Perimeter Security for 140 Airports at Cost of a Small Jet

SALT LAKE CITY–(BUSINESS WIRE)–Available now for non-military use, SpotterRF’s groundbreaking and affordable Compact Surveillance Radar (CSR) could protect 140 of the nation’s airports (450 acres/airport) for less than the cost of one small passenger jet (CJ200) like the one recently taken, damaged and nearly stolen in a recent airport perimeter breach at the St. George Municipal Airport in Utah.

“Before now, small airports could not afford to put in Ground Surveillance Radar systems like the ASDE-3 that runs between 10 to 12 million dollars. With the advent of Compact Surveillance Radar technology, a radar system that covers 150 acres can be put in place for less than $50,000.”

“Small airports have a difficult job protecting their perimeters with limited funds and resources,” says Logan Harris, CEO of SpotterRF. “Before now, small airports could not afford to put in Ground Surveillance Radar systems like the ASDE-3 that runs between 10 to 12 million dollars. With the advent of Compact Surveillance Radar technology, a radar system that covers 150 acres can be put in place for less than $50,000.”

More than 1,300 perimeter security incursions have been reported at US airports since 9/11*, yet 87 percent of the nation’s airports have not been through a perimeter security assessment.** While some of the nation’s largest airports use ground radar, hundreds of smaller airports and millions of passengers remain vulnerable.

The St. George incident highlights the need for CSR, the smallest and lowest-cost Surveillance Radar for commercial and homeland security use. Leveraging patented technology available previously only to the U.S. military, SpotterRF’s radar is the first of its class, and as inexpensive and easy to use as IP cameras. It provides 100 percent coverage not possible with costly legacy systems. This breakthrough compact surveillance radar provides wide area intrusion detection regardless of weather conditions or visibility.
