Video: Super Bowl Security

There will be about 250,000 people in Tampa, Fla., for the Super Bowl today. And while the FBI has reported that there are no credible terror threats for the game, one bet you're guaranteed to win today is that security will be tight.

There will be about 250,000 people in Tampa, Fla., for the Super Bowl today. And while the FBI has reported that there are no credible terror threats for the game, one bet you're guaranteed to win today is that security will be tight.Tampa is likely to be the safest place in the country today, with no terror threats and roughly two years of security planning for the game. Yet, the two-year plan will be tightening the air space over Raymond James Stadium to watching over the sea ports.

But no matter how many local, state, and federal agencies are there -- they need to be able to work together and coordinate their efforts should anything happen. As the lessons of hurricane Katrina have taught us, inter-agency communication is key.

A good part of that communication behind the security of the game today involves an application from Infusion Development called Falcon Eye, which works on Microsoft Surface to move through real-time, 3-D data. Falcon Eye is integrated with an application from E-Sponder that will help security agencies, law enforcement, and first responders track and report any security incidents at the game.

Let's hope it's not needed to be put to hard use. Here's a video showing how it looks:

Now, if only I could get that on my iPhone . . .
