REHOVOT, Israel and NEWARK, Calif.—Magos Systems, a manufacturer of advanced radar detection technology has partnered with the robotic aerial security company Nightingale Security to provide a fully-autonomous drone that is radar activated for perimeter security.Magos Americas.The solution combines Magos ground-based radar detection and classification with the Blackbird autonomous drone from Nightingale that can independently respond to an event, acting as a force multiplier for human guard forces. Magos radars work in conjunction with PTZ cameras and the Magos MASS+AI software to classify targets as wildlife, vehicles, persons, etc. to reduce nuisance alarms and categorize potential threats. Once the Magos radar solution detects a potential target, the Blackbird drone is automatically dispatched from its base station to the alarm location, streaming live video to the security team, and serving as a mobile PTZ. “Security teams monitoring large perimeters need instant intelligence on the location and type of threat and the ability to respond quickly based on that information,” states Yaron Zussman, General Manager,
“The threat classification capabilities of the Magos solution and the instant situational awareness provided by the Nightingale drone provide a completely automated solution to arm security officers with this intelligence.”
Blackbird Autonomous Drone Provide Next Level Parameter Security
The companies point out the blackbird autonomous drone is capable of flying in sustained winds up to 45 mph, and the Blackbird is specifically designed to fly for as long as 33 minutes for security applications. The solution provides the ability to collect video with both a visual sensor and a thermal sensor, the companies note the Blackbird can stream video to multiple users simultaneously and it can store the video in the Nightingale’s secure data storage. The autonomous drones also integrate with existing VMS, alarm sensor and alert systems.Nightingale.In addition, the Blackbird autonomous drone can be used in conjunction with any radar model in the Magos portfolio, providint detection from 150 meters up to 1000 meters. According to Mago Systems, the combination of radar with PTZ drones or PTZ cameras can dramatically simplify perimeter installations by reducing infrastructure requirements such as cameras, poles, cabling and communications, and power infrastructure. “The Magos radar and classification solution is an ideal sensor to alert Nightingale drones because of Magos’ high level of accuracy and reliability, regardless of environmental conditions,” adds Jack Wu, co-founder and chief executive officer of
“This combined solution is ideal for facilities with large perimeters, rough terrain for officers to traverse, or in remote locations where traditional camera perimeter installations are cost-prohibitive or difficult to install.”
