Past Performances

DHS Headquarters

The Department of Homeland Security (DHS) required an intelligent video surveillance, detection and monitoring system for the headquarters complex and for geographically dispersed sites. The system covers the perimeter, grounds and building interiors.

Titan Systems’ videoNEXT product solution integrated numerous security elements into its PSIM (Physical Security Information Management) system.

These elements include:

  • Access Control
  • Cameras
  • Video Storage
  • Intrusion Detection and
  • Fire Panels.

The headquarters contains over 380 cameras and 100 cameras with analytics. The 16 Servers access 360 TBs of storage. The Situational Awareness display system uses over 50 Wall Monitors. Titan/videoNEXT uses only COTS equipment in its video walls. We configure each monitor view with multiple cameras. The User switches views when desired. Alert and alarm events bring-up the relevant camera views to assigned Critical Monitors.

Geo-Referencing Aids in Situational Awareness

To aid in Situational Awareness, the system  includes Geo-referencing ability. The system places detected objects on a satellite image of the campus. For internal security purposes, the system can incorporate building layouts. Alarms from any of the data sensors can be pinpointed on the maps.
DHS Headquarters connects to over 13 DHS sites with plans to connect to 20 geographically dispersed sites. The typical remote site has a monitor, server and
approximately 50 cameras. Each remote site integrates various security elements such as access control and other security sensors and devices.

DHS Headquarter personnel can configure and operate the remote site(s) Security System from Headquarters. This feature limits the number of highly trained personnel that are needed to operate the Security Systems. Remote sites also employ Titan/videoNEXT’s Avatar package. This software monitors the communication link and prioritizes the transmission of the most vital information according to the ConOps (Concept of Operations). This feature is most useful
when physical or economic conditions constrain communications.

DHS Plum Island

Plum Island Animal Disease Center (PIADC) FSS/VSS, located on Plum Island, New York, an 840- acre island approximately 1.5 miles east of the eastern end of Long Island's North Fork.

PIADC is a unique research facility dedicated to the advancement of knowledge related to and technology for the control and eradication of foreign animal diseases, development of vaccines, diagnostic testing, and applied research projects. Facilities include biosafety research facilities, operational support facilities, utilities and other physical plant to support the secure U.S. Government facility.

In April, 2017 Titan installed it’s videoNEXT Stratus Perimeter Security System for PIADC’s Waste Water Thermal-Decontamination Plant Construction, US DHS BioContainment Procurement Branch, National Bio and Agro Defense Facility (NBAF) Construction Office.

In October, 2018, Titan installed it’s videoNEXT Stratus Perimeter Security System for the rest of the PIADC facility, for PIADC’s FSS/VSS project.

The scope of work was to design, supply, install, configure, maintain & troubleshoot an integrated system of software, hardware including inside and outside plant enclosures, mounting poles, conduit, trenching, coaxial copper and fiber optic cabling, equipment racks, AC and DC power, network & communications equipment, intrusion detection sensors, 220 cameras, 8 Video Walls, 5 computer servers, 160 TB Netapp storage, 50 Cameras running analytics and workstations. We also did a full integration to the existing Lenel System.

FAA - Tampa, NSG Tampa International Airport (TPA): 2 

The TPA tower site is located on-airport at Tampa, FL. The scope for the tower project was to assess the tower and site conditions and provide information/measurements of the tower and related appurtenances in preparation for construction work on site or decommissioning the tower itself. The information recorded regards tower safety, structural member sizes, tower height, and section weights.

Tower measurements, including steel member thickness, were recorded for each member and appurtenance of the tower.  These measurements were conveyed by an electronic report that also included detailed photographs and video of the tower and surrounding area.

A detailed report of this type is required prior to construction on or decommissioning of a tower and may consist of over 100 detailed weights and dimensions of tower members as well as 10’s to hundreds of photographs with embedded text descriptions, GPS coordinates, compass direction, and altitude in each photograph to aid with the position and context of each photo.

FAA - NSG Reno-Tahoe International Airport

Work consisted of dismantling & disposing of a tower, antennas, appurtenances, and concrete foundations on airport ground at Reno-Tahoe International Airport (RNO).

Prior to any on-site activities, we made the necessary arrangements for licenses, filings, permits, clearances, and payments.  We also prepared all of the necessary drawings, plans, and calculations required for the work.

This project deconstructed an existing 60’ tall monopol tower and associated appurtenances.  All work was performed in accordance with an approved demolition plan and a project specific / contractor approved risk mitigation plan.

Once the tower was on the ground it was disassembled, disposed of and proper recycling receipts provided.  The site was cleaned and left in as found condition.  The site was walked with both contractor and customer prior to end of project to ensure satisfactory completion.

Submitted a project close out document at the end of the project.  This document consisted of before and after photos of each work element, all permits and receipts collected, daily crew reports, inspection reports, safety procedures, and quality checklists.

FAA - WRBB NASET Tower Demolition at Warner-Robins AFB, GA

The WRBB NASET tower site is located on-airport at Warner Robins Air Force Base, leased by the FAA and was scheduled for restoration and return to original private or public landowners. The Titan scope of work was part of an overall decommissioning program, coordinated with follow on site demolition and restoration activities. The work consisted of dismantling and disposing of a tower, antennas, appurtenances, and miscellaneous concrete foundations on the Robins AFB. Prior to any on-site activities, we made the necessary arrangements for licenses, filings, permits, and payments.  We also prepared all the necessary drawings, plans, and calculations required for the work. Titan performed minor grading and filling of holes/washouts in the access road to provide access for machinery and equipment.

Titan deconstructed an existing 125’ tall self-support tower, cross members, and associated appurtenances.  Titan removed and disposed of all existing antennas, ice bridge, guy wires, cable tray and other miscellaneous items attached to the tower.  All work was performed in accordance with an approved demolition plan and a project specific / contractor approved risk mitigation plan.

Titan removed and disposed of concrete tower foundations, all waveguide bridge and concrete footings. Foundations and footings were removed to 1.5 ft. below grade level, backfilled with suitable backfill material, compacted, and erosion control installed. Titan disposed of all project waste material legally and provided documentation of proper disposal.

Titan submitted a project close out document at the end of the project.  This document consisted of before and after photos of each work element, all permits and receipts collected, daily crew reports, inspection reports, safety procedures, and quality checklists.
