Magal receives RoboGuard order

24th March 2017 - 14:30 GMT | by The Shephard News Team


Magal Security Systems has received a serial order for its RoboGuard system from an Israeli government customer, the company announced on 21 March.

The customer has already conducted in-field testing and inspections, and has declared the system operational.

RoboGuard is an agile scout robot designed to perform perimeter security for critical sites and infrastructure. It runs along secured fences, ensuring perimeter integrity and is capable of responding promptly to intrusion alerts.

The system consists of an autonomous unit, traveling on a monorail and carrying several sensors. It has two operating modes: routine patrol mode, in which it travels autonomously scanning and searching for perimeter anomalies or nearby suspected objects; and response mode, in which it homes in on suspected intrusions, acting as a first responder.

Saar Koursh, CEO, Magal-S3, said: 'We are very pleased with this initial launch order and are proud that our revolutionary RoboGuard has successfully met the rigorous testing and inspection procedures of our launching customer.

'We value the selection of RoboGuard by this particular customer, which serves as a stamp of approval at the highest level for this unique perimeter intrusion deduction system. We see further considerable interest from our customers looking to save manpower costs with our Roboguard systems.'
