Integrated Gunshot Detection / HD Camera Demonstration at ASIS 2014

Bosch and Safety Dynamics, Inc. are proud to introduce breakthrough technology with the industry's first critical infrastructure-specific cameras directly controlled by a gunshot, audio anomaly event or perimeter breach alert.

Safety Dynamics, Inc. has integrated the AUTODOME IP 7000 HD and MIC IP 7000 HD PTZ camera families with its SENTRI Gunshot Detection and Localization platform to address threats presented by active shooter events and sniper attacks on critical infrastructure.

The SENTRI system recognizes gunshots and explosions and sends range and bearing details to the MIC IP 7000 HD and AUTODOME IP 7000 HD cameras, which can then locate the source of the event. The solution provides police with the ability to use audio and video for the identification of crimes in progress.

Attendees of ASIS International 2014 can see the combined solution in action at the booth of the Battelle Memorial Institute - #3952.

Safety Dynamics Integrates with Bosch HD Cameras for Critical Infrastructure and Public Safety Protection


Safety Dynamics, Inc. has integrated the AUTODOME IP 7000 HD and MIC IP 7000 HD PTZ camera families with its SENTRI Gunshot Detection and Localization platform to address threats presented by active shooter events and sniper attacks on critical infrastructure.

The SENTRI system recognizes gunshots and explosions and sends range and bearing details to the MIC IP 7000 HD and AUTODOME IP 7000 HD cameras, which can then locate the source of the event. The solution provides police with the ability to use audio and video for the identification of crimes in progress.
“By combining the advanced analytics of the SENTRI System with quality Bosch HD video, the results are very high detection rates, very low nuisance alarm rates and the most cost-efficient threat detection system available on the market, particularly for the nuclear, electricity, and oil and gas industries,” says Dave Lafferty, President, Scientific Technical Services, and former Technical Advisor, Chief Technology Office, BP.
AUTODOME IP 7000 HD and MIC IP 7000 HD PTZ cameras offer 720p resolution with starlight technology to deliver high definition video images in extreme low light situations, or provide 1080p resolution with wide dynamic range for maximum detail in areas with both bright and dark lighting conditions. This ensures that objects of interest can be easily identified in challenging lighting conditions.

PTZ cameras have typically lacked the speed needed to keep pace with SENTRI detection and localization of gunfire, particularly in rapid-fire scenarios.
“In terms of response times related to localizing an event source, Safety Dynamics’ tests have shown that AUTODOME IP 7000 HD and MIC IP 7000 HD  are up to the challenge,” says Lloyd Uliana, Business Development Engineer for Bosch. “Additionally, the shock and vibration as well as impact resistance ratings make the MIC IP 7000 HD cameras ideal for harsh outdoor environments, for use on mobile command centers, at public events, and for fixed deployments in urban centers.”
“The integration of SENTRI with AUTODOME IP 7000 HD and MIC IP 7000 HD creates the first critical infrastructure-specific cameras directly controlled by a gunshot, audio anomaly event or perimeter breach alert, providing first responders with immediate situational awareness, tactical warning and decision support,” says Sally Fernandez, President, Safety Dynamics, Inc. “High definition video images, image acquisition speed, detection speed, and accuracy of localization deliver to law enforcement actionable intelligence that speeds up their response time in active shooter scenarios.”

MIC Camera on Display at World Congress on Intelligent Transport Systems

At the 2014 World Congress on Intelligent Transport Systems, MG Squared will demonstrate the integration of its Lowering System with the MIC IP 7000 HD high-speed PTZ cameras. MG Squared’s Lowering System is a device used frequently in intelligent transportation system (ITS) and secure perimeter installations. The device makes it even easier and safer to install and maintain pole-mounted MIC IP 7000 HD cameras in any location, regardless of height.

With a Lowering System from MG Squared, MIC camera installation and maintenance can be performed on the ground by one technician, eliminating the need for bucket trucks, cone crews or lane closures. This provides tremendous cost savings as well as a more efficient and safer work process. It also frees design engineers from previous limitations on mounting heights, since pole and camera locations are no longer determined by where or how high a bucket truck can reach. 
“The combination of MIC cameras and Lowering Systems from MG Squared delivers added flexibility for customers to maintain and service the MIC throughout its long lifespan. We expect nine years of operation from this camera, and MG Squared helps customers take full advantage of this; significantly reducing the total cost of ownership for traffic operations and transportation authorities alike,” said Zareh Megerdoonian, Business Development Manager - ITS, for Bosch. “With the release of the new MIC IP 7000 HD cameras, Bosch now delivers industry-leading HD imaging to the market with a solution that can operate in brutal environments and extreme lighting conditions, while providing the added ease of Power over Ethernet (PoE) installation.”
The new MIC IP starlight 7000 HD delivers images in extreme low light situations and captures moving objects in 720p HD resolution at up to 60 frames per second. It provides video images where others fail, even down to 0.01 lux, and captures clear images in color down to 0.05 lux – when others switch to monochrome – to reveal accurate color details that support in vehicle identification. The MIC IP dynamic 7000 HD offers 1080p resolution and captures multiple exposures of the same scene for maximum detail in areas with both bright and dark lighting conditions, such as in tunnels or under highway overpasses. Wide dynamic range and intelligent backlight compensation ensure that moving objects are enhanced and can be easily identified.

The entire MIC family of cameras provides reliable surveillance in the most difficult outdoor locations, combining high-quality HD imaging with an IP68/NEMA 6P-rated IP architecture. The cameras withstand a wide range of conditions – from -76 to +140 degrees Fahrenheit with up to 100 percent humidity, as well as rain and snow, high wind gusts and significant vibration.

Likewise, the MG Squared Lowering Device has been proven to perform in the harshest conditions in installations throughout North America, Central America, Europe, the Middle East, Asia and Australia. MG Squared believes the successful integration of its system with the MIC cameras will be an added benefit to ITS and high-security applications for years to come.

MIC IP dynamic 7000 HD on display at 2014 Power Grid Resilience Summit

At the 2014 Power Grid Resilience Summit, September 8-10 in San Francisco, Security consultancy, The Security Oracle, Inc. (TSO), will display a MIC IP dynamic 7000 HD ruggedized PTZ camera from Bosch as a part of a suite of technology that comprises its Remote Control Active Denial System (RCADS).
In June 2014, TSO presented this scalable, turnkey Non-Lethal Threat-Based Systems Approach to the Federal Energy Regulatory Commission (FERC) and Edison Electric Institute (EEI) in Washington, DC.  “RCADS is a force-multiplying system that enables grid-connected owners and operators to effectively and affordably comply with NERC CIP 014,” says Charles Butler, CPP, CEO, TSO, Inc., and former EEI Security Committee Member. “This Threat-Based Systems Approach transforms current passive grid security into an affordable active denial physical protection system that will ‘Protect Against Attacks’ as required.”
When a threat is detected, RCADS can be used to remotely intercept and overpower an adversary from the safety of a security operations center prior to any significant damage occurring to site infrastructure. As a result, local law enforcement or security forces will have far more time to respond and successfully interdict the adversary.
“The MIC IP dynamic 7000 HD ruggedized PTZ was specifically selected due to its exceptionally quick and pin-point accurate slew-to-cue and long range visual target acquisition capabilities,” said Lloyd Uliana, Business Development Engineer for Bosch. “Its extensive use in extreme operational environments, its integration with Safety Dynamics, Inc.’s SENTRI Gunshot Detection and Localization Platform, and its pending cryptographically-secure mechanisms that meet Federal cybersecurity mandates ensure that the MIC IP dynamic 7000 HD is the ideal imaging platform for the protection of critical infrastructure in high risk environments.”
