Hexagon adds end-to-end 3D security surveillance capabilities with the acquisition of TACTICAWARE
TACTICAWARE's flagship solution, Accur8vision, is a volumetric (entire space) detection security system offering 3D surveillance. Unlike conventional systems that typically only monitor perimeters, Accur8vision delivers situational awareness of an intruder's exact location, size, speed and movement trajectory - all of which can be visualised within a 3D digital reality of the area under surveillance.
"Hexagon has long been a leader in sensor and 3D visualisation technology. Our award-winning 3D surveillance solution, Leica BLK247, fuses LiDAR, video, and thermal imaging with edge computing and intelligent algorithms to instantly detect and report physical changes within an environment," says Hexagon President and CEO Ola Rollén. "Together with the BLK247 and HxGN OnCall, our comprehensive portfolio of next-generation public safety solutions, Hexagon can now offer those working to make our world a safer place a fully integrated end-to-end security surveillance solution for 24-hour, full visibility of critical infrastructure and spaces to...

Cambridge, UK, 14th July 2020, ( www.1spatial.com) 1Spatial, a global leader in Location Master Data Management (LMDM) software and solutions and Ordnance Survey Northern Ireland (OSNI) have been working together with 1Spatial’s automation, editing and integration tools to create a new data model, which provides the opportunity for Land and Property Services (LPS) to link databases and automate processes across government.
LPS has a wealth of data relating to land and property. However, with the information held in separate legacy systems preventing it from being shared both within the organisation and across government, it needed a new building block for interoperability.
Developed by OSNI, the Fusion object-based model has created millions of features to represent Northern Ireland’s land use and built environment, each with a unique spatial identifier.
1Spatial Management Suite provides the spatial data infrastructure to manage the object lifecycle and a quality framework which ensures data is subject to validation checks before integration and acceptance into the live system.
Jim Lennon, Chief Survey Officer & Director of Ordnance Survey Northern Ireland said:
“Embedding the unique identifier as a requirement in new systems is an opportunity for the Northern Ireland Civil Service to leapfrog the rest of the world in their application, making us global leaders in supporting joined up government.”
Dan Warner, Head of Government, 1Spatial commented:
“This project provided a fantastic opportunity to work in collaboration with OSNI as...
