ViaLogy Signs Strategic Agreement With Swan IslandAugust 15, 2008
Combined service will enhance incident awareness by presenting data from multiple networked sensors via the Swan Island Networks' TIES platform, providing a common display of the various correlated data sources.
PASADENA, CA /PRNewswire-FirstCall/ -- ViaLogy LLC, the company that integrates information from IP-based sensor networks, announces a strategic partnership with Swan Island Networks Inc. of Portland, Oregon, a recognised leader in the design and deployment of next-generation sensitive information systems.
The two companies will combine Vialogy's SPM (Sensor Policy Manager) with TIES, Swan Island Networks' innovative managed service offering, to create an intelligent sensor network. SPM will collect alert information from multiple networked sensors and instantly present it in a tailored, pre-determined way using the TIES (Trusted Information Exchange Service) platform from Swan Island Networks. The process reduces to an integrated central screen the multiple displays that must now be monitored, reduces the number of human monitors that are now necessary, provides more immediate access to priority information, and results in quicker response time.
This capability introduces a powerful new tool to the physical security information management market. It provides an in-depth common operating picture (COP) in which sophisticated sensor data is correlated with geospatial information, breaking news feeds, open-source and proprietary data, alerts of all kinds, incident reports, points of interest, weather reports and forecasts, and more. Swan already has a substantial installed base of systems in place and hopes to incorporate SPM as a value-added service.
"Speed and diversity of information sources are critical to today's situational awareness," said Pete O'Dell, Founder/Director of Swan Island Networks. "As a result of our partnership with ViaLogy we can bring our customers on-site incident alerts fused with traffic and weather news, possible related incidents, global alerts and more, giving those customers an enhanced ability to prepare, prevent, respond to or recover from critical or catastrophic events."
"We are delighted that Swan Island and ViaLogy will be deploying SPM to address the requirement for improved and coordinated sensor monitoring in a networked environment," said Robert W. Dean, President and CEO of ViaLogy. "We offer turnkey networked sensor monitoring software for public and commercial enterprise. When integrated into Swan Island's TIES it provides complete visual awareness of dangerous and rapidly changing situations."
ViaLogy is a leading innovator of network-centric, real-time signal processing platforms for sensor applications. ViaLogy is currently deploying and designing computational systems, powered by its patented technologies, for applications in life sciences, public safety and security, surveillance, defense and geoseismology. Vialogy focuses on market driven problems where automation, timeliness, quality and reliability of information processing are essential. ViaLogy's core competency incorporates rapidly and accurately detecting weak signals buried in high noise background and clutter. This technology can be employed to solve problems involving sensor integration and information overload challenges involving video, telephony and control sensors, as well as for enhancement of numerous signal processing applications.
