YAHUD, Israel, September 3, 2014 /PRNewswire/ --

Magal Security Systems, Ltd. (NASDAQ: MAGS) the world leader in perimeter security solutions, will be showcasing its innovative RoboGuard at the ASIS USA show, which will be held in Atlanta, GA, on Sept. 29th.

RoboGuard is an agile surveillance robot that travels on a monorail, constantly patrolling a secured perimeter.  It conducts regular inspections of the fence line, which are essential to maintaining the integrity of the perimeter. It can also promptly respond and check on any suspected intrusion as needed.  A complete system consists of autonomous robots, each covering up to 1 km, with a battery recharging docking station for every two robots.

Eitan Livneh, President and CEO of Magal S3, commented: "Magal S3 is proud to pioneer the introduction of automation into the perimeter security market. Our challenge was to deliver an affordable solution which can accomplish two main tasks: that of routine perimeter integrity inspection, which is typically undertaken by guards a few times each day, and the uncompromising requirement to respond promptly to any and every intrusion alert - be it a nuisance alert or real security event."

Mr. Livneh added: "Our solution is ideal for remotely monitored unmanned sites, where a timely first response by manned guards would be impractical or expensive. It can also cost-effectively augment first responders on larger critical sites like airports, seaports, military bases and prisons, where there may be insufficient resources to provide a timely response. We believe that a solution combining RoboGuard with a fence using our smart sensors is by far the most cost-effective security solution."

More about RoboGuard 

RoboGuard is a revolutionary agile scout, running on a monorail which is attached to the fence structure, powered by a rechargeable battery, with two main modes of operation:

  • Routine patrol, in which it travels autonomously at about 7 kilometers per hour, scanning and searching for perimeter anomalies such as fence holes or nearby suspicious objects
  • Fast Response, in which the robot rushes promptly to hone in on a suspected intrusion, acting as a first responder

A single robot typically covers 500 - 1,000 meters (1,600'-3,300'), depending on the required response time, with a docking station in between two adjacent robots,  servicing them both with battery recharging and wireless communication. The RoboGuard payload choice is quite flexible, but a typical configuration includes:

  • Laser scanner, that acts as a short range 3D LIDAR (Light Radar) for perimeter inspection
  • Fixed camera with IR illuminator for short range perimeter surveillance and threats verification
  • PTZ camera with IR illuminator for medium range surveillance and tracking
  • Two-way intercom between the control room and a potential intruder
