The Answer to Total Situational Awareness...
Situational Awareness is a concept closely involved with physical security information management (PSIM, see the white papers on this subject). It is usually defined as being aware of what is happening around you, at or near your physical location, or at some other location where you are supposed to be or where there are assets or people that you must protect.
It is an important idea in the context of both safety and security and is especially relevant where there is a possible risk or threat to the security of assets or the safety of people. Situational Awareness depends on perspective: if you don't have a view of what is around the corner / beyond the fence / out there in the dark, then you cannot be aware of any imminent threat located there.
So Situational Awareness varies from person to person depending on their location and also the perceptive tools available to them. Such tools include; radio contact with observers at different locations, vision enhancement such as thermal imaging or binoculars, statistical data regarding the probability of a given type of incident at a particular location (e.g. crime stats by post code), CCTV, radar, intelligent fence and video analytics.
Essential technologies for total Situational Awareness
► A range of camera types including PTZ, fixed dome, 360 and thermal
► Advanced video analytics / VCA
► Human surveillance (patrols, system operators) optimised via technology
Common gaps in Situational Awareness:
► No thermal imaging
► No automation (cause and effect)
► Ineffective command and control and workflow automation
► Lack of integration
► Preventive controls do not allow enough response time once triggered
