Ms. Catherine Crwnp
American Civil Liberties Union

New York, NY 10004
Dear Ms. Crump:
On July 30, 2012, you submitted a Freedom oflnformation Act (FOIA), 5 U.S.C. § 552, request
to the Transportation Security Administration (TSA) for docwnents pertaining to TSA's "use
and/or funding of automatic license plate readers ('ALPRs')". On September 19,2012, TSA
informed you that a reasonable search of records was conducted and no responsive records were
located. You then filed an administrative appeal challenging the adequacy of the search
conducted by TSA on November 17, 2012. On January 8, 2013, you were advised that a second
search for records was conducted and TSA located records responsive to your request and
remanded them to the FOIA Branch for processing. You were further advised that once the
processing was completed the FOIA Branch would respond directly to you using FOIA case
nwnber TSA12-0730.
A report consisting of 179 has been reviewed and 170 pages are being released in their entirety,
with portions of the remaining nine pages withheld pursuant to Exemption (b)(6), which allows
for the withholding of all identifying information that applies to a particular individual when the
disclosure of such information "would constitute a clearly unwarranted invasion of personal
privacy." This requires the balancing of the public's right to disclosure against the individual's
right to privacy. After performing this analysis, it was determined that the privacy interest in the
identities of the individuals in the records you have requested outweigh any minimal public
interest in disclosure of the information.
The fees incurred to process your request do not exceed the minimwn threshold necessary for
charge and, therefore, there are no fees associated with processing this request.
Administrative Appeal
In the event that you wish to appeal this determination, an administrative appeal may be made in
writing to Kimberly Walton, Assistant Administrator, Office of Civil Rights & Liberties,
1
- 33771
31169 -
Ombudsman and Traveler Engagement (CRLIOTE), Transportation Security Administration,
601 South 12th Street, East Building, E7-121S, Arlington, VA 20598-6033. Your appeal must
be submitted within 60 days from the date of this determination. It should contain your FOIA
request number and state, to the extent possible, the reasons why you believe the initial
determination should be reversed. In addition, the envelope in which the appeal is mailed in
should be prominently marked "FOIA Appeal." Please note that the Assistant Administrator's
determination ofthe appeal will be administratively final. If you have any questions pertaining to
your request, please feel free to contact the FOIA Branch at 1-866-364-2872 or locally at 571227-2300.
Sincerely,
for Yvonne L. Coates

EXECUTIVE SUMMARY
During the 3-week time period from August 6 through August 23, 2007, the Northrop
Grumman Transportation Security Solutions (TSS) Surface Team supported the Highway
and Motor Carrier (HMC) Division and the Chief Technology Office (CTO) of the
Transportation Security Administration (TSA) in conducting Automatic License Plate
Recognition (ALPR) technology demonstrations in the vicinity of the Washington Dulles
International Airport (lAD).
The purpose of the demonstrations was to independently collect vendor-generated and
supplied data for analysis and comparison to evaluate how the different ALPR equipment
performed under similar conditions. Another purpose was to gather firsthand information
to assess how the technology could be utilized independently, or integrated with other
products or information, to:
•
•
•
Enhance the outer layer of security for airports or other surface transportation
scenarios.
Add defense in depth to current security measures.
Enhance the ability of preventing terrorist attacks by improving first response
alert time.
The information gathered during the demonstrations, coupled with information gathered
and analyzed in researching and evaluating ALPR technology, is presented in this
comprehensive report. The report contains the integrated data covering all vendors
participating in the August 2007 lAD ALPR technology. This report provides an all
encompassing overview of the A LPR demonstrations an d has be en prepared for
internal TSA use ONLY.
In order to minimize the possibility of inappropriately releasing proprietary, competition
sensitive, or company confidential information three additional reports assessing the
ALPR technology have been written:

PROJECT BACKGROUND
The TSA, operating within the Department of Homeland Security (DHS), is charged with
protecting the nation's transpmtation network. Within the TSA, Transportation Sector
Network Management (TSNM) leads the eight divisions charged with planning and
executing the overarching national effort to protect and secure our countries intermodal
transportation systems.
Since the creation of TSA in 2001, there have been many programs and measures
undertaken, across the various transportation modes, to provide for or improve the safety
of the traveling public. This report provides a summary of a recent collaboration effort,
primarily focused on improving surface transportation security, but with applicability and
utility in a layered security strategy of enhancing security crossing modes of
transportation. The ALPR demonstrations were completed in conjunction with, and with
the support of, the TSA HMC Division and the CTO.
The project involved preliminary research and analysis on remote vehicle identification
via document research, technical interchange meetings, demonstrations, and interviews;
by meeting with subject matter experts from local and Virginia and Maryland state
authorities; by attending demonstrations of the past and current technologies; and by
observing demonstrations and field experiments of these technologies by the
manufacturers.
Once initial analysis was performed, the TSA and Northrop Grumman team members
discussed the findings. Northrop Grumman then began to survey the existing vendors
whose systems are used to identify vehicles as they approach or pass surveillance points
to determine system suitability and their willingness to participate in actual
demonstrations and analysis. After selecting three vendors who performed
demonstrations at lAD, Northrop Grumman created this operational study and analysis by
evaluating the data gathered firsthand and additional data provided from the vendors.

DEMONSTRATIONS OVERVIEWS
Northrop Grumman worked with the TSA HMC staff to select a publicly accessible
facility where product technology demonstrations could be performed and later
evaluated. The TSA staff project liaison selected lAD located in Chantilly, Virginia.
Realistic ALPR product demonstrations scenarios were created and deployment locations
were evaluated to assess how Commercial Off-the-Shelf (COTS) ALPR technologies
could be deployed at discrete locations to enhance the outer security along the Dulles Toll
and Access Roads and on lAD grounds.
Although the license plate read results from each vendor are compared with the other
participating vendors, these demonstrations were not intended to put the vendors into a
competition. The demonstrations were conducted over a consecutive 3-week time period,
rather than concurrently, to allow each vendor the opportunity to independently deploy
their ALPR equipment in a live scenario. Each vendor was able to show the TSA, and
the invited demonstrations observers representing other government and law enforcement
agencies, the various types of ALPR equipment; highlight their different technologies;
and explain firsthand the possible advantages of using ALPR as a layer of security.
Prior to the August 2007 demonstrations, the selected vendors worked with Northrop
Grumman and the TSA staff liaison to ensure that the demonstrations equipment was
properly installed and in position for the demonstrations. The vendors ensured that their
screening equipment continued to work properly throughout the demonstrations that
results of the screening were being documented completely.
3.1
Demonstrations Scenarios
In order to evaluate the different ALPR technologies, practical demonstrations scenarios
were created and shared with each of the vendors in advance of their demonstrations
dates. These common scenarios were executed by each of the vendors, during each week
of the 3-week period, in an attempt to achieve a common baseline for consistent
comparison ofthe results.
3.1.1
Blacklisted Plates
In order to evaluate the vendors' capability to quickly identify and respond to license
plates of known interest, a collection of retired license plates from each of the United
States (U.S.) was purchased. From that collection, 20 of the plates, referred to as the
"Blacklist", were selected to be used for detection and operator alert evaluation during
the lAD technology demonstrations. The blacklisted plate information was provided to
the vendors in advance of the demonstrations period so that they could be added to their
- 33784
31182 -
alert databases. Of the 20 plates chosen to be used as blacklisted plates, 12 of the plates
were purposely selected for the demonstrations period because prior research had
revealed that the plate design, lettering, or background had presented challenges for
ALPR camera image capture or system recognition/interpretation during past evaluations.
Table 1: Pre-supplied Blacklist Plates
3.1.2 Demonstrations Scenarios Routes Driven
Route drivers were each given six sets of licenses plates to use on their vehicle and a set
of scenarios with three demonstrations routes mapped out.
Figure 1: Route Driver One,
Blacklist Plates
Figure 2: Route Driver Two,
Blacklist Plates

31183 -
Driven Route: The vehicle route starting point was the parking lot to the east of the
intersection of Autopilot and Aviation Drives, shown as Point I in the Figure 3 below.
The driver would affix the blacklisted plate to his/her vehicle and begin the route by
pulling out of the parking area, turning right onto Aviation Drive, passing the fixed
camera location, and continuing on to pass the mobile camera location. In the image,
Point I is the Parking Area, Point 2 is the Fixed Equipment Area, Point 3 is the Mobile
System Exit Traffic Site, and Point 4 is the Covert Equipment Site.
The driven route continued from Point 3, where the driver performed aU-turn on Rudder
Road, and returned to the Dulles Access Road going toward the covert equipment at
Point 2. Once they had passed under the bridge where the covert equipment was located,
the driver would then continue on to Saarinen Circle, taking a right onto Copilot Way,
and driving back to the initial starting area at Point I. The driver would then change
license plates and start the route over again.

Demonstrations Locations
Covert C amera E valuation Site: The location that was chosen to demonstrate the
vendor's covert camera and the equipment's capability to monitor vehicle entrance traffic
as it approached the airport was the east entrance of the Dulles Access Road, located at
approximately Latitude 38:57:32:21 North and Longitude 77:26:43:56 West near the
Aviation Drive~~"'-
Figure 4: Covert Camera Evaluation Site
Fixed Camera Evaluation Site: The fixed cameras and equipment were installed on the
traffic light at the corner of Autopilot Drive and Aviation Drive and monitored traffic as
it traveled eastward along Autopilot Drive. This location was chosen due to fixed power
availability and to monitor vehicles traveling towards the airport that may not have used
the Dulless Access Road. The intersection of Autopilot Drive and Aviation Drive is
located at approximately Latitude 38:57:29:53 and Longitude 77:26:59:52.
Figure 5: Fixed Camera Evaluation Site

Mobile C amera S ystem E xit T raffle Evaluation S ite: The exiting airport traffic
equipment monitoring location site was set up closer to the airport to catch the traffic
flow exiting the airport. The location as approximately Latitude 38:57:17:15 North and
Longitude 77:26:38:53 West. This exit location was selected to demonstrate the ALPR
roadside mobile abilities.
Figure 6: Mobile Camera System Exit Traffic Evaluation Site
Mobile Camera Evaluation at Airport Parking Sites: There were two parking areas
chosen at lAD to demonstrate the Mobile ALPR equipment. The first area was the daily
parking lot located at Autopilot Drive. The vendors drove through the parking garage in
ALPR equipped vehicles, starting at tbe main level's entrance and moving up to the
upper parking deck. The second area chosen for evaluation was the long-term parking lot
where each vendor was asked to drive through the entire set of lots. This parking area
has the capacity to hold up to 8,000 cars.
3.3
Demonstrations Site Limitations
Vehicle Speeds: Demonstrations were performed using drivers operating vehicles
traveling the actual vehicle traffic patterns in the vicinity of lAD and were evaluated as
they traveled with other vehicles governed by the posted speed limits. There was no
attempt made to verify the maximum ALPR camera performance capabilities related to
vehicle speeds claimed by each vendor as part of the demonstrations conducted.
Power Supply: The ALPR cameras and associated equipment used by the vendors for
their demonstrations were installed for a \-week period and then uninstalled. The
proximity and availability of electrical power was a key factor in choosing the location
for the fixed camera evaluations.
- 33788
31186 -
Camera Access: At the fixed camera evaluation site the cameras monitoring vehicle
traffic were installed on the arm of the traffic light post, approximately 20 feet above
ground level. Access to the cameras involved closing a lane of traffic and using a scissor
lift to reach the camera. Each vendor had limited opportunity to reposition their cameras
after initial installation.
Weather: The demonstrations took place over a 3-week period in August 2007, and
each vendor dealt with weather-related issues. During Week 1, Remington-Elsag dealt
with daytime temperatures in excess of 100 degrees; during Week 2, PIPS Technology
dealt with excess of 90 degree temperatures and rain; and during Week 3, Appian
Technology dealt with rain and some fog-like conditions.
Data D ownloads:
Vendors used Global System for Mobile communications
(GSM)/General Packet Radio Services (GPRS) networks to download their data from the
fixed camera site and were limited by the transfer speeds and issues associated with that
technology.
3.4
Demonstrations Video Tapes
Video cameras, set up on tripods, were used to capture and monitor passing traffic at two
of tbe ALPR locations. Those locations were the traffic light where the fixed cameras
where located and the bridge where the covert cameras were located. The videos were
created in order to monitor the evaluations and for post evaluation analysis and
comparison of total cars passing the evaluation sites during the periods that the ALPR
cameras were in operation.

VENDOR EQUIPMENT OVERVIEW
Different weather-related and ambient environmental conditions, such as snow or rain,
high sunlight, low light and the nighttime darkness, can affect an ALPR camera's
operational capability and performance. To combat these conditions, ALPR vendors use
different types and combinations of cameras, such as monochrome, color, and video, with
infrared (IR) illumination as the light source.
ALPR camera IR illuminators work within undetectable margins for human eye and are
often used where a traditional light or camera flash might disturb the vision of the drivers
or alert the drivers to the cameras presence. When coupled with a monochrome or color
camera theIR illuminates the plate's reflective surface causing the characters to stand out
and allowing for an image to be read or captured.
The following table summarizes the ALPR cameras used by the vendors during the
demonstrations:

4.1.2 Equlpme11t as Descri!Jed by Remingtou-Elsag
TI1e ALPR capabilities of Remington-Eisag used dming these demonstrations consisted
of three systems: the Mobile Plate Hunter (MPH)-900, the XPH-8700, nnd the FPH-900.
MPH-900 Camera
The MPH-900 camera, combined with command center software, is able to coordinate
hundreds of fixed and mobile ALPR devices to capture license plates in real time. The
MPH-900 was used nnd evaluated at the mobile site during the ALPR demonstrations at
IAD in August 2007.

Figure 15: Remington- Elsag MPH-900 Covert
Mounting
The MPH -900 camera can read cars traveling up to 140 mph in four lanes of traffic and
can read at passing speeds of75 mph.' The MPH-900 translates the read plate data into a
digital image, checks an onboard hot list database, and returns an alarm back to the
operator in milliseconds if there is a match. The alarm also lists what crime was
committed. The MPH -900 also delivers date, time, and GPS locations, pinpointing the
most recent sightings of a suspect vehicle.
According to Remington-Elsag, the MPH-900 provides the following benefits:
Real-Time Intervention:
•
•
•
•
•
Watch list filtering
Probable cause generation for unbiased, targeted search
Auto theft recovery
Plate manipulation
Rental contract violations
Intelligence Gathering:
•
•
•
•
Link analysis
Recurring traffic pattern analysis
Suspect surveillance
"Late Hit" analysis

According to Remington-Eisag Proprietary Information booklet. These numbers were not tested as part
of the August 2007 demonstration.
- 33796
31194 -
Other benefits:
•
Built-in capability to communicate with a police operations center for alarm
notification and database updates
Ability to receive and transmit wireless updates
Processor unit is the size of a small box for easy storage in the trunk of a vehicle
Low power consumption: unit requires less than 60W of 12V DC to function
•
•
•
The MPH -900 instantly alarms on a blacklisted plate and will display on either a laptop
computer or a mobile data terminal (MDT). An alarm consists of an audible sound and
visual alert display on the computer screen. Alarms can be configured in a variety of
ways by the computer operator, such as different sounds for different levels of threat.
Alarms can be broadcast to an operations center or a support vehicle. The system has the
ability to store a hot list of license plates with up to four million lines of data. The system
works day or night in all weather conditions.
MPH-V3 Camera
Another enhancement to the MPH-900 is the MPH-V3. The MPH-V3 was used during
the lAD demonstrations at the mobile site. It was mounted inside of the car and the
MPH-900 was mounted on the roof. The MPH-V3 is a dashboard mounted portable unit
that allows video and zoom up to a mile away. The MPH-V3 should work in any
daylight condition and is only compatible with the MPH-900.
According to Remington-Elsag, the MPH-V3 allows the user to:
•
•
•
•
Scan plates directly in front of LPR vehicle
Scan plates from a 22x zoom distance
Link to a recording device for Digital Video Recorder (DVR)
Conduct surveillance from nearly a mile

XPII-8700 Camera
The second type of system used by Remington-Elsag during the ALPR demonstrations
was the XPH-8700 at the covert site. The XPH-8700 was developed as a solution for
covert fixed ALPR. It is a portable, ali-in-one camera that integrates all the components
required to enable ALPR from fixed installations. All necessary parts are together inside
a case that looks similar to a standard video-surveillance outdoor camera. Components
inside the case include the sensor, an independent IR light system, processing unit, and an
independent power source inside a construction barrel.
Figure 17: Remingtou-Eisag, XPH-8700 Covert Unit
The XPH-8700 provides the same real-time intervention and intelligence gathering
benefits as the MPH-900. The XPH-8700 can coordinate with the MPH-900. XPH-8700
alarms can be broadcast to an operations center, laptop, or Personal Digital Assistant
(PDA). The system operates on a rechargeable independent power source and works day
or night at highway speeds.
FPII-900 Camera
The third system used by Remington-Elsag during the ALPR demonstrations was the
FPH-900 at the fixed site. The FPH-900 offers a solution for fixed location ALPR. The
FPH-900 contains all of the essential components of the XPH-8700 that are detailed in
the first paragraph of the XPH-8700 section. The same benefits apply to the FPH-900 as
the previous two systems.
- 33798
31196 -
Figure 18: Remington-Elsag FPH-900
Similar to the MPH-900, the FPH-900 instantly alarms on a blacklisted plate and will
display on either a laptop computer or a MDT. Alarms are audible and visual and can be
broadcast to an operations center or a support vehicle. The system can contain a hot list
with up to four million lines of data. The system works day or night in all weather
conditions. The FPH-900 is the best solution for gate and high speed applications.

4.1.3 Equipment as Described by PIPS Technology
CAMERA TYPES
P362 Camera
The P362 is the compact ALPR image capture system from PIPS Technology. The P362
is equipped with patented filter and flash techniques to read images clearly even in bright
light, such as that from the sun or other cars. Although it was primarily designed for
mobile or portable applications, the small size of the P362 makes it suitable for many
other applications such as parking, law enforcement, and access control. During the
ALPR demonstrations at lAD in August 2007, the P362 was used on a car as a mobile
application with the processor in the trunk of the car, similar to the picture below:
Figure 19: PIPS P362 Camera roof mount
corner mount
Figure 21: PIPS P362 Camera optional portable window mount
PIPS describes the camera unit as a monochrome charge coupled device (CCD) camera
with a high IR sensitivity, surrounded by an illuminator consisting of a ring of eye-safe,
IR light-emitting diodes (LEDs). The metal housing is waterproof and the unit has no
moving parts. The P362 boasts the capability of easy mobile or fixed system
- 33800
31198 -
configuration and installation. As an option, the P362 can be supplied with an integrated
overview camera (color or monochrome). This means that an ALPR system using the
P362 camera will, under suitable lighting, always provide two images, a color and a
monochrome.
For mobile surveillance, the P362 camera is connected to the mobile computer, which
runs the Police ANPR Graphic Interface System (PAGIS) software. The P362 scans the
license plates of passing vehicles. The numbers are then sent through PAGIS where a
real-time comparison is made of license plate reads to the database and alerts are given
when a match is made. During the ALPR mobile demonstrations, certain license plates
were manually entered into the PAGIS, all of which should have registered as a match.
P372 'Spike' Camera
The P372 'Spike' is an integrated ALPR camera, illuminator, and processor that are
supposed to save on system cost, complexity, and implementation. The P3 72 was
designed for mobile and fixed applications. During the ALPR demonstrations at IAD in
August 2007, Spike was used at the fixed and covert sites.
Figure 22: PIPS P372 mounted onsite traffic light
Figure 23: PIPS P372 camera and sun shield
As with the P362, the P372 Spike has a monochrome CCD camera with a built in IR
LED. The main difference with Spike is the integrated processor, which incorporates
PIPS Technology's Auto plate ALPR engine. The engine can operate internally from the
video image or by an external sensor.
- 33801
31199 -
Spike will output the following ALPR data:
•
•
•
•
Time, date, and location
License plate patch image or full IR image
Overview image (if camera fitted)
Read confidence
PIPS states that Spike can be integrated into a variety of systems via Transmission
Control Protocol/Internet Protocol (TCP/IP) Ethernet with socket and FTP protocols, a
relay output (for example, to control a barrier), RS232, as well as true IP connectivity
over GPRS/GSM. An optional wireless LAN connection provides the capability to save
on installation and cabling costs. Set-up and monitoring of the camera is accomplished
through a web browser interface from a PC or a Personal Digital Assistant (PDA). A
USB port allows stored data to be removed from the camera.

Post Demonstrations Image Data Analysis
Following the August 2007 demonstrations period, Northrop Grumman performed an extensive
and manpower intensive review of the capture license plate image data that was recorded by
each of the vendors during their demonstrations periods. Team members visually compared
each of the software-generated license plate read interpretations to the images of the actual
license plates and manually recorded what the system read. The following sections summarize
the results for each of the vendors.

Pollf Demonstrations Image Data Analysis for Appian Technology, Inc.
Appian Technology submitted their results in Microsoft (MS) Excel and HTML format.
Table 5: Appian Technology Data Sample
Appian Technology's camera images were both captured and stored at a high resolution,
producing a sharp image. For each vehicle plate read, Appian Technology provided one or two
images. When there are two images, Appian Technology's system combines them together and
saves them as one single image. This method saves database space, while maintaining a higher
resolution. Examples of these images, which were decreased in size to fit this document, are
shown on the next page. The images shown were taken, using the Cobra camera, at various
locations.

5.2.3 Post Demonstrations Image Data Analysis for PIPS Technology, Inc.
PIPS Technology provided their demonstrations results in a different format than the other
vendors. They allowed access to their data stored offsite via the Internet by loading two
laptops provided to PIPS Technology with the proprietary PIPS back-end software. A dongle,
a piece of hardware that must be attached to the computer to make the secured software run,
was also provided and had to be connected to the laptop in order to gain access to the data. The
dongle is a security device that prevents the unauthorized copying of protected software, but it
also made the post demonstrations analysis of the PIPS Technology image data more
challenging.
After several attempts to retrieve the demonstrations data stored at PIPS Technology the
Northrop Grumman analysts identified three issues. The first issue was that not all the
expected data was present or retrievable. When exporting data from the back-end database
only I 0,000 lines of text data would export. The second issue the analysts faced was the
challenge of having to use the back-end software for image and text interpretation. The process
of verifying the data was extremely slow and data manipulation or enhancement for image
interpretation was difficult. The third issue was that copying, saving, and storing the images
individually off of the back-end software via the Internet for archival or external analysis was
not feasible. The images were binary and saved in such a way that the back-end software and
associated dongle was required to view them. The PIPS Technology representatives were
asked to provide their full demonstrations image and read data as well as a method that would
allow the images and text to be stored and manipulated outside of their proprietary software.
PIPS Technology was not able to re-supply the full data set, but they did provide an executable
script that was installed and run on the laptops and that pulled the available data from their
back-end database into a MS Excel spreadsheet and stored copies of the images to a local
directory.

PIPS Technology images were captured at a high resolution and were viewable in near real
time during the demonstrations but are stored at a lower resolution in their back-end database.
The reason for the lower resolution is to decrease the size of each image in order to save space
in the database and also to allow the ability to store more images if necessary. The images
shown on the next page are some examples of license plates captured by PIPS Technology.

One consequence that resulted from lowering the image resolutions for database storage is that
some of the image captures were not readable during post demonstrations data analysis, even
after enlargement and attempted enhancement. Below are what these image captures looked
like to the human eye. They are shown in actual size and clarity, as provided by PIPS
Technology, before any changes.

The pmpose of this part of the demonstration was to show how placing fixed cameras at
strategic intersections arotmd the airport could benefit security in times of high alert. The first
stationary camera equipment location was set up at a traffic light pole located on the comer of
Aviation Drive and Autopilot Drive (see section 3.1 of this rep01t for site description). Dming
their demonstrations dates, each vendor mounted two of their cameras on the arm of the traffic
pole. These cameras read the rear plates of vehicles passing tmder the traffic light. This was
the only camera location that had an external power source available to operate the vendors'
cameras and associated equipment.

Covert Camera Site Evaluation Results
The purpose of this demonstration was to show how portable equipment with self-contained
power could be deployed. The second stationary cameia equipment location was set up near
the Dulles Airport Access Road entrance, tmder the Aviation Drive Btidge (see section 3.1 of
this report for site description). The vendor supplied covert camera equipment to be positioned
in that location for pre-detetmined amollllls of time. The covert equipment used was potiable
ALPR equipment and was set up to monitor incoming Dulles Access Road traffic as it passed
by the location going toward the aitport.

Mobile Equipment Evaluation at Parking Areas Results
These demonstrations were conducted to show how using the mobile equipment to scan
parking areas could provide help with identifying suspect vehicles. The fomth aud fifth sites
consisted of two parking areas where demonstrations would be held. The first was a daily
JJarking garage and the second was the long-temt parking area (see Section3.1 of this repo1i for
site desctiptions). The vendor's pre-equipped ALPR vehicle was ddven by the vendor, with
two Northrop Gmmman staff members in the vehicle, through one of the daily parking garages
and through the entire long-tenn parking area.. Tltese demonstrations were also performed to
provide lAD perso1111el infollll8tion on how newer ALPR equipment could be used to intprove
their currently installed parking lot monitoring systems.

Reported Alarms - Blacklisted Plates
A selected set of blacklisted plates was chosen to be used for the demonstrations. In addition, the legal license plates belonging to the Northrop
Grumman team members participating in the demonstrations was recorded. The list of these plates was given to each vendor on the frrst day of their
demonstrations and was used to assess the vendors' camera performance at the stationary camera locations. A random selection of plate numbers
taken from parked vehicles was recorded, provided to the vendors, and used during mobile camera demonstrations in the parking areas. The tables
below, compiled from vendor data, list the plates, the number of times they were read, and the number of alarms recorded. The plates listing zero in
both the "Times Read" and "Number of Alarms" columns represent instances where a demonstrations observer manually noted and recorded a plate
that should have been captured but the system did not read or alarm.

PERFORMANCE IMPROVEMENTS
In new installations, all errors would be monitored by the vendor for excessive mistakes and
adjustments made to the system to improve upon the system's capabilities. The results of the
camera and software performance would be modified and refined to target improvements and
corrections for commonly recurring mistakes and adjustments would be made to the system.
The vendors who performed demonstrations at lAD indicated that they would normally target
their software interpretation algorithms to the location of the camera installations and would
refine the algorithms to maximize the correct interpretations of the most expected state vehicle
plates. The August 2007 demonstrations included blacklist plates from a broad cross section of
the U.S. so it was not necessarily prudent to adjust algorithms to focus on Washington D.C.
metro area plates which were most prevalent in the vicinity of the lAD demonstrations area.
8.1
Performance Improvement Example: Appian Technology
An example of commonly recurring image misinterpretation taken from Appian Technology's
data would be the Maryland seven character license plates. In some of these plates, where the
license plate contained the character 'M', the system read the 'M' character as an 'H'. In post
demonstrations analysis of Appian Technology's data, there were approximately I 76
occurrences of the 'M' being read as 'H'. To correct the transposing of digits, or mismatching of
alphanumeric characters like this example would require adjustments to the systems
interpretation algorithms.

Performance Improvement Example: Remington-Elsag
An example of how updates to a commonly recurring image misinterpretation could improve
performance results was taken from Remington-Elsag's data. In post demonstrations analysis
of Remington-Elsag's data, there were approximately 317 occurrences of the transpositions of
the characters 'W' and 'M' where the letter 'M' was identified by the system as a 'W'. To
correct the transposing of digits, or mismatching of alphanumeric characters like this example,
would require adjustments to the systems algorithms.

Performance Improvement Example: PIPS Technology
An example of how updates to a commonly recurring image misinterpretation could improve
performance results was taken from PIPS Technology's data. In post demonstrations analysis of
PIPS Technology's data, there were approximately 230 occurrences of the transpositions of the
characters 'E' and 'K' where the letter 'K' was identified by the system as an 'E'. To correct the
transposing of digits, or mismatching of alphanumeric characters like this example, would
require adjustments to the systems algorithms.

APPLYING THE PARETO PRINCIPLE
The Pareto principle, also known as the 80-20 rule, states that for many events, such as those
described above, . 80 percent of the effects come from 20 percent of the causes. The
demonstrations data was analyzed to the number of errors occurring on each license plate and the
type of each error. It was than sorted by the number of occurrences and the top 20 percent of
those errors were selected as the number of errors for possible fixes.

Applying the Pareto Principle to Appian Technology Datil
The data indicated 53.01 percent of enors came from transposed digits and 46.99 percent of
en·ors came ft·om dropped digits (Table 27). If the vendor were to perform fixes and updates to
the top 20 percent of the dropped and transposed en·ors (Table 28), the read rate could improve
as much as 80 percent putting it to an approximate read rate of97 percent accuracy (Cha1135).

Applying the Pareto Principle to Remlngton-Elsag Data:
The data indicated 54.92 percent of errors came from dropped digits; 25.90 percent of ell'ors
came from added digits; and 19.18 percent of ell'ors came from transposed digits. (Table 29) If
the vendor were to perfom1 fixes and updates to the top 20 }Jercent of the dropped, added and
transposed errors (Table 30), the read rate could improve as much as 80 }Jercent putting it to an
approximate read rate of96 percent accuracy (Chart 36).

BACKGROUND RESEARCH
14.1
License Plate Formats:
In the U.S., license plates are issued by an agency of the state and the formats of issued plates
vary from state to state making it difficult for a system to be put into place that can read all
license plates. The following is just a sample of the differences between states:
»
»
»
»
»
»
»
»
»
»
Georgia:
o Passenger plates -I, 0, Q, U, and V are not used.
Idaho:
o County allocation system. Counties were coded by first letter and then
numerically, so that the first county alphabetically to start with 'B' is given code
'lB', the second is '2B', etc.
Maryland:
o Does not use I, 0, Q, nor U on any plate, other than organizational, vanity, and
amateur radio.
Mississippi:
o County allocation system. Regular passenger plates are embossed, but rental car
series and special issues are flat. Mississippi does not use the alpha character '0'
or the numerical combination '666' on plates.
NewYork:
o Empire State High Plates -Letters I, 0, and Q are not used in any position.
North Carolina:
o On specialty plates the numeral '0' & letter '0' are interchangeable. The special
characters(*&"# [email protected]$!?) may be used in your plate text.
North Dakota:
o Passenger plates use 'I' and '0' in the middle position only, but an exception was
made for the GKI, GLI, GMI and GNI series.
Ohio:
o A zero (0) must always be led or followed by another number 1-9.
Virginia:
o Does not use I, 0, or Q on standard passenger plates.
Florida:
o Wheelchair icon: The license plate might read 46798 with a wheelchair icon
following. The wheelchair icon actually stands for "WT". The tag would be run as
46798WT.
Unfortunately, there is no quick fix for setting a national format standard. One frequent
suggestion is that states refrain from allowing the use of vanity plates and instead use a system
like the county allocation systems where the characters are based on state, county, and vehicle
type. However, by charging fees for vanity plates, states are able to make more revenue.

14.2
State Names:
The major objective of any ALPR system is to interpret license plate alphanumeric characters.
Some states are looking for applications that read the jurisdiction which issued the plate. This
task is a difficult one because not all states have the full state name on the plate; some used
specialized or cursive fonts and the location of the state name on the plates varies. When the
state name is present, it is usually either too small to be captured by the system's color camera or
it is coated, as the background of most plates are, with reflective paint so IR cameras do not pick
it up.
Some applications suggest, when entering blacklisted plates, the state information be associated
with the data so ifthere is a hit the system pops up the associated state and the officer can check
the information against the current hit.
14.3
Multiple Jurisdictions:
Sharing data is often listed as an issue. State Police, County Police, and City Police forces would
be able to benefit if they would be willing to share their data with other police agencies.
Federal, State, and local regulations require that agreements between agencies within their
respective jurisdictions receive advanced approval from their governing hierarchy. This
precludes informal information sharing agreements between those agencies. Add to this, the fact
that many requirements vary from agency to agency according to the statutes by which they were
governed and you begin to see the difficulty of sharing data from city to city, city to county, etc.
".Florida's ... home to about 400 law enforcement agencies, including city, county, and
university police departments, sheriffs, and district attorneys. All of them have their own
budgets, computer-aided dispatch systems, and record management systems. The problem was
that none of them were connected. The Florida Department of Law Enforcement (FDLE)
established eight metadata planners, one for each ofthe state's seven regions plus one for the
Department of Corrections. Then the FDLE decided to use the National Information Exchange
Model, an interagency framework for sharing information using Extensible Markup Language,
an open standard that allows exchange of infonnation regardless of computer systems or
platforms.<GCN Article),

Appendix B - Definitions of Terms
Algorithm:
In mathematics, computing, linguistics, and related disciplines, an algorithm is a procedure
(a finite set of well-defined instructions) for accomplishing some task which, given an initial
state, will terminate in a defined end-state. The computational complexity and efficient
implementation of the algorithm are important in computing, and this depends on suitable
data structures.
There are six primary algorithms that the software requires for identifying a license plate:
Plate localization- responsible for finding and isolating the plate on the picture
Plate orientation and sizing- compensates for the skew of the plate and adjusts the
dimensions to the required size.
Normalization- adjusts the brightness and contrast of the image.
Character segmentation - finds the individual characters on the plates.
Optical Character Recognition (OCR)- translates images of text into machineeditable text or pictures of characters into a standard encoding scheme representing
them.
Syntactical/Geometrical analysis -check characters and positions against country
specific rules.
Capture Card:
The capture cards have the ability to capture multiple camera video source inputs, whether
raw video or multiplexed. One card can handle up to eight inputs and multiplex will give
you 16 inputs. It converts the video signal from the camera into a digital signal used by the
operating system in conjunction with the applications.
Some ALPR systems require an external capture card be used for their cameras in addition
to the internal video caption card. (Return to stoplight chart)
Character Cells:
Every letter or number occupies a single cell. A cell nominally is 3 inches (7.6 em) high; this
measurement can vary slightly depending on the cell's vertical placement. Unusual
"truncated" character cells are only 2 inches (5.1 em) in height. Each cell's width and syntax
(whether restricted to a letter or a number) act to determine the maximum number of cells
which -- on North American plates --is 8K
Blank spaces, short hyphens, periods and bullets are narrower than most characters and
occupy a half-cell. Half-height characters (in the vertical) can be stacked so two are
accommodated within a single cell. On occasion, three may be stacked vertically as done by
the State of Maryland, or embossed diagonally on some U.S. Federal Government-issued
plates. Even four diagonal characters are found on some State of Nevada aealer plates.
- 33906
31304 -
Data Packet:
In information technology, a packet is a formatted block of information carried by a
computer network. A packet consists of three elements: the first element is a header, which
marks the beginning of the packet; the second element is the payload, which contains the
information to be carried in the packet; the third element is a trailer, which marks the end of
the packet.
Excluded Characters:
Absent from the set of standard letters and numbers (A through Z; zero through nine). On
State of Wyoming plates, for example, the letters "I", "0" and "Q" are not used when all
other characters are numbers. The number "I" may not be substituted for the letter "I" nor
the number "0" for the letter "0". A four-character plate cannot contain more than two
letters "W" nor two letters "M".
License Plate Fabrication:
Embossing
The most commonly encountered means of plate manufacturing; a metal
blank is placed face-down on an anvil and the character die is struck into it.
The letters and numbers appear in relief on the front of the plate.
Jncusing
Also called "debossing" is similar to embossing except the plate is face-up
on the anvil. Viewed from the front, the characters seem to be pressed
inward. Plates from Vermont are incused.
Single-Step
Technique
Flat
Used by Alaska, Arkansas, Colorado, Delaware, the District of Columbia,
Georgia, Indiana, Iowa, Minnesota, Mississippi, Missouri, Montana,
Nebraska, Nevada, New Mexico, New York, Ohio, Oregon, South Dakota,
Tennessee, Texas, Washington, Wyoming, the U.S. Federal Government
and the Department of State), the plate is not hammered at all. A graphic
lamination process applies the materials so foreground characters remain
flush with the background. Other locales are considering a transition to this
newer methodology.
Delaware, Indiana, Iowa, Montana, Nebraska, South Dakota, Tennessee,
Wyoming, and the District of Columbia, have digitally produced flat
license plates. Many U.S. states now use a color thermal transfer
production process that produces a flat license plate for only short-run
plates such as personalized license plates and special interest plates.

Infrared (IR):
IR lies between the visible and microwave portions of the electromagnetic spectrum. IR is
the part of the invisible spectrum that is contiguous to the red end of the visible spectrum
and that comprises electromagnetic radiation of wavelengths from 800 nm to I mm. IR light
has a range of wavelengths, just like visible light has wavelengths that range from red light
to violet. "Near IR" light is closest in wavelength to visible light and "far IR" is closer to the
microwave region of the electromagnetic spectrum.
Characteristics: IR radiation has a longer wavelength (lower frequency) and lower energy
than light from the visual spectrum. The spectral range from 700 to 1350 nanometers can be
photographed but conventional cameras are limited to the range of approximately 700 to 925
nanometers. IR beyond the 1350 nanometer range can be imaged but only with special nonphotographic equipment.
International Protection (IP) Ratings:
The IP Rating system provides a means of classifying the degrees of protection from solid
objects and liquids afforded by electrical equipment and enclosures. Specifications for
Degrees of Protection of Enclosures of Switchgear and Control Gear for voltages up to and
including 1000 VAC and 1200 VDC, BS 5420: 1977; and IEC 144:1963. (Also referred to
as the Ingress Protection Rating.)
IP65:
An IP test standard.
intrusion to the units.
TheiP65 standard ensures that there will be no particles or dust
IP66:
An IP test standard. The IP66 standard ensures that there will be no particles or dust
intrusion to the units and they are protected against strong jets of water - limited ingress
permitted (e.g. for use on ship decks).
IP67:
An IP test standard. The IP66 standard ensures that there will be no particles or dust
intrusion to the units and they are waterproof if submerged in water up to I meter.

Optical Character Recognition (OCR)
A type of computer software designed to translate images of handwritten or typewritten text
(usually captured by a scanner) into machine-editable text, or to translate pictures of
characters into a standard encoding scheme representing them (e.g. ASCII or Unicode).
Safety Class 1M:
Class IM laser products have a wavelength range of 302.5 to 106 nm. Like Class I laser
products, Class IM products are safe to eyes and skin under normal conditions, including
when users view the laser beam directly. However, users should not incorporate optics that
could concentrate the output into the eyes (e.g., a telescope with a IM laser emitting a wellcollimated beam).
Scofflaw List:
A list of drivers who violate the law or fail to answer court summons. Typically a vehicle's
license plate number will be placed on the "scofflaw" list when the owner of the vehicle has
a ticket that has remained unpaid for a certain number of days. It will remain on the scofflaw
list until the amount owed has been paid in full.
Syntax:
Any consistent ordering of characters, defined by systematic placement of letters and/or
numbers; Horizontal character spacing also is a component of syntax. When fewer than the
maximum number of characters appears on the plate, justification (whether flush left, flush
right, centered or full) is another attribute that can designate a particular issuing authority.
With a "custom-ordered" or "personalized" plate (sometimes termed a "vanity" or "prestige"
plate), syntactic rules and regulations generally do not apply. Though, in a majority of such
cases, the plate's character allowance (number of cells) is unchanged.
Special Characters:
Special characters form a superset of the typical ones. They may be true letters (l\1),
numerals (0), symbols (&) or icons (like the "keystone" found on State of Pennsylvania
plates).

government &llencles. Appian Is the onlv ALPII supplier to all 4a pollee forces In England and Wales
through the Spectrum project.
The high accuracy of the Talon ALPR system makils Appian a first choice for those eustomers who
require a high performance ALPR capability on multi-carriageway roads, whether In transportable,
mobile or fixed site Installations. Talon Is also the chosen system in ten UK port Installations, major
airports, the Doeklands, motol'llillys, CCTV wstem$, In various p(IIJOO mobile and transportable
wnflsuratlons and lrl the cltlf Of LOndon's Rlns of Steilll.
The Ftlng-of-!ll:eells Independently tested on a regular basis and must maintain performance levels
In excess <1f 91>%.
Appian Technology has been operatln!lln the US for the last four years and establlshii!d Appian
Technology Incorporated, office In Charlotte, North Carolina since September 2006.
To date Appian Technology has Jn exeess of one hundred and fifty sv$ttmsln operation across the
