URS, an AECOM company, has formed an alliance with Pixel Velocity Incorporated (PVI) to deliver state-of-the-art capabilities for strategic oil and gas infrastructure protection and security.
22-Dec-2014 – The URS-PVI team offers a fully integrated enterprise level security and asset protection solution to contain and defeat the most sophisticated physical, cyberspace, and electromagnetic spectrum (EMS)-based threats. This solution is based upon URS’ proven Enterprise Risk Analysis Program (eRAP) framework, applying decades of military-grade multidisciplinary security expertise to assess and protect fixed, mobile, and remote critical infrastructure nodes, from industrial control systems/supervisory control and data acquisition (ICS/SCADA) control centers to their farthest reaches downstream.
Pixel Velocity’s information intelligence solution (IIS) introduces advanced video sensing and analytics to provide critical risk-mitigation and cost avoidance through dynamic attribution, prediction, and prevention of infrastructure threat events. IIS includes an industry leading combination of geo-spatial intrusion detection, full motion video, and 3D model based video analytics. Pixel Velocity’s technology within the eRAP framework will associate process control data with visual imagery, aggregating this meta-data across all end user systems and sensors to provide “eyes-on” for both security and operational incidents.
URS-PVI’s unique product capability will enable end users to make critical (real-time) operational decisions based upon a prioritized list of risks across their enterprise. The integrated solution encompasses information assurance and information system security engineering to protect proprietary data at rest, in motion, and in use, and ensures regulatory compliance. Pixel Velocity’s complex IIS analytics will simplify the situation to provide a predictive capability that identifies potential risks and trends before they mature, dramatically reducing the enterprise risk profile and life-cycle costs across physical, cyber, and EMS domains.
URS uses an innovative “security as a service” model to provide these services and the Pixel Velocity IIS in a comprehensive solution that includes program management, risk assessment and prioritization, design, installation, training, commissioning, maintenance and sustainment of all technologies and services.
