TacID Guard Dog is a watch and alert solution capable of monitoring and tracking multiple persons from one or more cameras (Webcam, IP or CCTV), while instantly performing facial recognition against very large databases. Guard dog was designed to address access control and watch list operating modes independently or in tandem. The access control mode indicates authorized users by visibly displaying and optionally triggering actions (e.g. audible sound alert). The watch list mode can search multiple databases. When operating in dual mode, subjects are first checked against watch lists then identified for access. Guard Dog supports configurable alerts and triggers upon facial recognition matches. The alert platform sends instant messages via SMS, email and/or displays visual and audible alerts. The action platform can trigger any Internet of Things (IOT) compliant device such as a door relay, or flood light, etc.

TacID Vehicle Entry Control (VEC) will provide security guards the ability to quickly and accurately identify occupants inside a moving vehicle as they approach an entry control point. Our high-resolution machine vision camera is optimized for both day and night operation; the camera is paired with a powerful targeted array of LED lights that illuminate the driver and other occupants even through tinted glass, sun glare and at night. Once illuminated, our state-of-the-art facial recognition algorithm extracts and matches the faces to a database of images on the security guard’s tablet computer. Based on the information displayed, the guard can determine a match or whether an individual is on a watch or barment list.

By combining a high-resolution camera that’s optimized for day and night operation with powerful LED arrays that light up the inside of the vehicle, even through highly-tinted windows, ballistic glass, and heavy glare.

TacID VEC utilizes proprietary algorithms to extract faces in the vehicle and quickly return a high-quality cropped facial image for each of the vehicle’s occupants, a total count on the number of vehicle occupants, and clear labeling of the driver vs. passengers.

The TacID VEC software is able to identify all vehicle occupants (in both front and rear seats) and perform advanced facial matching. This integrated facial recognition capability enables the rapid identification of allowed employees or visitors to an installation or facility. Individuals placed on a watchlist or barment roster are immediately identified and an alert is sent to the security officer. Secure Planet continues to drive innovative technology advancements and is the industry leader for facial recognition solutions.

The 200m Face Recognition System can collect and match unconstrained faces from individuals at ranges
up to 200 meters in daylight conditions. Images that are seamlessly extracted from the streaming video will be automatically matched against a database of millions of individuals, with or without a network connection to remote computing resources. The system is built around a commercial off-the-shelf lens, a connected laptop computer and the highest-rated U.S.-made facial recognition algorithm, which was designed for unconstrained, low resolution imagery. The operator points an internally-stabilized lens toward the person or people intended to be matched. The system will then automatically extract and match all faces that appear in the streaming video and visually alert the user when persons match to an enrolled individual in the database or to an on-board watchlist.

  • Fully automated facial recognition system that runs on Windows
  • Integrated laptop or tablet display allows the operator to orient the camera towards the person(s) to be surveilled
  • Autofocus, auto exposure and vibration reduction ensures optimal face image quality
  • Continuous identification even with off-pose images, hats, facial hair, eyeglasses and sunglasses
  • Provides the operator the ability to enroll individuals on-the-fly
  • Match results and meta data displayed on the laptop or tablet
  • The capability has application to military, border security and law enforcement missions
  • Secure Planet has deployed several hundred biometric matching systems that are used in communications- disadvantaged environments

Mid-Range Facial Recognition (Still)
Similar to Secure Planet’s mid-range video capability, our mid-range still-image facial recognition solution can collect still-images of unconstrained faces of persons at ranges between 5 and 350 meters in daylight conditions. The system is built around an internally-stabilized Commercial-Off-The-Shelf telephoto lens and Digital Single Lens Reflex camera, and a smart phone that provides the Graphical User’s Interface, display, and computing power. The integrated facial recognition algorithm used in our solution is the highest rated U.S. made facial recognition algorithm and was specifically designed for high performance on unconstrained, low resolution imagery. Following capture, the pictures are automatically transferred to the smart phone for face extraction and matching against a database of known trusted persons or a watchlist of known threat individuals. The common design of the system enables Dismounted and Force Protection configurations; the only configuration adjustment required is to the optics.

Users request access via an app on their phone after taking a selfie, entering a PIN, and selecting a location. The phone adds its own unique identifier and sends an access request to a server, which verifies the user by facial recognition, PIN, and phone identifier (3-factor authentication). If the user is authorized access, the server returns a confirmation secret displayed on the phone as a QR code (in 3 seconds or less). At the gate, confirmed users are recognized via RFID code or a message sent by the users’s phone and directed into a “fast lane” by signal lights. All vehicles in the fast lane are confirmed, and violators are stopped by a red light and/or boom gate while guards are audibly alerted.
