New System Demonstrates Capabilities That Could Transform the Infrastructure Industry
Starkville, Miss. – Today Camgian Microsystems announced the successful demonstration of an advanced information technology that supports radical improvements in the operation, maintenance and reliability of aging public infrastructure. The new Intelligent Decision Support (IDS) System, which was built through a contract with the US Army Corps of Engineers, is a novel enterprise solution designed to improve safety and reduce unplanned downtime of infrastructure assets such as locks, dams, bridges and levees. Key to the system’s design is its capacity to intelligently process large-scale sensor data from industrial assets in real-time.
“IDS efficiently bridges the gap between traditional industrial field instrumentation and advanced modeling, simulation and analytics”, says Chris Henderson, Camgian Vice President of Engineering, “This development builds a foundation for transforming the way infrastructure assets will be designed, constructed and managed in the future.”
IDS is built on Camgian’s award winning Egburt™ Industrial Internet of Things (IIoT) platform, which leverages a flexible, distributed computing architecture for generating critical operational insights from high volume, multi-modal sensor data. Camgian’s latest version, Egburt 2.0, comprises an intelligent edge server that supports wireless connectivity with industrial machines, data loggers and sensors and the ingestion and real-time local processing of multi-sensor data streams. A secure, LTE cellular connection provides remote edge server management through Egburt’s cloud based Insight™ software, which includes flexible user configuration, analytics development and information presentation tools.
Egburt’s novel distributed computing architecture has been recognized for its ability to address critical scalability issues with big data applications in ways that push the limits of conventional IoT platforms. “The combination of cloud and edge computing will enable more flexible and robust architectures. Egburt is a prime example of how this evolution is happening in practice,” says ABI Research in their 2015 Hot Tech Innovators Report.
Camgian is a recognized leader in developing advanced sensing and information processing technologies that deliver real-time, actionable intelligence. Leveraging innovations in the areas of multi-sensor signal processing, data analytics and information fusion, Camgian is pioneering a new generation of decision support capabilities that address key needs in the military, government and industrial markets.
Camgian has been named by Inc. Magazine as one of the fastest growing private companies in the US, Entrepreneur Magazine as one of the most entrepreneurial companies in America, The Silicon Review as one of the top 50 fastest growing technology companies, CIO Review as one of the top 50 most promising companies in IoT and Compass Intelligence as one of the world’s top companies in IoT innovation and execution. Moreover, ABI Research featured Camgian in their 2015 Hot Tech Innovators report, which identified the company as one of the world’s top tech start-ups.
