Anteo’s  Situation Awareness and Management System (SAMS) is an open architecture software platform that allows organizations to integrate disparate systems, technologies, edge devices and human inputs into a unified, holistic and customized common operating picture (COP), complemented by dynamic and flexible response planning and the execution of Standard Operating Procedures (SOPs).

Anteo’s SAMS is a flexible and modular distributed system that supports multiple server/database implementations at different hierarchical levels.

The primary benefits of Anteo’s SAMS platform include:

  • A hierarchical system architecture that allows customization of multiple Command & Control (C&C) layers with various attributes, such as monitoring and control functionality, authorizations, etc.
  • A robust software design that is not overly sensitive to network failure.  All C&C centers have their own independent servers and can continue working in case of network connectivity failures, which, once restored and reconnected will synchronize data as needed.
  • Advanced incident escalation logic that allows the system to be customized to manage various escalated incidents and between different layers according to a well-defined concept of operations (CONOPs). Smart and flexible workflow engine that allow for the planning and configuration of complex, yet easy to define logical rules for triggers and actions. This engine enables the system to reduce false alarms, optimize operations and deliver smart and effective events management.
  • Fully customized integration with external systems, application layers and logical rules, supported by a Software Development Kit (SDK) component that allows flexible adaptation to customer needs.
  • The platform has an integration hub layer designed for sharing and exchanging information between overlaying applications (such as mobile and desktop clients).  The integration hub adds and integrates applications on top of the platform, enabling the platform to be easily adjusted to meet customer requirements.
  • An open system architecture that greatly simplifies the integration of new systems by providing a simple interface for communicating with external systems containing any kind of hardware/software protocol.  
  • Support of and seamless integration of geo-referenced data as well as blueprint images (which are not geo-referenced) in the same platform. This allows for an easy navigation between wide area maps of building floor plans and other corresponding images.
  • Flexible Graphic User Interface (GUI) that allows an easy and powerful customization of the user workspaces and screen displays to satisfy customer convenience and CONOPs plans.
  • A near real-time analytics application layer that assists in better decision-making capabilities for preventing and mitigating emergencies by easily retrieving relevant real-time data while managing events.  The data is provided in response to on-demand or automatically pre-planned queries derived from CONOPs configurations.
  • Support of multi-agency selective and dynamic information sharing via structured and non-structured collaboration facilities.
  • An innovative Smartphone Application Suite that provides an interactive channel between city residents, visitors and others and the city C&C center, thus dramatically enhancing awareness and facilitating faster and more effective response. The application suite includes the following components:
    • Crowd sourcing application
    • Functional workers application
    • Management application.
  • Built-in redundancy that provides stability and robustness to deal with hardware, software and network failures at any local server level.
  • Superior scalability and load handling derived from in-memory object management.  The Anteo engine is designed to manage tens of thousands of objects, each changing several times per second.  It is highly optimized for efficient handling of memory, CPU, thread-pools, etc.
  • Inherent support of recording and playback – the platform provides a built-in capability for recording and playing back objects and invocations. This capability is very instrumental for training and debriefing modes.
  • Optimized scheduling services designed to efficiently support a large number of scheduling requests and objects.
  • Transparent object distribution between servers and clients. Once an object is created on a specific network node (server or client) it can be accessed from any other node (both for reading as well as for writing) as if it were a local object.
  • Automatic object persistence to a database - this capability includes the automatic generation of database schemas and DAL.
  • Distributed asynchronous events extend the native .NET event (subscribing to a remote event and triggering remote objects), thus leveraging the built-in thread safety mechanisms.

Anteo’s approach incorporates proactive measures for mitigating the threat, including:

  • A ‘rule-based engine’ operating according to pre-defined CONOPs.
  • Advanced inter-sensor analytics ‘connect the dots’ between systems with increased reliability and fewer false alarms.

Anteo SAMS platform architecture reflects and facilitates the company’s strategy to build modular, flexible, and functional layers that are suitable for several market verticals, support a range of operational scales while simultaneously integrating and improving security, safety and emergency management of operations.
