What's in the White Paper?
“Automatic Threat Assessment,” also referred to as Identify Friend or Foe (IFF), is the ability to automatically acknowledge alarms created by friendly assets. This white paper outlines how the addition of a tracking system associated with ‘friendly’ vehicles and personnel can provide the missing information necessary to tighten security, reduce the need to take action on alarms caused by friendly targets, all the while reducing the cost of threat assessment in terms of both material and personnel cost. Whether you are a security professional trying to secure the physical assets of your company, a consultant helping that owner or an integrator installing the system, it is import to understand how tracking systems and intrusion sensors can work together to automatically classify an ‘Actual Intruder’ with high confidence and without operator intervention.
