Engineering & Manufacturing
Entrepreneurial imagination was the key to designing a surveillance tool that has the multi-tasking ability to detect, identify, capture, record, alert and report. What makes TTI’s WASP (Wireless Airport Surveillance Platform) system unique to the security industry, and the first-of-its-kind surveillance and monitoring tool, is that the manufacturing matrix of software and hardware components is all completed in-house, not bought from an outside source or produced by multi-vendors.
The software design was a product of the creative effort by the company’s founders, Tom and Dale Albright. Once the WASP software’s end-use objective was defined, the next step was to match the software architecture with appropriate hardware to make it work. The result: the “Aircraft Tail Number Identification System (ATNIS) was born.
ATNIS is a high-speed, outdoor, video surveillance platform for wired and wireless networks. Each ATNIS platform delivers information at the edge of the network.
- Event driven (user defined) video/images
- Alerts sent to user specified personnel
- Local data storage and processing
- 2.4, 4.9-5.825 gHz radios for long range/high speed data
- Full routing capabilities and integrated firewall
- Integrated power for accessories
The ATNIS platform can be deployed quickly regardless of terrain, weather and distance challenges. ATNIS seamlessly integrates with most commercially available head-end network equipment.
The ATNIS can accept up to 2 video inputs. While the unit was primarily designed for wireless networks, it can also be configured to operate in a wired network.
WASP units have built in user defined video detection zones and can store video images internally as well as transfer these images to another network via SFTP, Protocols supported are: TCP/IP, HTTP,FTP,SMTP, and SNMP. Image size is up to 768 x 576 pixels in JPEG or MPEG4 format. The WASP can be configured using a standard internet browser.
The unit is housed in a NEMA 4X enclosure with weather sealed input/output connectors and operates on 120/240 VAC, 60 Hertz.
WASP has been in continuous use at the Michael J. Smith Airport in Beaufort, NC since May 2004.
