Surveillance

When we hear the word “Surveillance”, most of us think of cameras – like in Video Surveillance – and while that definition is partly accurate, it is actually too narrow in scope to define what Surveillance is all about. It is equivalent to thinking of just Apples, if we hear the word “Fruit”.

Our vision of Surveillance is bigger. We define surveillance as anything that adds real-time or historical (past-time) visibility, knowledge or awareness to anything of importance.

Modern surveillance includes things like: Image, Sound, Light, Motion, Vibration, Temperature, Humidity, Stratification, Environmental changes and essentially anything that can be captured showing a value, state or change of state over time. This is also sometimes generally referred to as Telemetry.

The delivery, detection and collection tools and methods of surveillance include Sensors of all kinds, the Internet, Satellite, Drone, Human, Drop & Collect, Store & Forward or other advanced gathering vehicles. And all of these can be overt or covert in nature.

We view Surveillance as a key part of modern Intelligence.
