HD cameras to replace control tower in ground-breaking revamp at London City Airport

Case study In what is believed to be a first for a UK airport, a remote monitoring system based on high definition video cameras is to replace the physical control tower at London City Airport. The digital air traffic control tower will be operated some 100 miles from the airport at a new control room in Swanwick, Hampshire and will be managed by NATS, the air traffic control service. High definition cameras The system developed by Saab Digital Air Traffic Solutions in conjunction with the Swedish air traffic control service, LFV will consist of a new unmanned tower, at the top of which will be 14 high definition and two PTZ cameras.

The cameras will combine to provide a full 360-degree view of the airfield just like that provided by a conventional tower but at a level of detail greater than the human eye and with new viewing tools that, it s claimed, will modernise and improve air traffic management. The images will be viewed at a new facility which will resemble a modern CCTV control room at the NATS site in Swanwick, which also controls the skies over southern England. The control room will feature a curved video wall of screens, with images stitched together to provide a virtual, panoramic view of the airport. embedded content The realism will be enhanced with an audio feed from the airfield and radar readings from the skies above London, to instruct aircraft and oversee movements. Saab says it started developing the digital air traffic solution in response to the need to provide a more efficient way of handling air traffic control, particularly for smaller airports where air traffic control can account for 30-40% of operating costs. The remote solution means that air traffic control costs can be shared, with a number of airports being managed simultaneously or according to demand at any particular time. The first digital control tower was established at rnsk ldsvik airport in northern Sweden as recently as 2015, with Sundsvall airport being added later and a third airport, Link ping, up and running by summer 2017. The control room in Sundsvall features a large row of 55-inch screens showing a window-like panoramic view of each airport. Difficult light conditions The camera technology actually makes it easier for air traffic controllers to cope with difficult light conditions, such as direct sunlight or reflections from snow, so they can follow an aircraft that is climbing without being dazzled.

Other types of data, such as weather and wind force, can be integrated into the same view on the screen, providing a more enhanced situational awareness. Not only does the remote air traffic control system comply with existing regulations but it also enables the further enhancement of safety, according to Per Ahl, sales director at Saab Digital Air Traffic Solutions. This is because: Cameras can provide better night vision Advanced image processing can detect potential dangers such as equipment left on the airfield Target tracking technology via radar and camera can detect and highlight incoming aircraft, making it easier for air traffic controllers to monitor them Information overlaid on screen can display everything from weather and visibility to the identity of aircraft and vehicles. The cameras also feature specially designed metal housings to prevent image interference on the lens from insects and small animals. Enhanced situational awareness The image viewing is combined with other systems which controllers use to manage air traffic, such as radar displays, navigation aids and information about flight plans. By combining LFV s unique operational experience with Saab s world class technology solutions, we can drive the whole process forward from planning to commissioning remote air traffic control, said Johan Klintberg, CEO of Saab Digital Air Traffic Solutions. We offer smart digital solutions so that data can be used in several locations to streamline traffic flows around an airport, both in the air and on the ground. As we are pioneering digital air traffic management, the market has shown large interest in our products and services. Mike Stoller, Director of Airports at NATS, said: Digital towers are going to transform the way air traffic services are provided at airports by providing real safety, operational and efficiency benefits.

We are delighted that London City Airport has chosen to work with us to deliver what will be the first of its kind in the UK. High-rise cameras The 50-metre camera tower which will be located in the airport s long-stay car park in line with the mid-way point of the runway was approved by the London Borough of Newham in December 2016. Construction of the tower is due to be completed in 2018, followed by more than a year of testing and training, during which the existing tower will continue to operate. The digital tower will become fully operational in 2019. London City Airport which this year turns 30 years old is also beginning a 350m development programme to help cater for an extra two million passengers a year by 2025. Facilities will include seven new aircraft stands to accommodate next generation aircraft, a parallel taxiway to maximise runway capacity, and an extension to the passenger terminal.

The future of video surveillance amid the rise of artificial intelligence

A vast majority of recorded video data is never viewed. This isn t for a lack of interesting content or inadequate resources, but rather a gradual decline in human attention spans. Adding more cameras increases the amount of video data collected, but if it s not viewed, the useful information is missed.

There is an imbalance between the amount of video data collected and the human attention available to effectively mine that data. As security technology continues to evolve, exciting developments are taking place with the inclusion of artificial intelligence (AI). Powerful tools are being created that will allow us to modify our approach to video search. Site-wide intelligence Effective search uses a wealth of data to find necessary information. A person conducting a search needs to answer who, what, when and where, not just in the context of a single camera, but across an entire site. This is where the need for AI comes in. Avigilon Appearance Search video analytics technology is a sophisticated deep learning AI search engine for video data. It sorts through hours of footage to quickly locate a specific person or vehicle across all cameras on a site. With this technology, users can initiate a search by simply clicking on a button and selecting to search for all instances of a person or vehicle of interest across recorded video.

embedded content Looking to the future Using AI in video search can help reduce hours of work to minutes, managing resources so that site security is more effective and efficient. The continued evolution of AI will provide security personnel with even more powerful tools not just for forensic purposes, but for real time event response. By designing video surveillance search technology to be as simple to use as searching the internet, Avigilon is better focusing human attention on what matters most, to dramatically change the way users interact with their security systems.

Qognify announces deeper integration with Bosch s suite of network cameras

Integration PSIM pioneer Qognify has expanded the integration of its Situator and VisionHub platforms with Bosch s network security cameras. Operators can control and manage Bosch cameras centrally through Situator, including PTZ and PTZ-like control for moving and fixed cameras, automatic triggering of processes when predefined incidents occur based on pre-defined alarm rules. These rules are based on video analytics built into the camera, playback via local camera storage and camera tampering detection.

The integration of Bosch s FLEXIDOME IP panoramic 7000 camera with Qognify VisionHub gives customers access to dewarping technology that eliminates fish eye lens distortion, provides 360 of view without blind spots, and an undistorted overview image. Customers can digitally pan, tilt and zoom to focus on details without sacrificing the bigger picture, says Qognify. A single device can accommodate wide coverage and achieve a normal view from an otherwise distorted or reversed image. Bosch intelligent dynamic noise reduction, meanwhile, optimises storage capacity and eases network load. Distinguishing between noise and relevant information, it only uses bandwidth when required and slashes the camera s bitrate by up to 50% and therefore the total cost of ownership. VisionHub also helps security departments avoid network overload during working hours thanks to the automated, scheduled transfer from camera on-board storage to the centre. It also restores missing video from the camera s on-board storage. Qognify s VisionHub integrates with the video analytics platform built-in to Bosch cameras. The integration also supports the central operation, on the recorder, of Qognify s video analytics suite.

Qognify says the combination of edge-based analytics (courtesy of Bosch) and server-based analytics (from Qognify) gives designers of CCTV solutions maximum flexibility. When mission-critical solutions are involved, it is essential that stringent quality checks are taken. Qognify s solutions were tested to excel in multiple integrations, said Rudolf Spielberger, head of the integration partner program at Bosch Security Systems. Our strategic cooperation with Qognify is substantially enhancing the levels of security and delivering clear and quantifiable business advantages to our customers. Eran Noam, VP of global strategic partnerships of Qognify, said: We are committed to advancing integration with leading technology partners and are proud of our integration with Bosch to yield a complete, tested and field-proven solution. It s important that organizations have confidence in integrations so they can leverage the broad range of excellent, integrated products in today s security marketplace.
