Powerful satellite imagery and geographic information systems provide the capability of identifying the location of critical infrastructure, integrating demographic, environmental, socioeconomic and other types of data and performing in depth near-real time performance of a wide range of relevant geospatial analysis and geographical representation on maps that empower the decision making process. The spatial analysis can be leveraged as an important data source for all homeland security applications such as infrastructure protection, emergency response, border surveillance, situational awareness, mission planning and crime analysis. Realizing the significance of good understanding of Geography and location based information for homeland security, Alkan CIT offers a fully fledged suite of digital maps supported by cutting edge technology that bring in the power of “location” to decision making
One of the most vital processes for homeland security is the Dynamic acquisition, routing, and retention of data and metadata from the multiple sources and data capturing tools and integrating it in one consistent database repository. Database is basically the processing engine to be fueled by various data sources to provide a contextualized output that can be analyzed by different software applications. The contents of the database need to be regularly updated in order to provide the required accurate results and actionable information.
Effectively protecting the nation’s airspace requires detecting threatening aircraft and cruise missiles and making informed decisions on how to address these threats, which makes the deployment of radars a must to effectively negate these threats. Generally Surveillance radars can be divided into three categories: ground-based, airborne, and space-based, all Providing a highly effective 24-hour surveillance and target acquisition capability, delivering wide area, all weather surveillance and reconnaissance imagery in near real time for peacekeeping, war fighting and homeland security needs. Security and surveillance radars provide full surveillance coverage ground level to altitudes up to 20,000 feet and allow the system to function as a multi-purpose sensor for simultaneous detection, alerting and tracking of aircraft, ships, boats, swimmers, vehicles and pedestrians.
