U.S. Coast Guard Prosecutes Boat Hit-and-Run

NAPERVILLE, IL - The United States Coast Guard recently began using 4G-LTE surveillance systems from TacticalVIDEO to monitor the Sabine-Naches waterway in Port Arthur, TX. The project developed after an oil tanker collided with a barge in 2010, causing 450,000 gallons of oil to spill out into the water.

In a recent incident on 12/11/12 at 1:23 AM, a massive barge veered off course, colliding with a dock and several parked boats. The barge continued to travel without documenting the collision. Much to the barge driver’s surprise, the Coast Guard and Jefferson County Sheriff had a live front row seat to the collision.

Detailed high definition images from TacticalVIDEO enabled immediate response and prosecution. The images also facilitated official documentation of naval telemetry data from the collision. The U.S. Coast Guard approved release of this information.

TacticalVIDEO Provisions Equipment for Verizon Wireless “Colt” Fleet

CHICAGO, Illinois – The fleet of rapid response vehicles deployed by Verizon Wireless for emergency amplification of cellular service now have an extra set of eyes from TacticalVIDEO.  The vehicles, code named “Colts”, became permanently outfitted with wireless surveillance equipment to enhance perimeter security.

With no existing surveillance systems installed to protect their assets, the Verizon fleet needed a permanent, durable solution that could withstand the constant travel demands of the Colt vehicles.

A wireless surveillance platform from TacticalVIDEO, known as the “Matrix”, is now installed on each of the four vehicles in the Verizon fleet.  A Matrix is a single investment that supports many mission objectives from a small, rugged unit, using plug and play cameras.  A TacticalVIDEO Matrix is a stand-alone unit about the size of a lunch box, capable of secure wireless video communication over the cellular network.

TacticalVIDEO completed the install prior to the 2012 N.A.T.O. Summit in Chicago, IL.  Due to increased demands on the cellular network during the event, Colt vehicles appeared near the Summit to provide temporary support for the existing Verizon Wireless cellular infrastructure. 

The Matrix units from TacticalVIDEO are now the permanent watchdogs over Verizon’s fleet during all future deployments.

Jefferson County, TX builds state-of-the-art system for waterway surveillance

PORT ARTHUR, Texas – Industrial cargo ships will navigate port safely and more efficiently, under the watch of the Jefferson County Sherriff and The United States Coast Guard.  Extra sets of eyes in the form of cutting edge video surveillance equipment from TacticalVIDEO, are now permanently securing Port Arthur.

The project developed through a long-term effort to improve security of the Sabine-Naches waterway.  In 2010, an oil tanker collided with a barge, causing 450,000 gallons of oil to spill out into the water alongside Port Arthur.

To prevent another disaster, seven camera systems from TacticalVIDEO will be installed at critical locations along the waterway.  Each camera will have hemispherical range of motion, allowing the cameras to cover a wide field of view.  Automated motion tracking sensors enable the cameras to survey an area autonomously, and alert the proper personnel when preconfigured activity occurs.  Combined with the ability to zoom in and read lettering on ships from a mile away, the cameras will provide navigational assistance to increase safety near bridges and Coast Guard navigation towers.

Additionally, TacticalVIDEO cameras are optimized by Verizon Wireless, allowing for completely wireless operation.  Thus, cameras are not permanently tied down to one location, and are easily relocated on demand.

Installation of the TacticalVIDEO camera system is scheduled for July-August 2012.
