system has a significant benefit for “Green Applications” and a major
will be made to advance this parallel opportunity.
Configuration, High Value 24/7 Facilities:
The advanced configuration is as shown:
The IR cameras communicate directly to a central computer using "cloud
computing" time regristered data compression. This configuration
makes HarmAlarm a self-contained system. This requires the IR
cameras to have additional functions: GPS, Battery powered with Solar
re-charging, Target data compression, and target still frame
capture. The wire-less link is bi-directional for command and
This configuration must accommodate a
scenario that has a mixture of targets. These targets are:
Workers, Security Personnel, civilians (vendors), and unauthorized
threats. The command and control is locally based.
Communicates are required for workers (instructions to avoid threats)
and Security Personnel , (real time threat alert, threat description
and threat location). Civilian targets have been prescreened and
have received authorization to enter the facility with an RFID badge
for identification and tracking. The communication system is
fully encrypted and secured. The Security System provides hazard
detection and notification for mechanical failures and accidents.
Detection of abnormal heat sources (a fire) is a typical example.
The 24/7 High Value Facility is the most demanding of the applications
because the system must properly identify four different target forms
and provide the proper response. It is assumed the threat is
sophisticated and encryption of both data links and command and control
are essential. Self-contained opperation of each IR camera is

three configurations will meet most of our applications. The Basic is
the first product to be launched aimed at Home and Small Factory
applications. The Advanced
Configuration will build upon lessons learned from the Basic
and will follow at a time determined by future events. The
introduction of the High Value
Configuration will be market driven. The need for such a
system may out weigh the economic market benefit accelerating its
