THE SITUATIONAL AWARENESS AND IDENTIFICATION SYSTEM ( SAAIS) A CSC INTEGRATIONS WHITE PAPER AUTHOR: JASON JENKINS, FOUNDER/CEO OF CSC INTEGRATIons
From the abstract: "The Situational Awareness and Identification System (referred to herein as SAAIS) is a multi-faceted detection, analysis, and early warning system that is deployed adjacent to grade crossings and along railroad track right of ways, whereas the system identifies behavioral patterns that are consistent with known patterns of behavior that show intent to commit suicide, criminal acts, or terrorism. SAAIS further identifies when vehicles are stopped, stalled, and/or stuck on at-grade rail crossings or tracks, thereby allowing advanced early warning to oncoming trains prior to a collision."
Use these phone numbers to report a vehicle stalled or hung up on tracks or a signal malfunction. Provide the location, crossing number (if posted), and the name of the road or highway that crosses the tracks. Use these numbers only in the event of an emergency!
