AI-Powered Solutions to Augment Surveillance, Unmanned and Counter-UAS Systems

The problem

Behind the glossy veneer of a controlled customer demo, a surprising amount of “cutting-edge” technology simply does not live up to customer expectations when it enters the real world. Alarmingly, this is even true of Defence and Security, where operators are torn between their regular duties and a need to monitor their system constantly.

Now more than ever, operators and maintainers are calling for systems that are easier to use, which perform as promised and, above all, they need more automation. That’s where VIZGARD comes in…

What we do

Inspired by the same Silicon Valley thinking that brought you faster deliveries and self-driving cars, we’re harnessing computer vision and sensor fusion to give you, FORTIFAI. This innovative software-based “Artificial Intelligence (AI) Toolkit” has been designed to maximise the capability of your existing surveillance or unmanned system by allowing you to:

 

Find and track targets faster and more reliably

Reduce false-positives and negatives

Increase operator efficiency

Reduce costs with less bandwidth and data usage

Rapidly calibrate and align sensors

Stabilise video and improve visibility in low-light or fog

Vizgard drone ai best

Counter-UAV

Reduce false-alarm-fatigue with detection, classification and tracking of drones, birds, planes and helicopters

Mobile Surveillance

Low SWAP AI for rapid offline deployment to reduce operator burden during field operations

Perimeter Protection

See further with heat turbulence reduction, and autonomously verify PTZ camera detections

Wildlife Conservation

Trigger alerts for potential poachers and not the animals you are protecting

Force Protection

Apply AI to transform existing systems into intelligent teammates even in GPS-denied environments

Maritime Search

Find those who do not wish to be found with small object detection without human eye limitations

“AI Toolkit” for augmenting integrated security and surveillance systems

How it works

Connect your platform’s video stream(s) to our cloud, edge or on-premises FortifAi application to receive enhanced video output with scene metadata. This information can be displayed in your software and, along with data from other external sensors where available, will allow FORTIFAI to reduce the operator burden and increase system efficiency with task automation.

Key features

Lightweight

High performance and low SWAP

High Accuracy

AI trained on proprietary dataset of +100K real-world surveillance images

Real-time

35 ms latency on local 1080P video, and sub-second via internet

Track Anything

Draw a box around any object to start state-of-the-art AI-powered single object tracking

Secure Encryption

Image Enhancement

When every second counts, impaired performance from external factors such as heat turbulence, fog and platform movements can lead to undetected threats or delayed rescue. FORTIFAI allows the operator to reduce image degradation without compromising on detection and tracking capability.

FAQ

The standard FORTIFAI detection model locates and classifies people, cars, drones, birds, planes, faces, helicopters and boats. Users can initiate single object tracking with a single click or let the system choose the highest priority threat. Need an object type that we don’t yet support? Any object can be tracked by simply drawing a box around a target, or we can train a custom detection model to satisfy your unique use-case.

Although we detect faces as part of our face redaction offering, we do not apply any recognition algorithms that would tell us personal details about that person such as their name. We focus on detecting the presence of a person and their present activity, rather than who they are or where they come from.

We currently support RTSP, WebRTC, Https, MP4 files, YouTube, and SDI video inputs and can output RTSP and WebRTC. However, we are always increasing our supported formats so feel free to get in touch if you require a different format.

For edge applications, we recommend you use our VIZEDGE One or VIZEDGE Lite platforms which have been optimised to give you the very best performance. However, you can also source your own edge hardware, provided it uses NVIDIA Jetson Xavier NX or AGX. For those who wish to use a Windows 10-based system, we recommend a minimum of an i7 processor with 16GB RAM and Nvidia RTX 2070 graphics.

We do indeed! Through our VIZGARD Academic Program, students can enjoy free use of our state-of-the-art computer vision and machine learning capabilities for research purposes. Contact us using your academic email address and let us know what computer vision capability you need and we shall endeavour to help where we can.

To future-proof your system and benefit from zero upfront cost, we offer a Hardware as a Service (HaaS) model for our FORTIFAI and FORTISKY solutions. All plans come with 24/7 support, full warranty and a two input FortifAi licence. Perpetual licences are also available on request.

Our cloud AI streaming server can be deployed on your cloud instance for $0.35/hour, or you can use our cloud server for a fixed rate of $249/month + data usage.
