Functional Requirements

IDRequirement
1The center shall remotely monitor and control security sensor data collected in secure areas including facilities (e.g. transit yards) and transportation infrastructure (e.g. bridges, tunnels, interchanges, roadway infrastructure, and transit railways or guideways). The types of security sensor data include environmental threat (e.g. chemical agent, toxic industrial chemical, biological, explosives, and radiological sensors), infrastructure condition and integrity, intrusion and motion, and object detection sensors. The data may be raw or pre-processed in the field.
2The center shall remotely monitor and control security sensor data collected in traveler secure areas, which include transit stations, transit stops, rest areas, park and ride lots, and other fixed sites along travel routes (e.g., emergency pull-off areas and travel information centers). The types of security sensor data include environmental threat (e.g. chemical agent, toxic industrial chemical, biological, explosives, and radiological sensors), intrusion and motion, and object detection sensors. The data may be raw or pre-processed in the field.
3The center shall remotely monitor and control security sensor data collected on-board transit vehicles. The types of security sensor data include environmental threat (e.g. chemical agent, toxic industrial chemical, biological, explosives, and radiological sensors) and object detection sensors. The data may be raw or pre-processed in the field.
4The center shall exchange security sensor data with other emergency centers.
5The center shall identify potential security threats based on collected security sensor data.
6The center shall verify potential security threats by correlating security sensor data from multiple sources.
7The center shall perform threat analysis based on correlations of security sensor and surveillance data.
8The center shall exchange threat analysis data with Alerting and Advisory Systems and use that data in local threat analysis processing.
9The center shall disseminate threat information to other agencies, including traffic, transit, maintenance, rail operations, and other emergency management centers.
10The center shall respond to control data from center personnel regarding security sensor data collection, processing, threat detection, and threat analysis.
11The center shall request activation of barriers and safeguards on request from center personnel.
12The center shall monitor maintenance status of the security sensor field equipment.
