US airports to deploy RAD security robots

by Marco van der Hoeven

Artificial Intelligence Technology Solutions announced that its subsidiary Robotic Assistance Devices (RAD) is anticipating a multi-unit Proof of Concept order from a major US airport authority that owns and operates several airports.

“We are unquestionably seeing an uptick in interest and enthusiasm for the entire RAD suite of solutions, and the significance of this end-user and what the RAD units will do for them cannot be overstated,” said Steve Reinharz, President and CEO of RAD. “This deployment may forever transform how airports conduct security on and off the tarmac.”


The client is expected to deploy several RAD SCOT units in select customer-facing locations, plus multiple ROSA units along the perimeter of airport operations. SCOT (Security Control Observation Tower) stands 7’ tall and is capable of autonomously performing many of the tasks that a manned post would perform but at a fraction of the cost. SCOT can be positioned to monitor and record both human and vehicle activity in any environment, indoors or outdoors. RAD’s feature of SuspectSpotter uses artificial intelligence for accurate detection of people, and then can perform a variety of actions based on location, time of day and day of week.

SCOT also includes the capability of initiating emergency calls to remote monitoring personnel with two-way audio and video communications. In the case of an imminent threat or actual emergency, the guest would push the unit’s CALL SECURITY button. Immediately, they will be greeted by a remote monitoring officer who could then activate additional device alarms and dispatch security personnel or law enforcement. SCOT’s concierge and customer engagement features via its oversized web-enabled touch screen will provide welcome information services to airport guests.


ROSA (Responsive Observation Security Agent) is a compact, self-contained, security and communication solution that can be deployed in about 15 minutes. Like SCOT, it only requires power as it includes all necessary communications hardware. ROSA’s AI-driven security analytics include human and vehicle detection, license plate recognition, responsive digital signage and audio messaging, and complete integration with RAD’s software suite notification and response library. Two-way communication is optimized for cellular, including live video from ROSA’s dual high-resolution, full-color, always-on cameras. The airport authority is expected to utilize ROSA for enhanced detection and deterrence of trespassers and other unauthorized intruders to secure areas.
