solutions. The partnership will deliver highly effective early warning perimeter protection solutions deemed to be vital for Critical National Infrastructure (CNI) sites.

Designed to protect such sites and high-security locations in general, the full range of 360 Vision Predator HD PTZ cameras and Predator Radar solutions devised by 360 Vision Technology are now fully integrated with the ISM Genesys platform, allowing electronic security system operators to benefit from radar tracking.

The Genesys platform provides overarching integration for all security-related systems. Due to its architecture, the platform is both scalable and cost-effective, enabling higher levels of automatic configurable redundancy and system scalability when compared with traditional Physical Security Information Management (PSIM)-focused systems.

Given their strong CNI and Centre for the Protection of National Infrastructure (CPNI) credentials, the partnership of 360 Vision Technology and ISM delivers a surveillance camera and radar detection/tracking solution that can be deployed within the most challenging of situations and environments (and, where required, even across multiple Control Rooms).

360 Vision Technology’s Predator Radar combined surveillance camera and radar unit has been deployed effectively for a great many high-security CNI applications. Predator Radar can track up to eight targets simultaneously to a range of 400 m diameter, making it ideal for securing the most expansive locations. ‘Intelligent Time Share’ alarm handling also ensures that multiple object alarms can be handled proportionally or by priority.

Predator Radar scans 360 degrees once every second. On detection, an alarm output can be integrated with the ISM Genesys control platform to provide activation and tracking alerts. In addition, the cameras’ advanced radar detection is unaffected by weather conditions. That being so, detection and alarm functionality continues even when adverse weather conditions are present.

Aiming for the ‘next level’

“We are witnessing a significant up-take of Predator Radar in CNI and high-security applications in general,” explained Sara Fisher, sales director at 360 Vision Technology. “This is not only due to the technology benefits or detection reliability, but also the significant installation and life-time cost benefits to be realized over and above the deployment of standard analytics or thermals in the same applications.”

Fisher concluded: “This new technology partnership with ISM allows us to showcase the benefits of Predator Radar and, quite literally, take it to the ‘next level’ within what is a feature-rich, world-class PSIM solution.”

For CNI end users in regulated industries, proof of compliance is critical. Genesys, which is a CPNI-approved PSIM platform, unifies the sub-systems and provides the central intelligence to deliver ‘Rules By Exception’ and the subsequential audited workflow from breaches. The solution was showcased at the recent CNI Security Group event held on board the HQS Wellington.

Referencing end users, ISM’s managing director Alan Riegler informed Security Matters: “Early detection, tracking and identification of movement can be critical for customer operations. For example, protestors, boats or drones approaching boundaries can all be detected, alerting the system operator. This is supported by autonomous tracking on the Genesys user interface, with supporting images delivered by the cameras. Ultimately, this technology partnership is a great example of two innovative British companies working collaboratively to deliver game-changing solutions for CNI end users around the world.”
