CohuHD Costar: Rugged HD Camera Systems for Powerful Surveillance

Top 10 Homeland Security Companies - 2019

In this age of sophisticated hacking and cyber espionage, homeland security has to be more practical and proactive. The blurring of lines between physical and digital world means that the threat actors can easily hide behind fraudulent identities, lurking in the critical infrastructure to create maximum damage. In such a scenario, the government agencies need to invest in the converged security initiatives, encompassing both physical and digital, to stay at the forefront of technological innovation.

Among the many challenges that plague the security ecosystem, siloed information systems top the list. As disparate systems function on diverse technology platforms and complexity levels, the lack of the exchange of data in real time impacts the decision making capability of the government agencies. A solution that is built on collaboration can utilize integrated systems to achieve situational awareness and proactive threat mitigation. Moreover, the government agencies aim for solutions that lead to low cost overhead and maximum benefits. Ideally, they want solutions with superior technological capabilities that will allow the agencies to operate with high precision in a timely manner to avert the disasters from occurring. At a time when the critical infrastructures are under constant attack, the need of the hour is to have solutions that share data with diverse systems for maximum threat intelligence gathering and sharing.

Emerging technologies like IoT, data analytics, sensors, and cameras with HD long-range surveillance capabilities are aiding homeland security authorities in performing tasks with greater accuracy, leading to better outcomes for all parties involved. While IoT allows the agencies to aggregate data from different devices into a unified system, data analytics and real-time collaboration technologies assist in gaining actionable insights for a higher common goal. An interoperable platform goes a long way in enabling security professionals and law enforcement agencies to correlate data efficiently and communicate effectively. Through data correlation and visualization, the agencies can gain visibility into the meaningful information out of the noise. 

In the wake of the rampant technology innovations, homeland security solution providers are making it a point to adopt these developments to improve their product efficiency. We are glad to feature CohuHD Costar which offers designs and manufactures rugged and compliant HD CCTV video surveillance camera systems for critical infrastructure and transportation. CohuHD Costar manufactures all its products in the US, ensuring control over the manufacturing process in an end-to-end manner. Another featured company, GrammaTech, an advanced cyber-security solution developer offers a robust code analysis platform, CodeSonar.  Furthermore, Communications International (Ci)—a wireless systems integrator—facilitates the much needed interoperable communication between different agencies to communicate and coordinate while following the P25 standards for public safety.

With several innovative technological capabilities and success stories up their sleeves, these organizations are continually proving their mettle in the field of homeland security. We hope this issue of the Govt CIO Outlook helps you build the partnership your firm needs to foster a technologically-driven homeland security environment.

We present to you Govt CIO Outlook’s “Top 10 Homeland Security Solution Providers 2019.”
