SPOT™ – Sensor Placement & Optimization Tool
SPOT™ uses three-dimensional imaging technology to determine the optimal placement for sensors such as radar, sonar, unattended ground sensors and perimeter intrusion detectors. The software can optimize the placement of sensors from any manufacturer.
Persistent Sentinel’s SPOT enables security operators to quickly assess the effectiveness of existing or proposed sensor systems. Using a combination of elevation data and customizable 3D models, SPOT calculates sensor coverage areas and presents color-coded results on a geographic information system (GIS) display. This enables site planners to virtually place sensors, assess a variety of sensor combinations, and create a design that eliminates blind spots.
SPOT is customizable and compact enough to run on a laptop. It can be used to create simple 3D models representing buildings, vegetation, and other obstructions. Once the obstructions have been created, a site planner can use the software to determine the overall effectiveness of the sensor network.
