OVERWATCH ASSISTED SECURITY AT TURIN OLYMPICS

19 May 06. Overwatch Systems Provided Intelligent 3D Maps of the Olympic Venues deployed to NGA Support Teams. Overwatch Systems announced that NGA Support Teams deployed during the Winter Olympics in Turin used the InterSCOPE 3D visualization environment and photorealistic models of the Olympic venues produced at the corporate offices in McLean VA. Using a variety of different data types, Overwatch analysts built high fidelity models of each of the venues and other sites of interest. These models provided the basis for 3D analysis in the unique urban view provided by InterSCOPE. NGA analysts delivered dynamic line of sight (LOS) and viewshed analysis throughout the Olympic events.

Prior to the Olympics, Overwatch personnel worked closely with the national Geospatial – Intelligence Agency (NGA) to review and evaluate the large volume of data that was available. Producing “Intelligent 3D Maps” of the area, Overwatch provided an intuitive easy to use view of the Alpine areas as well as the urban landscape of the city of Turin. Analyst training was accomplished in less than half a day.

NGA continues to pave the way for delivery of Geospatial Intelligence (GEOINT) support with new tools and services. Overwatch is continuing to work with NGA to meet the requirements for additional analysis and visualization capabilities.
