High-end Surveillance and Security – How Technology is Helping Protect Us
Dennis Treece
Dennis TreeceColonel, US Army (Retired)
Former CSO and Director, Department of Corporate Security and Emergency Preparedness, Massachusetts Port Authority (Massport)

Security and high-end surveillance technologies, although completely different, are used together to help keep us safe. Typical security cameras and even cell phone images can be mined using software to help law enforcement solve crimes. High-end surveillance technologies provide more information at higher resolutions and therefore are the choice for border patrol, port security, airport monitoring, asset protection, law enforcement and other surveillance operations across the globe. This presentation will touch on the technologies used to capture the Boston Marathon bombers and will specifically discuss cutting-edge high -end surveillance technologies where they are used and where future opportunities may be.
