Restricted Security Area Surveillance

To prepare your Navtech devices for integration with Security Center, you must configure the Navtech system to communicate with the Genetecâ„¢ Restricted Security Area Surveillance (RSA Surveillance) plugin. For specific details about configuring your devices and software, refer to the Navtech documentation.

Before you begin

  • Make sure that your Navtech system is operating as per the manufacturer's specifications.
  • Make sure that your Navtech devices and software are compatible with the RSA Surveillance plugin. For the latest compatibility information, see Supported plugins in Security Center on the Genetec TechDoc Hub.

What you should know

Navtech's Witness API can receive and generate data as XML over Ethernet. This enables the plugin to receive data about tracks and alarms and also to send commands. Navtech provides an Interface Control Document (ICD), which outlines the data reports and command instructions. Please contact Navtech Radar for more information.


  1. For a Navtech Radar system, deploy and configure their Witness software as documented on their website.
  2. Make sure that the radar device is configured in the Navtech Witness application and is operating as expected.
  3. Make sure that you have the Interface Control Document (ICD) and that it is compatible with the plugin. For the latest compatibility information, see Supported plugins in Security Center on the Genetecâ„¢ TechDoc Hub.
  4. For some organizations, network security policies require that the IP devices, routers, and switches in their network block unused ports. If your organization has such policies in place, then make sure to open the TCP port that the RSA Surveillance plugin and the Navtech system use to communicate.
  5. Take note of the following information. You need it to configure the Navtech system in Security Center:
    • IP address of the server that hosts Navtech Witness
    • TCP port used to communicate with the plugin
