IntelliDAR®, Intelligent Video Platform

The Searidge intelligent video platform, IntelliDAR®, is a robust Non-Cooperative Surveillance System (NCSS) that provides detection, positioning, classification and tracking of all targets on an airport surface.

Real-time Positioning
The system processes video from a series of video sensors networked together to provide real-time geospatial positioning of all targets in a given area. The video captured by the cameras is then processed using state-of-the-art computer vision algorithms in order to provide: non-cooperative target detection, continuous tracking, geospatial positioning, and a variety of target attributes.

ASTERIX-Compliant Output & Video Archiving
IntelliDAR outputs surface movement reports in ASTERIX format for seamless integration with existing systems. Video information can be viewed in real-time and can be archived for post-event analysis and record keeping.

Coverage in Low Visibility Conditions
The IntelliDAR system uses commercial-off-the-shelf (COTS) cameras to allow for a highly scalable and robust platform while remaining extremely cost effective. Camera sensor sets incorporate the use of daylight/lowlight cameras and thermal infrared cameras for continuous monitoring of ground traffic in inclement weather and low visibility conditions providing comprehensive radar-like coverage. In addition, the cameras can be deployed around buildings and gate areas where radar-based coverage is typically problematic.

Versatile Display Options
Detection and tracking data can be displayed on a stand-alone 2-dimensional airport schematic, or fused with peripheral surface surveillance technology such as surface movement radar or multilateration. An out-the-window (OTW) view is also possible by using video from cameras deployed parallel to each other and -stitching- them together to provide a single panoramic view of an area. The ATC-grade digital display can also be upgraded to provide digital video zooming functionality allowing users the ability to pan, tilt and zoom any video streamed from high definition video sensors.

Flexible Deployment Options
IntelliDAR can be deployed as a stand-alone system or can augment existing surveillance and control systems. The flexibility of the system allows airports to deploy the platform to address specific problem areas initially, and easily add more sensors to provide additional coverage as required.
