This article presents information on video surveillance. The third busiest canal in the world connects Chesapeake Bay with the Delaware River. Known as the C&D Canal, the Chesapeake and Delaware Canal is used by foreign and domestic shipping, tugs, barges and recreational boats. Over the past several years, the U.S. Army Corps of Engineers (USACE), which oversees operations of the canal, has been engaged in a number of upgrades. Officials wanted to be able to clearly see canal traffic. Security video integrator NetVersant Solutions of Chesapeake, Maryland, was chosen to find a solution.
