Leonardo S p A: Cyber Security Leonardo wins a contract to secure the ‘Terra dei Fuochi’ area
A new project, led by Leonardo at the head of an industrial consortium, aims to strengthen monitoring and surveillance capabilities by applying artificial intelligence and the most advanced deep and machine learning techniques. The project stems from an initiative entitled: “Interventions to support safety and the environment in the “Terra dei Fuochi” area: video surveillance and environmental monitoring infrastructure for ASI (industrial development areas) of Caserta”, developed and financed by the Italian Ministry of the Interior, within the Pon Legalità (Fesr/Fse 2014-2020). The solution proposed by Leonardo was presented at an event organized by the ASI Industrial Consortium (Area di Sviluppo Industriale) in Caserta.
The ASI area of Caserta
Areas around industrial centers directly managed by the ASI Industrial Consortium (Area di Sviluppo Industriale) in Caserta, require different interventions, all focused on the main objective of increasing safety. The consortium areas, covering an area of more than four thousand hectares, are divided into fourteen agglomerations and include large companies in the luxury, electronics, automotive, food and logistics sectors.
In this context, the project provides for the development of an integrated monitoring and control system, for the overall security of the industrial areas managed by the Consortium: Caserta, Pontelice, Aversa North, Marcianise-San Marco Evangelista.
This solution uses intelligent video analysis systems based on Ganimedethe Leonardo product that applies AI and deep learning to video surveillance, using algorithms and dedicated functions to meet multiple security needs.
Ganimede can be applied to all video cameras used to protect the four sites of the ASI consortium, which include both industrial sites and non-urban areas not protected by fences or barriers.
Ganimede: intelligent support for security
The Ganimede platform will use AI to analyze both live and previously recorded video, looking for unauthorized individuals or behavior, showing breaches around the Consortium perimeter.
Operators can analyze streaming video using machine vision algorithms, which are based on neural networks and can automatically analyze single frames, frames, or sets of frames.
This analysis will detect objects within an area, classify them using known databases or an “open world” approach. It will also count the number of objects in a frame or in a series of frames, estimating the density of people inside a given area.
Algorithms can also check how objects or people are moving (direction) inside the area, to highlight suspicious behavior or intrusions.
Intelligent lighting systems
The contract also includes the upgrade of the sites’ lighting systems, with a solution capable of monitoring consumption, managing the “switch on” and energy levels, providing services to improve security, illuminating areas where motion is detected
With this new contract, Leonardo confirms its ability and experience in the integration of complex solutions, leader in technological innovation through the design and development of advanced applications for control rooms, in order to guarantee the safety of people. , land and environment.
