Meeting the performance needs of the next generation of radar systems that will be deployed by the military is spurring the development of more efficient and sensitive hardware components to go along with the rapid advances in signal processing techniques and bandwidth.The military uses radar for many purposes, including guiding missiles to targets, directing the firing of weapon systems, and providing long-distance surveillance and navigation information.
Car theft is a fruitful field of opportunity for today’s criminals as they seek new and innovative ways for gaining quick profits. Recent reports indicate that prior to committing theft, organized car-theft gangs are doing their homework. They are targeting specific car rental facilities, conducting exhaustive site-studies of the facilities to identify vulnerabilities that will make their job easier.
With new technologies -- such as virtualization, cloud computing and mobility -- come new threats to IT systems. The sophistication of those threats -- both internal and external -- has become a major concern for the federal government. In fact, cyber security is among the top priorities for the White House and Congress as evidenced by recent legislation and initiatives aimed at protecting sensitive data and intelligence, including health and personally identifiable information.
The New York City Marathon is the largest in the world. After the 2012 race was canceled due to Superstorm Sandy, a record number of runners turned out for the return of the marathon in 2013. More than 50,000 people finished the race, the most ever in any marathon. In addition to the runners, more than two million onlookers lined the 26.2-mile route as it wound through all five of New York City’s boroughs before concluding in Central Park.
The collection of information generated from the online activities of citizens, by both private and public interests, has become so widespread and pervasive that it has prompted several social commentators to label today’s digital-defined culture as “The Surveillance Age.” The moniker is an apt one, in part given the fact that nearly every sovereign state with the means is conducting high-tech surveillance programs, a practice that is considered by most to be integral to national security and ensuring the safety of the state and its citizens.

Rob Wolf tells GSN that NC4 products focus on situational awareness, and the company is at the IACP show to demonstrate its new NC4 SAFECOP product for state and local law enforcement. NC4 SAFECOP was developed in collaboration with the Tampa, FL police department and is a new crime fighting solution that changes the way officers police the streets by bringing them blogging capabilities which, combined with other police feeds and CAD data, display a graphic representation of crime almost immediately following an incident.

Dr. Banerjee points out that the typical command and control center of an airport, seaport, mass transit hub, utility or city center is a place with input from a number of different silos. The silos must be joined together, he says, so that management can first achieve situational awareness, then move on to situation management and situation reconstruction. That is what Physical Security Information (PSIM) is all about, he says, and it is what Nice’s Situator software offers to security personnel. It’s the ability to pull the silos together and know what to do next.
