ROCKVILLE, Md., June 24, 2014 /PRNewswire/ -- Intelligent Automation, Inc. (IAI) announced today that it recently completed an extensive tactical evaluation of its ARGUS™ Radio Frequency (RF)-based perimeter security system at the Deployable Force Protection (DFP) Adaptive Red Team (ART) Technical Support and Operational Analysis (TSOA) at the Marine Corp Base, Quantico, VA. The ART/TSOA is a quarterly experiment activity supporting the Office of the Secretary of Defense (OSD) DFP program, which addresses force protection issues and technologies at small, forward operating bases. At this TSOA evaluation, warfighters and other Government personnel deployed ARGUS™ in realistic tactical scenarios to exercise its physical security capabilities, identify potential systems improvements, and to determine solutions to defeat operational vulnerabilities. "Intelligent Automation greatly values our opportunity to participate in the OSD TSOA exercises with our ARGUS™ security product," said Dr. Peter Chen, Argus™ Product Manager and Senior Director of Advanced Technologies at IAI. "We believe that ARGUS™ will provide a new level of security for our expeditionary forces and offer significant savings in manpower and resources."
IAI's ARGUS™ product consists of networked wireless sensors that form a protective, invisible trip wire for enhanced situational awareness. Mobile and permanent installations are both supported. ARGUS™ is inherently network aware, self-healing, and has been integrated with existing integration sensor interface formats such as Cursor-on-Target (CoT) and the Raptor-X situational awareness platform. Other experiments integrating ARGUS™ with network sensor systems such as BETSS-C and Cerberus have also been performed. In 2013, IAI received funding from the Deployable Force Protection (DFP) Program, under an Army Rapid Innovation Fund (RIF) contract, to further develop the next-generation ARGUS™ technology, and to fully integrate ARGUS™ with DFP's Integrated Sensor Architecture. Countermeasures have been devised for jamming and spoofing, and additional features have been developed to meet warfighter needs. ARGUS™ is being expanded to add multi-sensor functionalities for long-term, unattended operations under an Office of Naval Research Program. IAI is also currently under contract with the Department of Homeland Security (DHS) to develop a variant of ARGUS™ optimized for deployment along the U.S. northern border to detect, localize, and track personnel in wooded terrain.
ARGUS™ is offered for direct sale by IAI and distributed by our partners for the Defense, Industrial, Surveillance, and First Responder markets. ARGUS™ product information is available at www.i-a-i.com/argus and at https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=UG3YAtHGus4.
