US-based Artificial Intelligence Technology Solutions subsidiary Robotic Assistance Devices (RAD) has secured an order for responsive observation security agent (ROSA180) units from a ‘major’ US airport authority that owns and runs more than one airport.

The undisclosed client will receive six ROSA180 units.

With this deployment, the airport authority aims to improve the detection and deterrence of intruders and other unauthorised trespassers to parking garages and other secure zones.

These compact, self-contained units function as a security and communication solution and can be installed in 15 minutes.

Similar to other RAD solutions, ROSA180 only needs power as it has all the required communications hardware.

The artificial intelligence (AI)-powered security analytics of these units feature licence plate recognition, human and vehicle detection, responsive digital signage and audio messaging.

In addition, the units integrate with RAD’s software suite notification and response library.

The company stated that the solution provides optimised two-way communication for cellular, including live video from ROSA180’s ‘dual high-resolution, full-colour, always-on cameras’.

RAD CEO Steve Reinharz said: “We’re going to deliver great value to this highly visible client. The success of this deployment will likely blow open the doors for similar opportunities at airports around the globe.

“It’s very rewarding to see how major organisations are embracing RAD solutions as they seek to enhance their security profile while at the same time reducing their costs. And RAD helps them get there.”

According to AeroWeb, a web-based aerospace and defence market intelligence platform, the top ten airports in the US handle more than 350 million passengers per annum.

RAD is a technology start-up that offers robotics and AI-based solutions.
