INTRODUCTION
In a nuclear facility, asset monitoring and chain-of-
custody protocols are essential to maintain safety and
security. Most existing surveillance systems require
human interaction where security guards watch the
monitor wall and manually trigger alarms when they
detect security violations. Due to fatigue, the possibility
of missing alarms is high, even for well-trained security
personnel. These issues lead to the need for a multi-
camera surveillance system that automatically detects,
tracks, and records security violations in nuclear facilities.
In the literature, one popular choice for such a
surveillance system is the combination of an omni-
directional and a pan-tilt-zoom (PTZ) camera, referred to
as dual-camera system. Omni-directional cameras,
equipped with a field of view (FOV) of 180360, are
