Companies to present their joint solution at the US Army Force Protection Equipment Demonstration (FPED VII) May 19-21
Princeton NJ and Durham NC– May 18, 2009 – SightLogix, Inc., maker of outdoor intelligent video surveillance systems for critical infrastructure protection, and GigaBeam Corporation (GGBM.PK), the leader in multi-gigabit wireless communication technology, have partnered to provide wireless surveillance solutions for commercial and government customers who need to protect large perimeters and outdoor areas.
SightLogix’ fixed and rapid-deployment visible and thermal SightSensors™ reliably detect outdoor intrusions at long and wide ranges under virtually any weather conditions. When deployed in conjunction with GigaBeam’s highly flexible, high-capacity wireless backhaul networks, customers such as enterprises, departments/ministries of defense, local municipalities, universities, medical centers, banks, and other government agencies gain a ubiquitous outdoor surveillance solution for enhanced physical security and force protection.
“Many surveillance applications are in remote locations and areas where infrastructure for setup and communications is difficult, time-consuming, and too costly to provide,” said John Romanowich, SightLogix’ President and CEO. “Wireless, automated video solutions that can be quickly deployed regardless of available infrastructure,” he continued, “represents an invaluable tool for protecting critical infrastructure, key assets, or security personnel.”
“Our relationship with SightLogix is very exciting for us. It’s absolutely a logical adaptation of our expanded product offering in a surveillance application utilizing revolutionary sensors such as theirs,” said S. Jay Lawrence, GigaBeam Corporation CEO. “The ability to build a total wireless network, leveraging the right communications tool for the job, will create the opportunity for expense and time savings as well as being non-invasive to the environment.”
SightLogix’ intelligent video cameras incorporate edge-based video analytics for accurately detecting targets quickly and efficiently. Combining this functionality with GigaBeam’s extensive (up to multi-gigabit-per-second) wireless networking capacity makes outdoor surveillance economical, ubiquitous and reliable. Wireless intelligent video surveillance that can also be rapidly deployed satisfies many security needs, including scene lockdown around emergency events, perimeter detection for SWAT and active shooter operations, security around forward deployed mobile command posts, and preemptive security around commercial sites and areas of national significance.
The companies will present their technologies in the SightLogix booth (#27-I) at the US Army FPED VII event, May 19-21 at the Stafford County Regional Airport, Stafford, Virginia.
SightLogix’ surveillance solutions have been purchased by the US Department of Homeland Security for their ownperimeter security needs and selected by DHS for the 2008 CEDAP program. The company’s automated perimeter security solutions have been deployed around the world to meet the serious outdoor security needs of the transportation, energy, utility, chemical, information technology, public safety and defense industries.
