Partnering With Leading Robotic R&D Company Boston Dynamics Expands Asylon’s Robotic Security Platform
Philadelphia, PA: Asylon, Inc. is proud to announce its partnership with the world-leading robotic research and development company Boston Dynamics to integrate their unmanned ground vehicle (UGV), Spot, into the Asylon DroneCore Robotic Perimeter Security platform.
As the post-COVID world begins to take shape, security and remote access monitoring have emerged as board-level concerns. However, traditional security systems can be inefficient, outdated, and costly. Asylon is adding value to these existing systems with its Robotic Perimeter Security system and 24/7 Robotic Security Operation Center (RSOC) for teleoperation and mission assurance. Asylon has developed and integrated aerial and ground robotic systems into the automated Remote Perimeter Security platform known as DroneCore.
In reference to the new partnership, Michael Quiroga, Chief Revenue Officer at Asylon said, “Asylon is on a mission to build an ecosystem of advanced technologies to help our customers modernize their security postures. As such, we’re proud to enter into this partnership agreement with Boston Dynamics as we add their UGV to our best-in-class robotic security services. The coupling of air with ground robotics is a natural progression and unlocks enhanced observe and report security automation. As true modernization requires strong partnerships, our platform ecosystem partners will enable the most advanced robotic perimeter security solutions for our current and future customers.”
The Asylon security drone is designed to provide organizations with the fastest response to emergencies and alarms. Through automated security patrols, the drone can integrate with advanced sensors or detect anomalies by itself that require a response, such as intruders or overheating machinery, and enable human response teams to be appropriately prepared for potentially dangerous threats. The Asylon 24/7 RSOC delivers customers superior service and real-time mission assurance round-the-clock so that customers get the most of the DroneCore platform. Plus, the drone’s base station, DroneHome, is equipped with a robotic arm to autonomously replace low batteries, with a swap time of only 3 minutes, so that organizations can respond quickly in the case of an emergency.
To complement the aerial surveillance offered by Asylon’s automated security drone system, the partnership with Boston Dynamics to deliver a mobile and versatile DroneDog will provide customers with unprecedented automated ground and aerial surveillance. Boston Dynamics is focused on creating robots with advanced mobility, a mission that began over 30 years ago, to deliver functional and highly mobile robots. Unlike ground robots that run on wheels or tracks, Spot’s legged design makes it capable of traversing uneven and unpredictable terrain with organic, life-like motion. Its capabilities allow for organizations to employ safer and more efficient security operations while its 14KG capacity allows for organizations to add modules and features to meet their needs and multiple units can be applied for advanced perimeter monitoring.
Powered by the proprietary Asylon DroneIQ software system, ground and aerial security robots can be programmed to conduct routine patrols or respond to alarms triggered by Internet of Things (IoT) connected alarms. Because the robots are field-programmable, they support long-term software development and upgrades. The intelligent machines are capable of supporting multiple payload options for both aerial and ground assets to collect actionable data to improve security while the 24/7 RSOC delivers immediate remote control, monitoring, and intelligence services. These data driven solutions help unlock AI and prescriptive analytics for anomaly detection across multiple sites. From anywhere in the world, the DroneCore system can be controlled and the video feed can be viewed in real-time. To date, Asylon has launched, managed, and tracked over 10,000 automated drone missions through their platform for their customers.
This combination of technology makes Asylon the only American, full-service robotic perimeter company. The aerial drones have been designed, developed, and manufactured in Philadelphia, PA while Boston Dynamics designs and develops in Waltham, MA, and manufactures in the US.
Currently, an Asylon Fortune 500 customer is in the process of deploying three DroneDog systems for testing and evaluation to add complementary capabilities to their automated aerial drone security system. This customer and others who are following suit have interest in expanding to multiple sites throughout the United States. Limited early release of the news generated significant interest among other Fortune 500 customers who have already signed letters of intent to purchase and deploy DroneCore upon its full release. Asylon will be holding an online demonstration of the DroneCore system during the first week of May.
Until now, security has often meant deploying expensive cameras alongside multiple 24/7 guard posts and patrols. Security guards are too often thrown into dangerous and undefined situations. The full-service DroneCore package allows for real-time video monitoring, automated patrols and response missions, and powerful EO/IR aerial and ground vantage points to equip security personnel with the data they need to launch informed responses to potentially dangerous and hazardous situations.
Asylon and Boston Dynamics look forward to a partnership that will help modernize the security industry.
