Paper Abstract

We describe a novel system called V-Sentinel (Virtual Sentinel) that offers a unique solution for situational awareness, assessment, and response support for security and military applications. Unlike traditional surveillance systems that display 2D videos or images on separate windows/screens, thereby providing no integration of information, no high-level scene comprehension, and no situational awareness, the V-Sentinel provides users a complete global view of entire surveillance scene including 3D geospatial models of the environment, aerial and terrestrial imagery, real-time videos, and dynamic sensor alarm/status designators - all on one screen, and from arbitrary viewpoints. This paper discusses the system design and integration of various capabilities to create a V-Sentinel system, and the results from our demonstrations and performance evaluations of the system to several government agencies and defense contractors for military and national security applications.
