Alexandria, VA (PRWEB) September 12, 2011
Today, ObjectFX announced that its award-winning Complex Event Processing engine, SpatialRULES®, is now available for download on a free trial basis.
In 2010, ObjectFX won the prestigious Industry Achievement Award from the U.S. Geospatial Intelligence Foundation for the development of SpatialRules, a Complex Event Processing engine for geospatial data that is currently deployed within military, intelligence and commercial environments. SpatialRules is designed for continuously analyzing large volumes of spatial and temporal data and for transforming this data into useful information.
Starting today, development professionals can register at http://download.ObjectFX.com to download a full version of SpatialRules for a free 60-day trial.
This unique service-oriented middleware component allows users to create real-time rules for monitoring and processing spatial and temporal conditions 24 hours a day. Rules are constructed to define patterns, events and conditions of interest, and then applied to data to provide tipping, cueing, and alerting when rule conditions are detected. Significant events detected by the SpatialRules engine can be passed along to human analysts and decision-makers as alerts, or sent to other systems for visualization, automated response and other downstream processing.
For example, SpatialRules has been used in the commercial transportation and military defense markets to monitor vehicles to detect when they enter or exit an area of interest, veer off-route, or move within proximity to a landmark or other moving objects. SpatialRules has also been used to indicate when certain types of objects gather near each other (cluster analysis), or when populations in an area exceed or fall below defined thresholds (zone monitoring), in order to reduce potential threat risks.
Geofencing and proximity to areas of interest can be monitored in two or three dimensions to establish threat zones, monitor airspace, or detect transitions across checkpoints on the ground, at altitude, or below sea-level. Areas and corridors can be monitored for undesirable activity or to warn when severe weather approaches work zones, crews or convoys.
“The applications for SpatialRules as it pertains to spatial and temporal data monitoring, analysis and alerting are seemingly endless,” stated David Hemphill, ObjectFX’s chief technology officer for geospatial solutions. “We are consistently receiving new use cases and potential scenarios from our clients and partners, and we look forward to building upon our application and product functionality as more developers begin to implement this technology into their existing visualization applications, such as Google Earth, or ObjectFX’s own web mapping service, SpatialFX®.”
SpatialRules is such a flexible and high performance solution, that it has been used across a variety of markets, including intelligence, military, homeland security and commercial transportation and logistics environments. ObjectFX clients and partners utilize SpatialRules for surveillance and threat detection (SIGINT, GEOINT, HUMINT), situational awareness, force protection, port and border security, maritime domain awareness, and emergency and disaster response. On the commercial side, SpatialRules has helped reduce both personnel and monetary risks through supply chain management, field force management and business intelligence and analysis.
