TerraEchos, a global supplier of surveillance and intelligence sensing solutions, has received the North American New Product Innovation of the Year Award for 2010 from Frost & Sullivan, for the category of Fiber Optic Sensors in Border Security. TerraEchos accepted this award for its Adelos S4 fiber-optic sensing system, blended with innovativeness, leading-edge technology and value to its user.
According to Dr. Alex Philp, TerraEchos’ President and CEO, this honor showcases the significance of Adelos S4 product to safeguard and inspect major infrastructure and security in the borders.
The Adelos S4 from TerraEchos is the initial fiber-optic product of its kind to integrate the IBM InfoSphere Streams technology. The solution features a fiber-optic sensing sequence integrated in underwater or buried in the ground to collect live acoustic data which are then evaluated. The sound ranges from the data are compared against complicated algorithms to track the source of the noise. With the advent of the IBM InfoSphere Streams technology the system is able to immediately detect, discriminate and categorize varied objects tracked by the fiber-optic sensing sequences.
The operation of the Adelos S4 is oriented on an improved fiber-optic acoustic sensing system authorized by the U.S. Navy and is configured to satisfy the progressive reliable requirements from the energy, government, transportation and public safety industries. The IBM InfoSphere Streams is a standard computing system that permits speedy evaluation of live data originating from numerous sources, thereby enhancing the speed and precision in decision making.
The award will be given officially at the Frost & Sullivan Excellence in Best Practices Award Banquet, scheduled on 16th November, 2010, in San Antonio, Texas.
