Innovation Spotlight ~ Smarter Security Provided Through Indoor Maps and Sensor Feeds
In 2017, GeoComm worked with U.S. Bank Stadium and the Minneapolis Police Department to deploy and innovative new software to be used in the ESPN XGames that provided real-time information and sensor feeds into a Common Operating Picture (COP) built around 3D and indoor maps. The system was again used in 2017 during the Twin Cities Medtronic Marathon. In addition, the system was used for all pre-, regular-, and post-season NFL games in U.S. Bank Stadium, where it was utilized in the Stadium Operations Center (SOC) and Joint Operations Center (JOC) helping streamline incident response coordination within the Minneapolis Police Department’s Multi Agency Command Center (MACC) by connecting people and devices into a system for real-time analysis, visualization, and communication.
Then in January 2018 an estimated one million people visited Minnesota for Super Bowl LII and the ten days of festivities leading up to it. The Minneapolis Police Department led the way in organizing the massive security effort, and in total over 80 different public safety agencies and hundreds of law enforcement officers from various jurisdictions participated. To assist their security efforts, the Minneapolis Police Department utilized GeoComm’s innovative system to achieve a new level of situational awareness, making emergency response more targeted and efficient.
This case study video highlights how they utilized the software to improve their situational awareness during emergency response.
