The Homeland Protection mission is supporting the nation's homeland security by developing technology and systems to help prevent terrorist attacks within the U.S., to reduce the vulnerability of the U.S. to terrorism, and to minimize the damage and assist in the recovery from terrorist attacks. Current sponsors for this mission area include the Department of Homeland Security, Department of Defense, and other federal, state, and local entities. Efforts include architecture studies for the defense of civilians and facilities against potential biological attacks, development of the Enhanced Regional Situation Awareness system for the air defense of the National Capital Region, development of cyber-security technology for critical homeland infrastructure protection, and the evaluation of technologies for border and maritime security.

The Department of Homeland Security sponsors work on the Imaging System for Immersive Surveillance (ISIS). ISIS is a high-resolution, 360° immersive video surveillance system that supports real-time and forensic situational awareness in an urban environment.



Notice they have an American flag near it--the symbol of the police state.

DHS tests new security measures at Logan Airport

May 06, 2010
Geoffrey Harvey, PNNL, (509) 372-6083

High-resolution video camera provides unparalleled surveillance

BOSTON – The U.S. Department of Homeland Security's Science and Technology Directorate has launched a pilot project at Boston Logan International Airport to test and demonstrate new video surveillance security technology.  The Imaging System for Immersive Surveillance, or ISIS, provides unprecedented, high-resolution 360-degree camera coverage combined with video analytics software-high-tech advancements that address challenges faced by current-generation security systems.

While ISIS is designed for use in any environment where surveillance of large open areas is required, testing the system in an airport environment contributes to the Department's ongoing efforts to enhance aviation security.

DHS selected the Massachusetts Port Authority, the owner and operator of Logan Airport, to host the ISIS pilot, which is part of the DHS Wide Area Surveillance project.  The Massachusetts Institute of Technology Lincoln Laboratory in Lexington, Mass., developed the technology; the WAS project is managed by the Pacific Northwest National Laboratory in Richland, Wash.

"This surveillance system provides a persistent and high-resolution 360-degree perspective of the airport terminal," said PNNL Project Manager Doug MacDonald.  "The system automatically detects abnormal events and helps operators identify suspicious incidents in large, open areas with a resolution equivalent to dozens of HD television monitors."  

The ISIS system features include:

    * Continuous 100 megapixel video recording of the entire terminal
    * Simultaneously access to the live feed for multiple analysts to retrieve digitally captured scenes at any time for forensic review without disrupting the ongoing coverage
    * The ability to archive captured video
    * Designation of exclusion zones, or restricted areas where people are not normally present, which can be monitored and scanned for abnormal activity or suspicious items that may have been left behind or removed.

"This is a collaborative effort to bring our nation's leading research institutions together to develop and demonstrate enhanced surveillance technologies," said DHS Program Manager Dr. John Fortune.  "DHS welcomes Massport's involvement. Because of its important role in our nation's transportation infrastructure, Logan is an ideal location to conduct the evaluation."

DHS installed ISIS at Logan as a test bed to demonstrate a "proof-of-concept" system and show the utility and capability of the ISIS prototype compared to the standard CCTV systems currently in use. The pilot allows for system testing in an operational environment and evaluation by potential end users. A follow-on second generation system currently in development at Lincoln Laboratory will be considerably smaller, while offering even higher image resolution.

Last month, DHS Secretary Janet Napolitano received a first-hand demonstration of the ISIS technology from Fortune, lab, and airport officials while on a visit to Logan Airport.

"Massport welcomes the opportunity to help bring promising new security technologies to the point where they can be deployed throughout the country to enhance homeland security," said Director of Corporate Security for Massport, Dennis Treece. "This camera system is a great example of a locally-developed technology that can benefit from testing in a real-world, real-time operation."  

The effort is part of the DHS Homeland Security Advanced Research Project Agency, a division of S&T that is designed to develop cutting-edge technologies and provide high-payoff advances in capability to the Homeland Security community.  DHS has invested approximately $3 million through HSARPA to develop this technology and install the ISIS prototype at Logan. If successful, the pilot could pave the way for use of the system in other public venues and urban areas.

ISIS: New Video Camera Sees It All


ISIS takes new video-camera and image-stitching technology and bolts it to a ceiling, mounts it on a roof, or fastens it to a truck-mounted telescoping mast.

360° surveillance video promises high-res detail, multiple views, and DVR features

Traditional surveillance cameras can be of great assistance to law enforcement officers for a range of scenarios—canvassing a crowd for criminal activity during a Fourth of July celebration, searching for who left a suitcase bomb beneath a bench, or trying to pick out a terrorist who has fled the scene and blended into a teeming throng in the subway. But there are shortfalls. For starters, once they zoom in on a specific point of interest, they lose visual contact with the rest of the scene.

But a new video surveillance system currently being developed by the Department of Homeland Security’s Science and Technology Directorate (S&T) may soon give law enforcement an extra set of eyes. The Imaging System for Immersive Surveillance (or ISIS) takes new video camera and image-stitching technology and bolts it to a ceiling, mounts it on a roof, or fastens it to a truck-mounted telescoping mast.

Like a bug-eyed fisheye lens, ISIS sees v-e-r-y wide. But that’s where the similarity ends. Whereas a typical fisheye lens distorts the image and can only provide limited resolution, video from ISIS is perfectly detailed, edge-to-edge. That’s because the video is made from a series of individual cameras stitched into a single, live view—like a high-res video quilt.

“Coverage this sweeping, with detail this fine, requires a very high pixel count,” says program manager Dr. John Fortune, of S&T’s Infrastructure and Geophysical Division, “ISIS has a resolution capability of 100 megapixels.” That’s as detailed as 50 full-HDTV movies playing at once, with optical detail to spare. You can zoom in close…and closer…without losing clarity.

The stitching together of several images isn’t exactly cutting-edge magic. For years, creative photographers have used low-cost stitching software to create breathtaking high-res images (like that famous image of the National Mall from Inauguration Day 2009). But those are still images, created days or weeks after a scene was shot. ISIS is quilting video—in real time!And a unique interface allows you to maintain the full field of view, while a focal point of your choice can be magnified.

Other neat tricks—many of which are commercially available—will be provided by a suite of software applications called video analytics. One app can define a sacrosanct “exclusion zone,” for which ISIS provides an alert the moment it’s breached. Another lets the operator pick a target—a person, a package, or a pickup truck—and the detailed viewing window will tag it and follow it, automatically panning and tilting as needed. Video analytics at high resolution across a 360-degree field of view, coupled with the ability to follow objects against a cluttered background, would provide enhanced situational awareness as an incident unfolds.

In the event that a terrorist attack has occurred, forensic investigators can pore over the most recent video, using pan, zoom, and tilt controls to reconstruct who did what and when. Because these controls are virtual, different regions of a crime scene can feasibly be studied by separate investigative teams simultaneously.

Many of the ISIS capabilities were adapted from technology previously developed by MIT’s Lincoln Laboratory for military applications. With the help of technology experts from the Department of Energy’s Pacific Northwest National Laboratory, Lincoln Laboratory has built the current system with commercial off-the-shelf cameras, computers, image processing boards and software.

ISIS creators already have their eyes on a new and improved second generation model, complete with custom sensors and video boards, longer range cameras, higher resolution, a more efficient video format, and a discreet, chandelier-like frame—no bigger than a basketball. Eventually, the Department plans to develop a version of ISIS that will use infrared cameras to detect events that occur at night.

S&T formed a partnership with the Massachusetts Port Authority (Massport), and in December 2009, began an ISIS pilot at Logan International Airport, allowing potential Homeland Security end users the opportunity to evaluate the technology. Beyond the potential for enhancing security at our nation’s airports, if successful, the current testing at Logan could pave the way for the eventual deployment of ISIS to protect other critical venues.

That’s a good thing, says S&T’s Fortune. “We’ve seen that terrorists are determined to do us harm, and ISIS is a great example of one way we can improve our security by leveraging our strengths.”

Big Brother is watching in high definition

DHS' Science and Technology Directorate is testing a 360-degree, high-resolution video system at Boston airport

    * By Alice Lipowicz
    * May 07, 2010

The Homeland Security Department is testing a new 360-degree video surveillance system at Logan International Airport in Boston that is described as offering high-resolution imaging and analytics without the distortion of the typical fisheye lens.

DHS' Science and Technology Directorate partnered with the Massachusetts Port Authority to evaluate the new Imaging System for Immersive Surveillance (ISIS) technology. The significant new capability of the system is its high-definition, image-stitching technology that seamlessly melds together images from several cameras in real time and without the usual distortion, according to a May 6 news release from the department.

“Whereas a typical fisheye lens distorts the image and can only provide limited resolution, video from ISIS is perfectly detailed, edge-to-edge. That’s because the video is made from a series of individual cameras stitched into a single, live view — like a high-resolution video quilt,” the news release said.

The cameras have 100 megapixels each, as detailed as 50 high-definition movies. The interface of the camera allows you to maintain the full field of view, while simultaneously zooming in on areas of interest.

Analytic software applications allow users to define zones of interest and provide an alert if that zone is breached. Another application allows the operator to choose a target to be followed, such as a person, package or vehicle, and the cameras will automatically tag and follow the target across 360 degrees.

“Video analytics at high resolution across a 360-degree field of view, coupled with the ability to follow objects against a cluttered background, would provide enhanced situational awareness as an incident unfolds,” the news release said.

Many of the capabilities were adapted from technology previously developed by Massachusetts Institute of Technology’s Lincoln Laboratory for military applications. The Energy Department’s Pacific Northwest National Laboratory collaborated in building the new system.

TSA/DHS/IP6/NRO/WTO/Internet2 must comply with the "Self-Organizing" principals

All new data mining systems must comply with the "Self-Organizing" principals of the Universe (A philisophical idea run amuck). These data mining systems require protocol to comply with the following principals:

Strong dynamical non-linearity, often though not necessarily involving Positive feedback and Negative feedback
Pavolovian dog training, nudging, behavioral modification, mind control

Balance of exploitation and exploration
Very interesting to find the phrase "exploitation and exploration" here. This is an arbitrary balance which is impossible to control as there become less and less elites in control of they system. Undoubtably, it will always "evolve" into 100% exploitation.

Multiple interactions
This seems to be why there is no limit to the billions of cameras being distributed in every product we buy, the RFID explosion, and nanotech sensoring systems.

All eyes are opened, or opening, to the rights of man. The general spread of the light of science has already laid open to every view the palpable truth, that the mass of mankind has not been born with saddles on their backs, nor a favored few booted and spurred, ready to ride them legitimately
