Configuring known object behavior - Restricted Security Area Surveillance 3.5

Restricted Security Area Surveillance Plugin Guide 3.5

Restricted Security Area Surveillance 3.5

To avoid unwanted or irrelevant intrusion alerts and automatically remove non-hostile targets from the map, you can configure the RSA Surveillance plugin to merge targets from unknown sources with targets from a known source.

What you should know

  • Known object behavior functions in the same way as auto fusion. It looks at the GPS positions of two targets and merges them if they are in close proximity to one another. The only difference is that a matching target disappears from the map when it is classified as a known target.
  • By default, a target is seen as an intrusion when detected by a tracking system, unless the plugin identifies the target as non-hostile. The plugin determines this based on the distance between a target from an unknown source and a target from a known source. A non-hostile target is then marked as a friend, and is removed from the map.
  • A target can revert to a threat if the identification no longer matches a known source.
  • In the RSA investigation task, you can filter on the targets that were merged with a target from a known source, using the Target marked as friend filter.


  1. From the Config Tool home page, open the Plugins task.
  2. Select the Restricted Security Area Surveillance role, and then click the Properties tab.
  3. In the Known object behavior section, configure the sensitivity settings:
    Two targets are merged when they are less than 50 meters (164 feet) apart.
    Two targets are merged when they are less than 25 meters (82 feet) apart.
    Two targets are merged when they are less than 10 meters (33 feet) apart.
    Enter the maximum distance that two targets can be from each other for them to be merged. The maximum is 100 meters (328 feet).
  4. Click Apply.
