The newest addition is from RAE Systems, a California company which has made its mark with a variety of high-tech sensors for detecting chemicals, radiation and biological threats. Today the company announced that its sensor would be able to integrate with a system from digital surveillance company Aegison Corporation.
The integration of the two systems allows a detected event on an RAE sensor to link directly to video data. The system does so using Aegison video management interface, allowing RAE's sensor data to be superimposed in real-time on the recording system.
The system, while not available yet, is expected to be released in mid-summer and is the first of its kind to link such data. The integration of the two systems, of course, has obvious applications in homeland security and high-profile event security, allowing not only for faster investigations, but to provide up-to-the-second video on what's happening in a site that may have been contaminated.
According to RAE Systems, the application isn't just for security, but also has broad applicability to industrial situations.
