The C950 is uniquely powerful, versatile, and weighs a fraction of competing systems whose antennae can weigh six times more than our entire system
Atlanta, GA (PRWEB) September 24, 2014
ASIS 2014—SpotterRF, a previous ASIS Accolades winner, today announced availability of its newest, widest coverage radar system—the SpotterRF C950. At a trim five pounds, the C950 is extremely lightweight, as with all SpotterRF radar models. Yet, its 300-acre coverage area is twice that of any commercial SpotterRF product to date. There are no moving parts to maintain as with rotating radar with similar coverage potential. ASIS attendees may see a C950 compact ground radar demonstration at this year’s show (Booth# 4221), including integration with and newest developments in the SpotterRF SHIELD Robotic Perimeter Security System for Protection Beyond FencesTM.
“Customer and integrator response to this product is terrific,” states SpotterRF CEO Logan Harris. “The C950 is uniquely powerful, versatile, and weighs a fraction of competing systems whose antennae can weigh six times more than our entire system.”
Competitively priced, with a range of 1350 meters (0.84 miles) for a walking person, the SpotterRF C950 provides advanced perimeter warning for a wider variety of environments such as electrical substations, airports, solar farms, seaports, and borders. With no moving parts, the unit is virtually maintenance free.
With the successful deployment of SpotterRF in wide-open areas like Exxon’s Alaska oil fields, the C950 further expands the range at which perimeter intrusion is detected. In the case of Exxon, wildlife and oil field workers are safer using SpotterRF’s rugged perimeter protection device. San Diego County uses SpotterRF radar to protect its vital dam system. The US Navy has tested and Catalina Sea Ranch uses this radar to monitor harbor traffic. The Maryland Department of Transportation may benefit from the extended C950 range in its current SpotterRF deployment to protect high traffic bridges. The State of Arizona currently seeks funding to expand its use of SpotterRF radar to better secure its border with Mexico. These deployments all test SpotterRF’s performance under harsh all-weather conditions.
With its resellers, SpotterRF integrates its powerful Compact Surveillance Radar with the SpotterRF SHIELD system, providing high-end targeting and tracking (slew-to-cue) capability to a wide range of applications. Together, a robotic threat detection and response system is created. From the perspective of the intruder, once they cross into a protected area the system performs as if a human is tracking their every move. The threat is immediately addressed, even if operations center communications are down.
SpotterRF radar units come in many sizes, weigh as little as 1.5 lbs. each, use less energy than a light bulb (approx. 8W each), and can communicate with Google Earth, Milestone, AFT from SAIC and other Video Management System (VMS) software. Training takes less than 30 minutes in the field.
SpotterRF provides the world’s most advanced Compact Surveillance Radar (CSR) system for perimeter security and force protection. Made in the USA and engineered for extreme conditions, SpotterRF technology is the most compact, lightweight, energy efficient, and cost-effective radar for elite warfighters and critical infrastructure requirements.
