2 KSI Background Founded in 2011 by the founders of EchoStorm – we have been in stealth mode for the last eighteen months… Our product is radically different – We are focused on a more broad set of sensors and video sources than EchoStorm did (e.g., smartphones, unmanned aircraft, boats, underwater vehicles) – Targeting a much more diverse group of customers Our solutions are not just for the DoD – Designed for secure sharing – think social

3 We believe… Unmanned aircraft are functionally similar to other remote sensing platforms, however, there are laws dictating how a UAS can collect, share and retain data UAS platforms are purchased for the data they produce Its all about the data Too much data is the same as not having enough

4 Public Perception and Fear The general public has a fear of UAS tech, and bigger fear over how the data that is produced will be stored and used The media plays on this fear, promotes the tech “spookiness” and tends to attack the technology as a big step towards an “Orwellian” police state – readersupportednews.org: The Coming Drone Attack on America “Drones on domestic surveillance duties are already deployed by police and corporations. In time, they will likely be weaponized.” – The NY Times - America’s Use of Drones: The Legality Issue Over the last four years the use of drones has become ever more permissive. Lethal strikes are no longer restricted to “high-value targets,” Guilt, not innocence, is the apparent presumption. – US News - Police to Use Drones for Spying on Citizens "With some exceptions, drone flights in the U.S. have been all about developing and testing surveillance technology.” – The Washington Post - Time for Congress to build a better drone policy “An unmanned U.S. aerial vehicle — or drone — reportedly killed eight people in rural Pakistan last week, bringing the estimated death toll from drone strikes in Pakistan this year to 35.”

5 Irony Other platforms collect very similar data – the only difference is the pilot is remotely operating the platform There are different rules for different platforms that collect the same information Currently, there are no rules for purely commercial drone use – What happens when the media gets their own drones? – What will the privacy impact be?

6 Challenge: Data Collection and Retention There are guidelines: the International Association of Chiefs of Police Aviation Committee Recommended Guidelines for UAS: Warrants are necessary for the use of drones where subjects have a reasonable expectation of privacy Images should not be retained unless relevant to a crime The public should be given meaningful notice of drone use Police drone use should be subject to tracking and audits, with accountability for misuse Weapons should not be placed on domestic drones And there are Laws: Chain-of-Custody dictates how data can be shared among Federal, State and Local agencies Storage and Security

7 If we blow it! The International Association of Chiefs of Police sum it up nicely: “We live in a culture that is extremely sensitive to the idea of preventing unnecessary government intrusion into any facet of our lives. Personal rights are cherished and legally protected by the Constitution. Despite their proven effectiveness, concerns about privacy threaten to overshadow the benefits this technology promises to bring to public safety. From enhanced officer safety by exposing unseen dangers, to finding those most vulnerable who may have wandered away from their caregivers, the potential benefits are irrefutable. However, privacy concerns are an issue that must be dealt with effectively if a law enforcement agency expects the public to support the use of UA by their police.”

8 Therefore Our Focus is on the Data Platform Integration Data Presentation and fusion – Geospatial Context – Devices – Two way situational awareness Security of Data (at rest and during transport) Rules governing acquisition, access, retention, dissemination in a highly dynamic environment This is a “Big Data” problem as much as it is a video management problem – Fusing – Sharing – Searching – Reporting Too much information is the same as not having enough…
