U.S. Navy Purchases iMove Surveillance System for Unnamed Base

Perimeter surveillance system automates with motion detection, high-res threat sensors


PORTLAND, Ore. -- iMove, Inc., the leading developer and supplier of state-of-the-art defense and homeland security surveillance solutions, announced a $720,000 contract for configuration and demonstration of iMove's wide-area surveillance system on a U.S. Navy base. The surveillance system meets key naval requirements, including seamless video coverage of large perimeters with automated motion detection effective to 100 meters outside the facility perimeter.

"The protection of high-value, critical assets is an excellent use for iMove's large-area surveillance systems," said John Herring, President and CEO of iMove. "As federal facilities become more focused on preventing catastrophic events, scanning cameras with narrow fields of view are no longer acceptable. Seamless video coverage of large areas is becoming a key requirement. iMove's immersive video system offers the ability to detect threats earlier and quickly assess if they are nuisance or real, which allows the facility to deploy the appropriate amount of force protection before a perimeter is compromised."

The system iMove is supplying the Navy is a maximum security perimeter surveillance system with fully automated motion detection, automated high resolution threat assessment sensors, long-term & real-time repositories, and multiple/remote console support. The system is configurable to address the needs of large-area military installations, nuclear power plants and storage facilities that have secured perimeters where movement is cause for an alarm. The system is specifically designed to integrate with existing sensors (i.e. door alarms, fence and pressure sensors etc.) to enhance their utility and effectiveness.

"iMove's systems are all designed to exploit existing intrusion detection sensors," said Rick Mandrell, VP Programs of iMove. "The goal is to leverage current infrastructure, while improving detection and threat assessment with continuous wide-area coverage. We greatly improve the Navy's ability to identify false and nuisance alarms and avoid unnecessary troop deployment while reducing their reaction time to real threats."
