USE CASE: NSC3™ USE IN LARGE EVENT SECURITY
NSC3™ situational awareness system can help ensure security in large cultural event in many ways.
Take for example an annual music festival in a large open square in a modern European city. The festival is of open access and hosts over 10.000 visitors daily. The site can have a great number of bars, food stands and shop vendors.
Challenge is to ensure safety in such an open space with a lack of physical and technical security measures. There are a number of stakeholders who are involved in the event, like municipality staff, law enforcement officers, emergency responders (fire brigade, ambulance and hospital personnel), civil protection personnel, stall owners and vendors
NSC3™ situational awareness system has several key capabilities together in one service to co-ordinate security measures on site.
- Create tasks to involve all necessary personnel easily
- Military grade secured communications and situational awareness to authorized users’ everyday devices.
- Real time video streaming, allows you to always view latest image even in poor network conditions
- Wide selection of supported data sources
- Use everyday devices in the field to share any video stream into the system
- Use mobile phones as a radio with push to talk feature.
- Share written instructions or info with chat feature
- See location of users and cameras on map
- Dynamic cross organizational visual communications
- Real time data analysis from video feed, for example to detect weapons
These capabilities could be utilized in several ways between authorities
Establish aerial surveillance of the entire area by using drones in minutes for example by using tethered drones. With NSC3™ all security personnel can view the aerial image of the area in real- time on the field or in the office.
NSC3™ enables direct communication between emergency responders from different departments / agencies. It will contribute to a more coordinated and quicker emergency response. Multiple levels of task forces can be created, for example police can have their own task, but police officers could also belong to task including fire fighters and healthcare workers.
Connect video feed from any existing cameras (CCTV, IP cameras or USB) for all personnel to see in their own devices.
NSC3™ enables intelligent data algorithms to search threats and abnormalities from video or data feeds. Optional integrated multispectral and Teraherz or other millimeterwave cameras enable hidden object detection.
In case of problems, like a terrorist attack, NSC3™ can be used to co-ordinate the actions of responders by Push to Talk or Chat. Mobile teams can easily see the location of their activity on the map.
Between all stakeholders including vendors and / or voluntary staff
With NSC3™ mobile the communication system can easily be extended to all authorized stakeholders without compromising communications of the professional responders. For example, stall vendors can easily broadcast video feed from their mobile phones of any suspicious activity to security personnel. Real time live feed with location information on map of the situation enables a correct and timely response. Provides an easy way share information, lowers the barrier to report suspicious bags, vandalism or strange behaviour. Systems is so easy to use that minimal training is required and everybody can use their own existing equipment.
In the event of problems, like a terrorist attack, NSC3™ can be used for sending guidance and messages to all stakeholders in the area.
The NSC3 Platform™ is made up of these component apps:
NSC Web App™ a web application that provides a dashboard view through any device that supports a web browser. This allows for the Command Center and field locations to be on the same page throughout the deployment at the fire.
NSC Mobile™ enables the video from smartphones to be streamed and recorded and shared with team members. NSC Mobile™ also allows team members to see the video stream from drones and other team members phones. Other features of the mobile app are Push To Talk, a map and chat capability.
NSC Drone™ enables the video from the drone camera or cameras to be streamed live, recorded, and secured so that it can be used later for After Action Review, Training and for Evidence if needed.
NSC IOT™ enables integration of other devices (cameras, sensors, License Plate Readers…) into the platform. If your fleet of vehicles is equipped with mobile routers NSC3™ can add more capability to your investment.
