Observation Without Limits LLC Announces Enhancements to Perimeter Security System
HUNTSVILLE, Ala., July 22, 2021 /PRNewswire/ -- Observation Without Limits, LLC (O.W.L.), a Dynetics commercial business that delivers GroundAware® to customers worldwide, today announced enhancements to SOUNDAWARE, an advanced acoustic perimeter security system.
SOUNDAWARE was developed in response to the growing threat posed by drones and other unmanned systems. SOUNDAWARE is specifically designed to listen for the unique sounds drones make when they fly. Other passive sensors like infrared or visible range cameras often fail to detect them, leaving gaps in critical perimeter security measures.
"Our team has worked tirelessly to develop this commercial capability to help our customers fill gaps in their security strategies," said Jay Lightfoot, deputy division manager for Dynetics' Engineering Services and Solutions. "We believe this product can help round out a robust, multi-layered security solution for those who see an increase in drone security issues."
SOUNDAWARE provides perimeter security through 24/7 monitoring of a 360-degree area with a single sensor. It detects multiple simultaneously approaching drones and determines the direction and elevation.
As part of an integrated system, SOUNDAWARE can direct a number of responsive actions including pointing cameras to drones and other intruders, triggering security lights, and pushing alarm data to a police dispatching system.
