With large modernization requirements facing the US Coast Guard (USCG) and an austere political environment taking its toll, finding the necessary cost savings to fit the Coast Guard’s new budget and uphold operational efficiencies is paramount.
Achieving efficiencies while not reducing capabilities can be like a tightrope walk across the Grand Canyon. But the Coast Guard appears to be walking theline with some important efforts that are effective in enhancing maritime domain awareness while not breaching the budgetary dam.
One tool the Coast Guard has enlisted for achieving this balance is a technology developed by Hiperwall Inc., a University of California at Irvine spinoff established to commercialize a high-performance, low-cost video wall software solution.
Hiperwall affords public sector customers the ability to display large amounts of information at a single glance, resulting in more informed decision-making and improved image analysis. The firm provides a unique software-based video wall system that is hardware agnostic.
