1. Wide-area Surveillance and Security Solutions
Hitachi uses the system security concept, which focuses on measures that are adaptive, responsive, and cooperative, to deal with security requirements for protecting social infrastructure, such as urban areas, public transport, and major critical infrastructure, from threats such as natural disasters, cyber-attacks, and terrorism, and supplies wide-area surveillance and security solutions that provide appropriate ongoing measures compliant with the International Organization for Standardization (ISO) 22320 standard for emergency management.
Specifically, these solutions perform multifaceted monitoring of social infrastructure using satellites, unmanned aerial vehicles, and sensors for radio wave monitoring, network monitoring to assess the ever-changing situation for both physical and cyber threats, and uses real-time processing to automatically detect signs of anomalies. This process includes analyzing and predicting information using geographic information systems (GIS), image analysis, and simulation techniques, and providing accurate decision-making support that includes providing knowledge based on the observe, orient, decide, and act (OODA) process. Furthermore, location positioning, information sharing, and other solutions are used to support rapid responses. Drills and exercises simulating actual crises are also conducted to provide support for minimizing potential damage. The system can be installed quickly thanks to a flexible choice of system configurations based on the operation and existing equipment.
