PureTech Systems Announces Successful Integration with OWL GroundAware Radar
PHOENIX, Ariz. -- PureTech Systems announced today the successful integration of the OWL GroundAware GA1360 2D digital multibeam forming radar system with the PureActiv Rapid-Deploy Autonomous Perimeter Surveillance System (R-DAPSS).
R-DAPSS is equipped with PureTech's patented geospatial and AI boosted video analytics, PureActiv, which provides among the highest probability of detection while maintaining near-zero nuisance alarms for perimeter and wide-area protection. The easily relocatable trailer is equipped with radar, PTZ Cameras and PureActiv Auto-verification to eliminate nuisance alarms and perform auto-tracking, and deterrents such as loud hailers and strobe lights. In addition, the R-DAPSS is solar and backup generator powered, needing little to no fuel, depending on installation location, thus providing an environmentally friendly protection system that does not require ground penetration and has minimal impact on local wildlife.
The GA1360 system from Observation Without Limits (OWL) combines advanced digital beamforming radar technology, classification intelligence, reconfigurability, and easy integration with other security systems (such as video management and access control systems) to bring 360 ̊ of real-time, all-weather situational awareness for the physical security of perimeters and other sensitive areas of critical sites. As the foundation for event-based layered security, GA1360 enables automated detection, tracking, deterrence, and response to intrusions within a 1 km radius of critical sites -- that’s up to 750 acres or 300 hectares covered by a single radar. Electric utility transmission substations, power generation plants, manufacturing facilities and airports are among the sites where GA1360 units are commonly deployed.
Next week at the ISC West Conference in Las Vegas, PureTech and OWL will be showcasing their cooperation by displaying the newest R-DAPSS model, equipped with OWL’s GroundAware Radar. Other OWL radar models are also available on the R-DAPSS platform.
Attendees of the ISC West conference that are interested in a cost-effective, rapid-deploy solution for perimeter security can visit PureTech at booth 13121 and OWL at booth 11099.
“OWL’s customers use radar systems in all types of environments, including areas where mounting, power and network connectivity are unavailable,” says Mike Stokes, OWL president. “We are delighted to partner with PureTech to make OWL radars available on R-DAPSS. This versatile platform provides the relocatable infrastructure needed for easy deployment of OWL radars and other surveillance assets already integrated by PureTech.”
“PureTech is pleased to be adding this impressive radar to the family of detection and tracking sensors supported by the R-DAPSS and PureActiv. Our objective is to always offer the best-fit perimeter protection solution to address our customer’s needs. Adding the GroundAware Radar family to the PureActiv R-DAPSS will enable us to address an ever-expanding set of rapid-deploy protection scenarios” said Larry Bowe, Jr., President of PureTech Systems.
